I've just put this acoustic guitar on e-bay. I had to ask Bruce Watson how to do it. The guitar belonged to Charlie Burchill, and may have been used on albums from Once Upon a Time to Neapolis.
I had an identical guitar, and I gave it to Derek McInnes ex Rangers and Dundee United player, as he was learning. So, Charlie new I would need another one, and gave me his. Fantastic gesture. I have had my eyes on an old Washburn guitar in Crewe, ever since the Spear of Destiny 'Westworld 'weekend at the Limelight Club.The guitar is just over 100 years old, and is one of the best and loudest acoustics I've ever heard. So listen out for it on the album and see it live, if I can get it. Anyone interested in the Yamaha acoustic should go to the Music/Rock Memorabilia/Concert Memorabilia. I've listed it under Simple Minds, Charlie Burchill, Derek Forbes guitar. See you all at Port Patrick and hello to all our potential fans in good old Belfast.
