JP Strat NGS Guitars Shifter series 007

1972, my first guitar

When I was 13 I bought my first guitar from Anne Maccari who had a small music shop in Portslade, Brighton, where we lived. It cost £13.50. Red satin bell-bottoms and bright tangerine Bowie hair… banned from school but loving the Brighton rock!

For Sandi Croatia – 2023 NGS full build, roadie faded sonic blue.

NS and NGS Guitars

I took myself into all the junk shops in the Brighton station district and found a Watkins Westminster 35 watt valve combo 60s amp for about 30 quid. It had a amazing overdrive and it got me holding on to that third fret.

”I spent months just making freaking sounds through a Coloursound (Maccari’s) Fuzz Wah pedal.

The raw valve distortion had me hooked”. Nick Garrett

All that really interested me was the texture of sound and shaping feedback.

It still does.
