Re: pics from tv show-HOTEL-Jan.1988

Looking at those pictures again after a few years, I notice he's playing his McGlincy guitar. Gord had a dread made and I believe Terry C. had a 000 made with the same decorations.

Re: 12 string Gibson damaged onstage

From reading the rest of the posts on the forum that this story came from, it sounds like the guitar lost just the one big piece. Probably easily repaired. Gord likely has a go-to guitar tech/repair...
