Good news, Mark. :)

I used it when I lived in a flat in Peterhead. My neighbours probably still heard it, but it was not as loud as the other anglo which I had at the time (by far the loudest which I have ever played).

A lovely instrument, with a beautiful tone.


As far as I am aware, I was its third owner, and had it from August 1992 to August 1994.


I was the fourth, having bought it from Peter for £1300 as I recall (I think I've still got the receipt somewhere), and sold it to Mark early on this century. Mark, I'm glad you're playing it. It is a lovely box. Steve D. once told me that he made only a very few 6 sided 40 button boxes and I remember it as a real gem. When Anne and I used to gig it was my main instrument and went over to the States with me on three occasions. I rather regret selling it, TBH, but I needed the money to fund a gradual return to normal life after a stroke. It would be wasted on me now, though, as I mostly play G/D nowadays, or my C/G baritone, and just sold my last C/G treble to a friend because it wasn't being used. So do please play it for both of us.
