Meeting Roland at the Lido.

We played two sold out shows at The Lido in Fort St John, B.C., April 1 and 2. It was at this beautiful , retro-style venu that we meet Roland who is a serious guitar collector. I forget how many signed guitars he said he has in his collection but there are many! An ex-roadie, he`s had the opportunity to meet lot`s of bands over the years and now that list includes April Wine. He dropped by the hotel as we were checking out and I signed this guitar for him.

 

The cost of customizing the look of Roland “April Wine” guitar I don`t know, I`d need to look carefully at it but it does not necessarily cost a great deal of $$$ One the other hand,  a custom paint job can be expensive.

Whatever it looks cool.

    I know that on FB the ‘moderator’ responded to a query about the number of guitars you have .. over 100 I believe. Have you ever thought (or have your been approached) to discuss your love affair on the HiFi channel’s Guitar Picks?

    No, never have. I have not seen the show, not sure if that`s the one hosted by Kim Mitchell. I hope to feature many of my guitars here but still waiting on a few tech issues with the blog. I might have them solved today actually and if, so I`ll start posting pics of my collection. I`m looking forward to it.
