Smooth f.m. Radio Interview

Re: LIVE SESSION VIDEO OF CHRIS

Just watched the videos from Radio2. They were fabulous. Good old BBC ....... Bart next time you see Chris ask him to get them all on a DVD. I felt as though I was in the studio with them. Not watching a huge concert, much better to see Chris close up with the band, almost like a studio setting conc...

Re: MOSCOW, 28 Feb 2008

Hi Serge, Thanks for these fantastic pictures. It shows Chris is playing one of his many "maranello classics" irrespective of the headstock name. These are great guitars, especially at the price. Just shows how a reasonably priced guitar can sound in the hands of a maestro like Chris. BRILLIANT 8)

Re: CR Guitars

What a great thread on CR's guitars. I have played a strat for many years then about 5 years ago added a telecaster to my collection. Finally a Maranello Classic in blue sparkle. "What a guitar" the Maranello has turned out to be. No wonder Chris bought a job-lot in Denmark Street. With some effort ...
