Anyone been watching James May’s Reassembler programmes the last couple of nights on BBC4? If you have, you’ll probably be aware of this, but if not, then tonight, at 9, he’s putting an electric guitar back together again. Looks like a Strat.
The last two episodes have been great – a Suffolk Colt on Monday (which I’m sure my Dad had – sometime in the late 80s) and a Bakelite telephone last night. It comes under that slightly annoyingly named category of “slow TV” – but it’s fascinating stuff.
