about my guitar

I named my guitar Thelxinoë based on the concept of my music being full of magick. She has been with me since late 1994, when I gave up my old guitar (which had a warped neck, and therefore, impossible tuning problems). I’ve decorated her in various ways since her acquisition, including a cling sticker of a smashed fairy from Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book, by Terry Jones of Monty Python.

You’ll notice she’s a Fender, and has the classic Fender head with all the tuning pegs on one side. She’s got decent action (it’s a bit high, I’ve been meaning to get the bridge shaved down a little) and a lovely tone with a nice, long sustain
