I just received these beauties this morning. 

Tim Mills at Bare Knuckle Pickups made a limited edition batch of these Unity humbuckers recently, only 200 sets made. I’m planning a special build for these, a double cut of some kind. They are 50mm spaced humbuckers with powder coated graphics, hand wound by the man himself on his original winder he used when first starting out. He sold out every set in a matter of hours and I’m so pleased to be one of the owners and happy my money has gone to such a good cause. The money raised was £10,000 and it has all gone to help aid for millions of displaced people in and around Ukraine due to the Russian invasion. 

Without getting too political, I’m just doing something positive to help people in the world as well as pushing myself to do more with my passion of guitar building. 

I’ll be in the process of moving house soon so this project will be a slow burn but I’ll keep you up to date.

@koendb Yeah they certainly do, I’m looking forward to getting them installed into something cool and listening to the quality of them. 🇺🇦

I’ve not had much input this week due to me being in SCOTLAND 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🥳🥳🥳🥳

I’m not too far away from where your caravan is @robin 

I’m a few towns away, just up the road. 

I now have a Scottish solicitor to handle all my Scotland affairs 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 All I have to do now is buy a house. 

It was a very dramatic sky here last night. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

That's our healthy pie @boo. Try our heart bursting macaroni pie. 

Macaroni pies

 There was a public outcry a few years ago when Gregg's tried to discontinue it. A petition was organised to have it reinstated. 🤣 

No wonder we're the unhealthiest nation in Europe. 🙄🫤😂 

🙂🎸🎶🙏

Deep Fried Mars bar

World famous. All the tourists travel from all over the world to have their picture taken outside The Carron Fish Bar in Stonehaven where it is claimed it was first sampled........I can feel the arteries filling up just thinking about it. 😂😬

@rocknroller912 I’ve still never tried one. One day. I’m trying to be good though, apart from the haggis pie (I couldn’t resist).

You can also put a pie in a buttered roll if you can fit your jaws around it.

Probably passed quite close to my place if you are on the West Coast. Welcome to call in on the way back.

@rocknroller912 Thanks very much for the kind offer, I appreciate it. I doubt we will have time this time, we have a busy schedule, too busy for my liking.

@rocknroller912 oh... we have those here too. Sooo good but you can feel the heart beat start to speed up. That means they are really good for you right? When we make them now I get the tiny Mars bars they sell at Halloween. Same great taste... half the time to recover from the heart attack. 🙂

I can see you have assimilated already. Have you developed a taste for Irn Bru yet
