15 Sep Playing “Clean” An Original Schaffer Vega Diversity at Borghesani’s/Cloe Guitars

It's a little, foolish video we did the other day at the Lab. I had heard suddenly  Daniel's (the singer)  voice (he was silently and diligently working to some amp internals and at some point he went "Oh Ba-by!") and I thought to myself "Woah there. Good singer". So I asked him to do a little blues jingle for 2 minutes. I took the chance to play my Schaffer Vega with it. Guitar is latest Luca's (Cloe Guitars) 1959 Replica done to exacting specs. Great guitar. Enjoy?   Fil ;)
