showaddywaddy blue moon guitar — added to my collection 19th february 2010

Guitarist Russ Field pictured just prior to appearing on BBC TV. The paint was still drying as the guitar had been built in 72 hours by Brian Eastwood--a schedule reduced by 2 1/2 weeks due to the oldie "Blue Moon" charting earlier than expected! Evidently the detatchable feet had an uncomfortable "knock on" effect!

The “Blue Moon” guitar is probably the UK’s most widely publicised and photogenic custom built electric guitar — the film dates from early December 1980
