Good thing he's sitting down! I took my Ferrington to band practice a few days ago as an experiment and prior to that had never realized how bad is the neck dive on that thing. Still like it tho!

Isn't that Lindsey Buckingham? I think he's playing that weird Rick Turner acoustic electric thing.

shrug

and +1 on the Ferrington neck dive. I have a Ferrington tele that's so neck heavy it will drag you off a barstool if you're not careful.

Yup.

My bad. I just looked at the picture.

I have no business commenting on Fleetwood Mac anyway........

Way out of my genre.

What y'all talking about? First, never speak bad about a Ferrington or I will post the Kramer Ferrington Registry every :whistle hour.

Second, y'all got puny arms or something that can't hold a 2 pound guitar? dielaughing

I'm just saying that the tuners and headstock weigh more than the whole rest of the guitar, so every time I take my hand of the neck to reposition the mic or to make a devil horn gesture or wipe mascara out of my eyes, the neck flops straight down like I'm losing my erection, which is annoying since I've never, ever, ever experienced that before.
Still love mine, tho. It's like one of those hot chicks that won't behave.
Mine also is the tele, so maybe it's the position of the strap pins. It was mostly weird to realize that until this week I probably never had tried to play mine standing up.

Like the video! Ferrington guy sitting down in nearly every shot, just sayin'
