Now if you check the video carefully it's plain to see that he's using a very rare 1943 silver spoon custom made by the famous spoon luthier, Easterbunny. A modern spoon just won't give you the quality of tone that you get from that spoon. Even the 1945 version - when they introduced mass production - isn't as good. Just check out the reviews on Harmony.

Easterbunny now make a Custom Shop version by special order and there's also a cheaper version made by their sister company Toothfairy. Some claim you can't tell the two apart but trust me - you can. Also don't confuse this spoon with the Japanese ShredSpoon which has a much thinner handle that lets you shovel food into your mouth at lightning speed.

I have it on very good authority that a 1943 unplayed spoon still in it's original box was sold at auction for 400,000USD recently to someone called Mr. U Geller.

So get to know your spoons guys wink.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

Mmm-kay tony.
I have to check your stance on "playing under the influence" in a rescent thread.
Brilliant and to the point though biggrin.gif
And you remembered Mr Geller!

/edit: I forgot a closing """, they are important.

Actually, when I registered on this site I was first aiming at "oneyedwillie" because I'm not blind really and maybe that would offend someone. I did'nt know you guys then. Now I know it would tongue.gif
As it turned out blindwillie better me suits, and your suggestion I deserve. More and more it is.

/second edit: I didn't think that me not being blind would offend someone. I meant that ... *sigh* you know what I mean. See, it gets worse by the minute.
