Queen - We Are the Champions - Final Live in Japan Full Concert 1985

Queen - We Are the Champions - Final Live in Japan Full Concert 1985

We Are the Champions: Final Live in Japan is a live concert video of English rock band Queen's performance at the Yoyogi National Gymnasium, Tokyo on May 11, 1985 as part of the Japanese leg of The Works Tour. The film's title is slightly inaccurate, as Queen actually performed two more shows in Japan. The 90-minute film is not the full concert, leaving out Brian May's guitar solo and Dragon Attack. The video is also edited for time by cutting away setup waits between songs. Only officially released in Japan, it first appeared as a video release in 1992, then as a laserdisc release, before a DVD release in 2004 with new artwork, and a 2006 under the title Live in Japan 1985. The concert footage has not been studio-corrected to remove errors in sound, unlike other Queen concert video releases

Groove Guitars - Gibson Explorer copy

I recently acquired a Groove Explorer guitar with gold hardware and threw neck.
The set up was quite terrible really. Strings a mile high and the pick ups far too low. Plugged guitar in and could hardly hear anything. The tone control for the bridge pick up has to twist anti clockwise which caused some confusion at first.

But after some truss rod adjustment, lowering the action and heightened the pickups the Groove Explorer makes a quite nice little guitar.

It's a shame that a beginner would buy a guitar like this in the shop and find it almost unplayable.
