Just found out about this forum thanks to Lola. Those of you who are familiar with Fury guitars based out of Saskatoon will likely have heard the sad news of the passing of founder Glenn McDougall. I am the proud owner of one of his fine guitars, a BBM (stands for bread and butter machine) with a pau ferro fingerboard (sort of a cross between rosewood and maple). I like to buy Canadian gear when I can and also have a Godin 5th Avenue and Seagull S6 acoustic as well as an American Standard telecaster which is my go to guitar.

My main amp is an old Mesa Boogie Mark 3 that I can barely lift (my handle on another forum is Boogieman but I see that this forum already has one). I also have a Carvin Vintage 16 amp for smaller venues and a Fender Mustang 1 for practice.

I have been playing guitar for many years but now mainly as a hobby and am trying to learn some new styles including blues, country, and jazz (last one's a toughie!). I would be interested in touching base with any other players in my area who are doing something similar.

Welcome! I am down in Regina but grew up south of Saskatoon near Outlook. Sad to hear about Glenn but hopefully the Fury brand will live on!

I saved this Fury relic when I was in Grade 9 from going to the local dump and sold it 5 years ago to Myles Goodwyn of April Wine. I believe he has around 7 Fury guitars. My parents took it into Glenn and he was going to restore it to its former glory for Myles. I unfortunately play left handed, otherwise I would have kept it:

Hey thanks. Always wondered what Glenn was up to with "BBM".

See my Fireball in my avatar. One of the final two made with no pickguard.

Also have a Bandit which can be seen in my post " Glenn Mcdougall. RIP" which was the first in Memorium for Glenn, but got pushed to the back by a later one. Find in the forum menu.

I visit Saskatoon occasionally and would be happy to jam for an hour or two. Go for "Autumn Leaves" (in one sharp) and "All of Me" (in one flat). You play guitar, I will play chromatic harmonica.
