Just a few months ago, Gordon Giltrap sent me a photo of Vin and himself at Roger Bucknall's do. This was to celebrate Fylde Guitars.
We all were amongst the first pro's to play Fylde Instruments in early 1970's. Vin played a Caliban, I think, with a cutaway.
Vin's contribution to the UK folk scene (and overseas) was huge.
Many close friends of his will be very shocked and saddened at his passing. His family will be in all our thoughts.
