    Hi everyone,

    I'm a carpenter by trade, an advanced amateur radio operator, and a hobby violin luthier.

    I play guitar & fiddle, have done since my early teens. In a country band for 3 years.

    Have a 1985 MIJ Squire. Love it & presently doing upgrades.

    Bought my son a Fender Standard Strat Plus Top Tobacco MIM.

    Looking at building a couple of Strats. Love them.

    Scott

    Welcome aboard! I was born in Sault Ste. Marie, and I have been playing guitar badly for decades.

    Welcom aboard fellow Ontartiotonian.....eh

    There are some other ameteur radio operators about but most seem to be hiding in the woodwork.:rolleyes: ( whispers think that will draw them out?)

    I am also a Ham ( mostly PSK31 and SSTV these days) but not a fiddle enthusiast although I do play banjo....lol
