Hello, everybody, it’s nice to be here out in the open now. I’ve been checking out the site for I guess at least about six months and have been pretty impressed with the level of knowledge and the general friendliness, as well as the many pics of some great guitars. I would’ve signed on earlier, but for some reason I wanted to wait until I finally got my Blackmore Strat, which was about a week ago. I also have a ‘84 Japanese Squier I’ve had since it was made, along with several others, among them an Epi Dot, Epi Les Paul, and a Tele. Played in bands for years, some good, most bad, but these days I do an awful lot of original stuff in my little attic home studio on my DAW. Not much of an audience there, obviously, but it’s still very satisfying. I’ll say right off the bat I’m clearly not nearly as knowledgeable as a great many of you, but I plan to contribute when I can. Again, feels good to be here.
