    First of all, Happy to be back!

    After loging in, i realized its been more than 3 years since I've posted anything.

    A lot has changed since then. I finished university as an industrial engineer and got a job onboard a luxury cruise ship, so I've been travelling a lot and working a lot as well.

    Of course this lifestile meant that keeping the over 40 pedals, few amps and around 10 guitars I had amassed was no longer viable, so I sold it all of and instead focused on buying a guitar to travel with me, which of course, it is a strat, beautiful american 60 anniversary commemorative model. And after that everytime I got a promotion I've gifted myself something special. That led to a beautiful Non-Reverse Pelham blue Firebird, and more recently a gorgeous American Professional Jazzmaster. That also means that in two weeks when I deploy again I will not take one of this three with me, as it is shopping time again!

    To all of those who are still around from the old days, I salute you! And to all the newer guys, looking forward to participating on your threads.

    welcome home! I approve of your guitars all beautiful looking, i really dig the color of the firebird, it was bugging me looking at them on their sides, i stood them up so i can get a better look at them

    Welcome back!
    I never realised how similar the non-reverse Firebird and the Jazz master are!!!
    As @Polarbear says, the colour on the JM is outstanding! :D

    I'll be lying if I said I wasn't envious.

    Recognized you right off the hop, and glad you are back! Congratulations on finishing your education too, and then doing something with it, that's a big deal man, and you have my respect.

    Keep that boat in one piece brother.
