    Hi, I'm a guitar nut from Melbourne, Australia. I have a MIJ Strat, MIM Tele, Les Paul Faded T and an Ibanez JEM. My wife is sick of me talking about guitars, so I need another outlet. I'm into hard rock and blues.

    Oh good, a Mexican. :D

    You are most welcome.

    Hope you didn't get smashed in the storm earlier in the week, and you'll be out of lockdown tomorrow - assuming all the numpties followed the isolation regimen.

    Good to have Melbs represented some more.

    You know, the only good thing about NSW is that it separates QLD from Victoria, right :whistling::cool::p:D

    At least, that's what I tell myself every day. hashtag lifeinshitsville

    BTW, your wife will come up with other reasons now - such as "Are you going to spend time away from that darned computer???"

    It's a no-win situation. Maybe you need to fire up a few Episodes of That Pedal Show on the TV and see if that annoys her some more.

    SWMBO will actually sit and watch TPS with me, and JHS show. So I got off easy on that front.

    Another welcome... and from a Pom.

    Hope you'll find friendly folks here. I've been to your beautiful city several times and found it very friendly as well as open, clean, sunlit, fun and generally rather fine.

    Welcome!

    Around here, I provide the break from Mrs' discussion of the latest crime show she is watching (or UK royalty show)...lately they have been heavy on murder...I wonder if that is a red flag?

    Heard about ^^this^^, too.

    Great guitar collection...the Ibanez has a great finish on it.
