    Hi Everyone,

    I'm 62 years young and am a recent retiree. I've been playing guitar for 40+ years, but didn't get serious about playing until about 18 months ago. I'm currently enrolled in the Breakthrough Guitar course and I can tell you without hesitation that it has helped me improve more quickly than anything else I've ever tried.

    I own a number of acoustic and electric guitars and I can honestly tell you that my favorite is whichever one I'm playing at the moment.

    I've also put together a parts caster Tele and am about to do the same with a Strat.

    Really looking forward to getting to know other like minded guitar players to learn and share info.

    Welcome to Strat Talk!

    Since you're from SJ, I've gotta ask: Have you been to Cowtown?

    Howdy from over by AC. And yes, CowTown is a hoot. Well, used to be, haven't been in quite a few years now.

    Nice! Yes...it's been quite a few years for me as well. Are you close to Northfield? I worked off of Tilton road back in the day.

    Hello from your neighbour to the north! I'm curious what type of stuff you are learning in the course? Would you say you are working more with theory or technique?

    And as mentioned above, would love to see pics of these guitars, especially the partscaster tele!

    Here's another welcome from SE Pennsylvania, Bucks County. As you're working on your strat build, know that there are a lot of *really* knowledgeable and experienced people here who can offer advice if you ask. When you're done, we'd love to see (and hear) the results!
