Hello from the Florida Gulf Coast. I came across the forum while looking for someone to appraise my '69 Strat. I literally pulled the guitar off my wall (after a 40-year retirement) to see if playing would help me rehabilitate some fingers that have not healed very quickly after being dislocated. I also found Reverb.com and Sweetwater.com. While browsing Sweetwater, I learned about "Home Studio Recording" and now I am hooked. In the past month, I have pulled my Alvarez Yairis (DY-85 and DY-76, both 1978) off the same wall and I am happily laying down tracks. I certainly don't need a '69 Strat for home recording, but what the hell, it looks good in pictures.
