    Just a quick hello to everyone and a few words about myself.
    I'm from the West Midlands in England, not far from Birmingham, 56 years young and married.
    Been playing guitar since I was 13.
    Played in bands in my younger days, up until about 15 years ago. Now I just play at home for my own enjoyment. Occasionally I go out and jam with friends, but since Covid happened this has been less frequent. Hopefully things will get better soon.
    Looking forward to joining in discussions here.
    Stay safe all

    Whew, glad the pics uoloaded, even though there were duplicates, lol.
    Thanks for the compliment, Stonetone. It's taken me a good few years to collect the guitars I have. Sold a few along the way. Happy with what I have now........for now, lol.
    Luckily, I had photographed my guitars a while back. I had taken out an insurance policy, incase the house got burgled, and thought it prudent to have photos on my laptop just in case I ever needed to claim. Hopefully that won't ever be the case .
