    Hi there!

    I just wrote almost a book about myself, wanted to add a picture and then lost all my text. This one will have to be shorter now...

    I play guitar since I am 15 years old (turned 40 this year) and got my american standard stratocaster ´89 shortly after. After many years of on and off playing, a year ago finally my motivation to play sky rocketetd and is now here to stay! Hooray! My trusty strat is now 30 years old, I had the frets trimmed recently and 1,5 years ago I switched the bridge pickup to a dimarzio super distortion s with a 3way-switch for humbucking, single coil and parallel humbucking mode. Awesomely versatile!

    Sadly I have a weird pickup issue (which I can´t remember if it has been there before my mod) which is mostly prominent under high gain situations and I need help desperately. But for this I will do another post.

    Nice to be here, see you around, Marcus

    Hi, your story sounds a bit like mine, I've been playing bit on and off. For me Brian May was/is the inspiration to start from. Though some other guitarist or musical genres have been getting my attraction lately. Herzlich willkommen! (If I remember it correctly;))

    Welcome. Bavaria is lovely. I felt especially comfortable with the people, there. My friends, there, consider themselves more as Bavarians than as Germans!
