    Hello all! I'm Kevin, 54 years accumulated and I've been learning guitar for over 40 years. I've been on and off again for many years and enjoy 60s, 70s and early 80s classic rock mostly, but SRV is my guitar hero. My latest iteration of 'learning' is a keen interest in his style, and Buddy Guy's, of the blues. I just recently bought my first Strat, a lovely 3-color sunburst, HSS Player. Glad to have found this forum and look forward to participating.

    Welcome to the madness! :)

    And I'm down in SC near the coast.

    You should post some pics of your newly-acquired beauty!

    Old Stevie Ray was a favorite of mine also. I think his version of the sky is crying is some of the best guitar playing of the century. Welcome to a good forum with some great people.

    Welcome. SRV and Buddy Guy are 2 of my favorites. I love to butcher "Mary had a little lamb".

    Welcome sir! Just picked a used one up myself(MIM Standard). Although I believe mine is the 2-tone sunburst? I could be wrong.

    Btw, I currently live here in NC also on the OBX.

    Hey there! Yours looks more three tone than mine does, I think mine looks more like a tobacco burst. I want to get over to the OBX someday for camping and fishing. Have an old buddy that lives there now and flies helicopters for an EMT service.
