    Hello from Montreal, Canada.

    My background is 43 years as a member of Canada’s Rock group April Wine.

    With everyone staying at home, it’s good to talk shop.

    Thank TS. Missing is my Custom Shop EC Strat in Mercedes Blue. It’s my road axe. Now in storage with the rest of the gear until we can tour again because of the virus. It could be a while til I see it again.

    Wow, welcome Brian. Great to have you here. I look forward to your insight about the Canadian rock scene.

    Do I spot that Les Paul in this video?

    Welcome aboard Brian,
    Being a kid from Canada with a guitar obsession, I spent a lot of time listening to April Wine records trying to figure out how to play your songs.

    Anyway, with everyone isolating, things are pretty active in the forums these days so there’s lots to read about and discuss.

    It looks like you’re well equipped with your three 6 string companions.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Welcome. Very cool to have you here.

    Is that red finish on the les Paul the original?

    I always wondered where that was. I imagined it was at one of the guys houses and it was just a typical weekend scene of hanging out and making music. Killer song back in the day and a killer song today.
