    Well it’s been a while since I posted on any guitar forums, but found your site and thought I’d join..

    Started playing in the Early 70’s before I went in the military. Dragged the guitar from base to base (~1970 Les Paul Professional) Many guitars later.. two wives (kept number two :) ) one kid, a couple careers in between.. but still playing “at” it tho!
    I’m a big DIY guy, building parts guitars and rebuilding old amps and building clones. Not much building anymore, but I have my little farm of 4 Strats, Tele and Gibson Les Paul Special.. got amps stuffed in closets all around the house, but currently using Tweed Deluxe, 2 Egnater Tweakers, and 2 Marshall Origin 20s.. Cheap, but fun equipment.

    So I figured in these later years, I’m now gonna figure this damn thing out.. :)

    We’ll muddle through this music stuff together here at Strat-Talk
    Happy to see that you're getting smarter as you get older, but
    we anxiously await the posting of photos of your gear ( cheap price of admission ).
