    Default Hello from Virginia

    New guy here, checking out the place.

    My story is like many others - it was a dark and ... oh, wrong place.

    I started playing guitar when I was a teenager back in the mid-70s and played through the early-80s and then real life got in the way and I tucked my guitar under my bed. Now my kids are grown and have moved out, the house is paid for and I've picked up the guitar again.

    I have slight arthritis setting in on my right wrist and my fingers are stiff but I'm giving it my best try as my love of music is still strong.

    Equipment - my oldest son pre-inherited my 1972 Gibson Les Paul a couple of years ago. I found a MIM Strat that was just what I had always wanted and bought it. And I didn't like it. So it was returned and I got an American Deluxe Strat instead. Then came a '56 AVRI, a MIM 50s Classic Series, a Hello Kitty Strat , and a DiPinto Galaxie IV. Then I discovered PRS - which I never thought I would be able to afford - and now I've got an S2 Vela and a Core 30th Anniversary Custom 24.

    I'm still looking for a decent amp.

    I'm also hoping to find enough talent somewhere to justify having these nice guitars but I'm coming up short on that so far.

    and Peace Out.
