    I am new here and I've been lurking on these forums for a while and why not join?! I love to play the guitar I just got back into playing 7 months ago from an almost 5 year hiatus. Right now, I have an epiphone g400 pro with seymour duncan sh-5 in the bridge and sh-1n in the neck with a blackstar ht40. I haven't got any pedals yet i'm thinking of getting the bogner ecstasy red or the wampler plexi drive. My dream guitar is a gibson les paul which I am planning to get a little later. Here's a pic of my set up right now

    I used to eat in a place around there...cant remember the name of it, but they had great breakfast!
    Also, I was just in Good Guys music over on Kapahulu St. around Christmas. Great little shop.

    good guys is all right i've only been there once. I usually go to Dan's guitars in beretania. They are my favorite shop, they have a lot of boutique stuff and the customer service is awesome. The owner Dan is a great guy!

    That was my FIRST stop that day!
    I've known Dan for years. We had a great sit down discussing his rig
    when I was there. Also had one the amps he uses set up in the playing room.
    Two words…PRS and Friedman!
    (Is PRS a word? :) )

    I bought my first electric guitar at Dan's back in 2003 when I was in 7th grade. I was still a beginner at the time and have been playing acoustic for like a year. There was like this cheap epiphone strat style guitar for like 180 bucks and being young I only had 90 dollars in my pocket. He gave it to me for 90 bucks! I will always remember that. I tried the friedman at Dan's and it was absolutely INSANE!
