    Haha...I see there are a lot of us here. I live in Avon.

    Hello all!
    Glad to be here. I just stumbled across a link to this board on an unrelated message board. I'm a 36 yo male, married w/kids, working professional. Huge music fan...rock, metal, jazz, classical, bluegrass, punk, hardcore, jambands....I love it all. I've been playing guitar for about 14 years...almost exclusively acoustic until about 6 months ago. A good friend of mine loaned me a beautiful '91 American Strat and I haven't looked back since. Completely and hopelessly obsessed with everything electric guitar related. I'll be purchasing my very first electric within the year. Still having a hard time deciding. I've made at least a half dozen trips to Guitar Center in the past few months. Right now, I have it narrowed down to an '08 American Strat or a Gibson SG. However, my dream guitar has always been a Les Paul. I can't seem to justify the extra $1,000....yet :)

    I'm looking forward to browsing the thousands of posts here and being stimulated by all the guitar pr0n!

    Cheers...Hal

    Welcome! If you want a LP then nothing else comes close (my realized dream below). Cruise over to the Les Paul Forum, read up and contact one of the forum dealers. Between the two forums, there will be lots of gear in your future!

    Cool, welcome to the GAS Page.

    I'm going to Danbury next month, Jen, to catch the rush concert. How cool is that? :dude

    Thanks for the warm welcome all! I've spent quite a bit of time on this board within the last 48 hours. I've got a lot of reading to do.

    What's this about a jam session in Bloomfield?

    August 30th or 31st I am cohosting a jam at the New England Muscle Bike Museum in Bloomfield CT. There's a post around here somewhere about it.

    It's a "Harmonica-Free Zone" so fear not! Thou shalt not be trod upon!

    I live in Mystic, CT but grew-up in North Haven. Good luck in your quest for that "perfect" instrument.
