Well I've been a new member for a few weeks now, so I should probably say Hi. I live up here in the pacific Northwest in Arlington, Wa. which is about 50 miles north of Seattle, I'm 50 years old and have been playing guitar since the age of 14. I love everything about guitars, amps, gear and just music in general.I'm glad to be a member of this site, and I'am impressed with all the great feedback that I've been given on some of the threads I've posted. It's great to hear from people who are from different area's in the country, and since I'm going to be buying some new gear for a recording project, it helps to know what's hot and what's not.It's also nice to find others with the same passion for the art as I have.
