    Hi everyone,

    I found TGP as I was surfing around for info on the Marshall Handwired series of amps. Let me first say, this seems to be a very knowledgable forum. Thanks heavens I found it as I got booted off FDP for asking there if anyone could find me some knobs!!!!!

    A little bit about me:

    Just turned 40
    Been playing 25 years
    Started out as a KISS nut
    Quickly got into the blues
    Moved onto rock'n'roll & rockabilly
    Flirted with country
    Had a go at some jazz - failed dismally
    Dabbled in surf
    Spent years chasing Setzer's tone - never really got the technique
    Now getting back into classic rock thanks to The Darkness et al.
    I'm a jack of all retro styles, but sadly master of none
    Bought heaps of gear and kept most of it
    My wife is very understanding - I'm a lucky guy

    I need help though. I've now got 4 amps after yesterday's purchase of a Marshall 2061 with matching cab. I also have too many guitars. The problem is, I can justify why I need all of them and whenever I resolve to sell some gear, I find a way to avoid doing that and just keep on hoarding!

    At least I have been playing in bands most of the time!!

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Welcome from another fellow aussie. My maths is terrible with guitars too - good at addition and multiplication but not division and subtraction. I fool the wife spacetime continium by selling 2 and buying three.
