Hey all! I was recently banned from the "Gear Talk" Facebook page for posting something one of the admins disagreed with (I think? I wasn't actually told why I got banned). Anyway, someone else who'd been ousted for similar reasons suggested I check out TGP, and it already looks MUCH better! Anyway, my name is Evan, I'm a writer/editor living north of Chicago with my kickass wife and our brand-new baby. I play guitar and bass, dabble in lap steel, mandolin, banjo and harmonica, I love modding cheap guitars, and I recently sold off my entire pedalboard and started from scratch and am dying to talk about some of the new acquisitions. I play rock and powerpop, currently am playing guitar with Daniel Wade (www.danielwadesongs.com) and am in the process of starting up something of my own. Looking forward to meeting all of you!
