    Hi all,
    Glad to be here, I started playing when I was 18 in 1980 and began teaching in 1990. I currently work in IT. I live outside of Dublin.
    Lets get one thing straight from the start, lately I've got serious GAS.

    Fender Stratocaster - 50th Anniversary American Deluxe, 2 tone sunburst /maple, SCN pu's
    Fender Stratocaster - 60th Anniversary, 3 tone sunburst / rosewood, American Vintage pu's

    Gibson Les Paul Standard - 1991 cherry sunburst, Shadow EQ5 Active humbuckers / with push pull coil tap

    Acoustics
    Takemine EN10 - mahogany / cedar
    Takemine FP360S - rosewood / spruce
    Simon and Patrick Pro - mahogany / spruce
    Simon and Patrick - mahogany / cedar
    Seagull S6 - cherry / cedar
    Seagull M6 - mahogany / cedar
    La Patrie classical - rosewood / spruce

    Other
    Squier Strat - cream / rosewood
    Squier P Bass Special - sunburst / rosewood

    all guitars are left handed

    I used to play mostly rock and blues, for the last few years though I've steered towards jazz and fingerstyle ( hence the two latest Heritage acquisitions).
    I've only lately got into the forum scene and have signed up to HC and HOC (Heritage Owners Club). Hi to all the guys from there that are here ,if you know what I mean.
    Once again, glad to be here.
    Regards ...

    Nice collection of guitars, No amps? :D

    Where did you get them all? I was in Dublin year and a half ago, and the couple of guitar shops I found didn't have much at all. Loved it there though and can't wait to go back! :AOK

    Welcome Southpaw! Stayed in Kildare last summer, and toured the country--the trip of my life! Came back engaged to be married. I'll get back as soon as possible.

    Welcome SouthpawGuy! I'm surprised that username was available. Luck of the Irish? ;)

    Anyway, nice collection of guitars. I suggest you stay out of the amp area, or you'll start to try to get an amp for each guitar :D
