Greetings from the Motorcity. I've been surfing Harmony Central for years and years and just kind of happened across this site last night after I bought a guitar from a fellow gear page patron. Like many of you I suffer from a bank account crippling disease that requires me from time to time to buy lots of cool guitars, amps, and effects. It's a sickness that I have learned is more of an addiction. I'm not a collector of gear though ~ everything I have gets beat up and battered on a regular basis. I think pretty guitars look good if you're into that kind of thing but I buy them to play them. Nothing sounds as good to me as a tortured strat or beat up Les Paul screaming through an old tube amp. I play guitar in a band called Nevaeh (www.nevaehrocks.com) which allows me to get buzzed, show off my stuff, and get some extra $'s which isn't all bad. I have a side business building road cases and pedalboards (I'm not a dealer - I'm a custom manufacturer) www.custompedalboard.com so if you're ever in the market check me out. During most of my boring day I pretend to pay attention at work as an engineer ~ its cool work but kind of boring at time.
