    Hi all, just started playing the guitar in earnest the last couple of years after 30 years of noodling on mostly an acoustic. Got a Am. Dlx. Ash Strat.:AOK, had a blues jr.:mad:(good dirty sound but I didn't like the clean - apparently I'm the only one), now a Vox AC15 :YinYang(love the tremolo and clean, but dirty sound is not quite there), and also a Roland JC77 :cool:(love the Chorus). I play them in stereo. Got a Boss DD-6 :cool:(love delay - any Steve Hillage fans out there?). Fulltone Choral Flange, Tech 21 GT2 (great marshal sound, OK mesa boogie, and weak Fender), and a Boss PS-5 (interesting but not what I expected - love the tremolo bombs and harmony fifths). Next toy will be a deja-vibe, wah, looper, another distortion pedal, compressor, ebow, fuzz box or better yet a Demeter stereo tremolo:drool. As you see I love effects. Just playing around with my sound until I find it.

    Jam with a work buddy but think I'll get some lessons too. Just having fun again now that the kids are older.

    Anyhow, have really enjoyed this site and look forward to years of playing guitar and visiting with other guitar nuts.
