Hello to everybody at The Gear Page!! I suppose I'm one of the older members at 46 years old. I've been playing since the late seventies. Though I stopped for some 20 years. I picked up the guitar again about 5 years ago when I purchased a guitar for my son. I fell in love again with the guitar now that I'm an old er I have more money. So I've made the following purchases. A 2003 Les Paul 59 RI R9. I also have a pair of original 59 PAF's I'd like to put into it. A ruokangas Duke, one of the finest guitars I've ever owned. A New Orleans Voodoo. Love it!! And a McNaught single cut. I've also been playing with some cool amps: A Cornford hellcat 15 (I've had power scaling installed) A Victoria 35310 Though I like the hellcat I've decided to replace it with a Stephenson 30 watt and I've ordered a Louis Electric LE M45. I think this site is a wonderful resource and a great place to get input from people from all walks of life and musical style.
