    Just found this site on accident when I was looking for a pedal.
    Liked the looks of it, and decided to stay.

    My name is John, I'm from Illinois. Played a bunch of guitar in my teens and then set it off to the side. Getting back into it, and some of the more technical aspects of sound and tone.

    My main axe is an Epiphone G-400. We replaced the electricals with the Retro-SG set up from Guitar works and upgraded the pick ups with Seymour Duncan '59s. We nicknamed it the '59 Gibsophone SG-400 project.
    Looking forward to mixing it up on the boards with the rest of the members.
