Hello...A buddy of mine who I used to play with in a Jersey bar band, recommended I check this forum out. I play drums and guitar in two bands, and as far as guitars go, I'm a big Les Paul Junior fan, although I also play a Gretsch Anniversary, a Rickenbacker 330-12, a Tele, a Strat, an Eastwood Airline Map, and assorted Danelectros and other guitars. I'm getting seriously into boutique stompboxes, and am crazy about the Janglebox I bought recently for my Rick 12. I'll lurk and respond to threads for which I can make a contribution. I really enjoy helping young musicians whenever I can, passing along my years of experience. Also, I used to work for the Guild Guitar Company back in the early 80's, doing artist relations, research & development, customer service and much more. I enjoy relating my experiences at Guild if anyone is interested. I registered a while ago on the Let'sTalkGuild forum and discovered it to be a pretty unfriendly place, with one idiotic jerk in particular who got under my skin. I don't go there anymore. I look forward to hanging out here.
