    Hi, I'm new to the forum, looks like a nice place to hang around. I've been playing as a hobby on and off for about 25 years. I have some good gear, but not a lot of time to play between a regular job and chores around the "ranch". But I do what I can. I recently took up bass playing for a change of pace.:JAM

    Here's a list if you're interested, I'll find the pictures thread and put up some photos. Looking forward to chatting with you folks!
    Cheers!:drink

    Welcome from another Wisconsonite in the Fox Valley area. Be careful, this place has caused me to buy gear that is much more deserving of a better player. Enjoy!

    I hold no grudges against you folks from south of the border. Twelve years ago I lived in Richmond, IL. McHenry County, practically in Wisconsin!;)

    Happy to hear that. I worked in Janesville for a while, and lots of folks were pretty vocal about their dislike of the flatlanders (Illinois residents, not the band). I'm eleven miles from the border. I cross over to purchase those fine New Glarus products.
