Just signed up after hearing about this place for years... I'm Dave and have a heavy metal band, Curse of Samsara. I collect Handmade guitars, mostly wild-shaped Neal Moser and BC Rich Guitars. But I also have a few awesome Carvin guitars, including 2 of their fantastic 7-strings (my other guitars are all 6's right now, though I have a Moser 7-string on order) And a Gibson SG Select, and a Stallings USA Dragonslayer, and a Takamine Koa Acoustic, and... I play through an Engl Powerball in CoS, and practice with another rock/metal band with a Carvin V3 combo (that band is still getting of its feet). I also have a sweet Engl Screamer and Carvin Vintage 16 at home for practice. I'm a custom tattoo artist in Philadelphia, and I paint a bunch as well (there's a couple books of my paintings out there through http://www.prestoart.com) I'm married, have 3 cats (Blackie Clawless, Ronnie James Meow, and Elaine Yngwie Meowsteen) and ride bicycles and snowboard. There's me in a nutshell.
