    Heard about this place for the last couple years but I haven't been buying any equipment so I had not registered.

    I've been a Blues hound since I was 8 yrs old.(Albert King, Hubert Sumlin, Guitar Slim, Otis Rush).
    I dont have much equipment at the moment but in the mid-late 90s I used to buy(broker), fix up 40's through 60's Silvertones, Kay, and Harmonys. I easily owned 60-70 at one time. Pretty much all rare hard to find items so if anybody has any questions on these I might be able to help. Fact is I know of atleast 10 of my guitars on Gbase right now came out of my collection.

    Been 10 years since I bought a guitar or amp. However I have decided while I cant get back what I had I will now be choosey in getting a couple pieces of nice equipment.

    Since I dealt in cheap guitars I had a couple pieces of modern cheap-ish items I am wanting to re-purchase or upgrade.
    Might be hard to believe but one of the better sounding guitars I owned was a epi 56 LP. Used to play out with it alot. Great tone(semi-reliable)

    Now I am considering buying a Gibson 56 RI LP. I enjoyed the Epi so much I may buy the gibby but I have questions for those that have palyed them first because they are not cheap.

    Also I owned a really good Blues Junior for playing at home and small clubs.
    Now I am planning on buying another one but doing a bunch of BillM mods in my spare time.
    Any body familiar with these few things feel free to chime in.

    I think I am going to like it here
