    Hi everyone, I just signed up here yesterday, been lurking for a while and have been really enjoying reading the posts in the Pub section.

    I posted now and again over at BAM but I never felt like I fitted in there, i've never owned a PRS (too expensive), but this place seems more like my cup of tea, ie: it's not just all about PRS. I recognise a few names here from BAM though.

    I've been playing guitar (albeit badly) for about 13 years and at the moment just have one guitar, nothing flashy by any means, it's an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, nice translucent blue finish. But y'know how when you find that perfect guitar? As in, everything about it just feels and sounds right for you, everytime you pick it up it's like slipping into a comfortable old pair of shoes? That's how I feel about my epi, it just fits.
    And price-wise when I bought it, although they're looked down on for being a cheaper guitar, not the 'real' thing, it was still expensive for my budget, back in college. And I love it to bits.

    I hate the fact that for the last year or so it's been back home in the UK cos I couldn't bring it out here to the US with me, I really miss it.

    Anyway, it's nice to meet everyone, I look forward to reading many more cool posts.

    Welcome Laura!

    This is a great bunch of folks. We're glad to have you. As to your gear, what's more important is, what you do with what you have.

    Hiya hen, welcome aboard.
    You'll be pleased to know you're in good company here, lots of really nice peeps always willing to help out and share their knowledge and wisdom in a friendly and relaxed manner (that excludes me and The Pub section btw :p).

    Nothin wrong with your Epi either she looks mighty 'real' to me,
    (I just hope you haven't left her on the windaesill tho, yer nice blue may now be green haha).

    (Psst, 's braw been a hilunner, wi cun scunner aw the rajis wi rab.c glesga patir, n' harly eniwan wid ken whit wir oan a boot likes. 's gallus n'aw rat).
    If you're from Morningside, I do so apologise.:D

    oy, i'd be stricken to be separated from my axe for so long. shame you canna bring it.

    you ought to buy one here, take back home and sell it, and pay for another term or two of school. do that for the next few years and you might even have enough dough to buy yourself a nice companion for your epi.

    welcome. now git back to studyin', lass.:rotflmao
