    I play in a couple of bands here in Southwest Ohio / Northern Kentucky. I'm 54 years old and just put out my first solo record in '06! In terms of guitars, I've got most of the major food groups covered - Teles, 335, ObG Les Paul, Ric 12, Dano, a Ric and a Fender Lap Steel and a Yairi flat top. As of a couple of days ago, I'm the proud owner of a K-Line S. I'm a small amp kind of guy - Stephens 18 watt Bluesbreaker clone, Gibson GA-6, Trace Vellocette and a Princeton Reverb. I'm a sucker for the classics.

    Thanks everybody. I'm not really a forum guy, but I'm really impressed with how civil and positive everybody is here. I mean we're all here 'cause we have an unending romance with these pieces of lumber glued and bolted together. Right? Try telling your neighbor in your cube farm that your guitar has a soul and he how he reacts!

    And yes, Hamilton continues to be a fertile ground for young monster players.

    Doublee, your dad isn't a trumpet professor, is he?
