    Hi from Manchester, England.

    My name is Justin and I've been a reader of the boards for some time as a guest, always been too busy to post but I'm gonna try and make some time!

    Been playing about 8 years and I've gone through my fair share of gear in that time. No doubt it will come up in some of the threads.

    Right now I'm using a 50th Anniversary 2004 American Strat (two tone '54 Sunburst with ash body and maple neck) Pretty much stock with the custom shop '54 pickups. I have installed a Bill Callaham trem inertia block, vintage saddles and a "Gilmour" trem arm but thats it.

    My other main guitar is an all original 1962 Strat, slab board and in fiesta red. It can be a bit of a bugger to play but oh boy, the tone!

    Amp wise I'm using a Fender DRRI and pedal wise I'm running a Dunlop custom Cry Baby (basically I'm using the budda wah circuit board, true bypass, with the dunlop black inductor, although I'm just about to pull the trigger on a red fasel), Demeter Opto Compulator, Fulltone Fulldrive II Mosfet, Ernie Ball 6616 Volume, Boss TU-2 Tuner, T-Rex Replica and powered by the T-Rex Fuel Tank all mounted on a Pedaltrain 2. I've gone from being an effects whore to a pretty basic setup these days but it suits what I do.

    Anyway, nice to come aboard and I look forward to giving my input to the great threads on here.

    Justin.

    Howdy from another Justin.

    That is a pretty killer main guitar, I would love to see some photos of that.

    Great to have you!

    Thanks guys. I did bump into Sir Alex once a couple of years back (nice enough guy) and a few of the players live around here too (used to see Beckham a lot when he lived here). Have to say I'm a New England Patriots fan though more than a soccer fan. :AOK
