Thought I'd take the time to say a quick "hello". Been playing guitar for 28 years, have had a Martin HD28, and a '57 re-issue Strat (Fender, obviously) for 26 and 24 years respectively. A month or so ago my wife suggested I buy myself another guitar (I thought about it for a millisecond), to cut a long story short, I came across a '65 Gibson Hummingbird - couldn't, wouldn't... didn't pass it up... love it - I always play a lot... I can't put this thing down. So, all of a sudden I can't get enough, I'm surfing the net checking out what's out there, becoming more obsessed with vintage Gibson acoustics than what's good for me. Anyway... that's how I found this forum, and I love it. I love reading about what you all have to say, - this is a pretty awesome font of knowlege. I live in Perth, West Australia - the most isolated city in the world, but a good one to hang out in. I play guitar incessantly, (especially with the "new" bird), but I'm an advertising photographer by profession, if you feel like it, check me out www.robertsimeon.com I look forward to dropping in again... and again and again.
