I've been playing guitar for 25 years. My gear consists of a couple of Strats and a couple of Teles plus a Fender Marauder and a Squier bass plus a few other guitars. I use an old Park amp plus a little Peavey bass amp, run through my Digitech RP360, which is a nice little effects processor/pedal. I live in the midwestern US and I'm into mostly alternative rock along with some old school metal. I am not a fan of country other than some old school country singers and some alt-country bands. I expect to learn a lot from this forum.
