    Hi,

    A 45 year old guy in the UK - new to the forum. So, at 40 I had my mid-life crisis, so it was either a fast car, Mistress :crazyguy or learn to play the guitar!

    You guessed it; I went for the guitar. After 5 years of playing and taking lessons, I reckon I'm just about okay. I play guitar to deal with all the crapp I have at work - it takes all my stress away. I play because I 'love' the feeling you get when you rip a lick and think WoW that sounded great!

    I'm really getting into my 'tones' now I have the basics in place. I pulled out the pups in my HSS Strat and went for Bare Knuckle pickups - I did the same with my Tele.

    I went crazy and bought an ENGL 4x12 cab and head and just love jamming with some 'crazy' mates of mine.

    Now looking for the ultimate my tone :D

    All the best,

    Monty
