    Hey guys,

    Been reading TGP for years, but never joined, or if I did Ive long lost my login.
    Been playing for 20 years or so. Started out my first job as a guitar salesman (boy really) in Colorado. Been a gear snob ever since.
    Got a Larrivee, Fender, Heritage, and 2 Suhrs at the moment.
    Two Rock, and a 5e3 clone I built myself.
    more pedals than I care to list.

    anyways... hello!

    Welcome! (back?)
    I've lived in Tucson my whole life — minus a few years relocation to the Seattle area.
    I missed 100 degree temperature and the Southwest desert, and moved right back. I love it here.

    That's a nice collection of guitars and amps you have.
    Rainbow guitars is a cool store, but I'm sure you're more than familiar, haha!

    I used to watch cats play The Chicago Bar all the time. Some good blues players used to hang there. I've probably seen you play.
