    I’ve used this forum for research for years and finally decided to join. Been a Tele man since 1991 and currently have four.

    I also have Rics (360, 620, and 4003) and an early ‘80s Hamer Special. I’ve also had Strats, Gibsons, and other guitars. Funny thing, as great as all of those guitars are/were, I keep coming back to the MIM Standard I’ve (mostly) had since 1991.

    Welcome! I lived in Cincinnati for 13 years and my old pal, Juan Monasterio, who was the bassist for Brainiac, was from Dayton. I never got up there as much as I wanted to, but my kids always enjoyed going to the air museum by Wright Patterson.

    Cool! I was a roadie and studio assistant for Guided by Voices from 2010-2016. Dayton has a lot of great music.

    Welcome to the new guy in SW Ohio!

    Yeah, didn't every Boy Scout in Ohio do a field trip to Wright-Patterson? Good place to be a kid.

    Welcome! I grew up in Marysville, lived in Washington Court House for a while, and visited Dayton many times. I loved to visit Dave Hussong's shop, and bought a couple of vintage guitars from him. Glad you're here.

    Haven't seen Dave Hussong for a couple months, but he's still around.... has a blues radio program on WYSO in Yellow Springs..... The shop he was working out of just moved, and my understanding is that he no longer has a "storefront".
