    Hey there,

    I've been browsing for a while - mostly looking to pilfer some technical knowledge. Since I've found myself stumped on wiring, I figured it's time to properly jump into the waters. So.... here's a summery of my gear (that FAR exceeds the ability to play)

    J5 Custom (12-string headstock) that I'm currently chopping up into my own specs.
    Natural body thin line tele
    butterscotch squire tele
    CV strat (hate to say it, but probably my best playing guitar - until I finish my J5 makeover)
    US Satin finish strat
    Gibson Silverburst LP
    Gretsch Parlor
    Luna acoustic
    Washburn 12-string acoustic
    Breedlove acoustic
    Guild acoustic

    Vox AC-15
    Fender Eighty-Five
    couple little 10 watts - blackstar / vox
    Fractal Axe-FX II

    I haven't been a life long player and I've never been in a band. I just sit in my music room or my front lawn, entertain myself and annoy my neighbors.

    I'm not sure if I'll have much to contribute, but let's see how this plays out.

    Cheers!

    Here's a couple of snapshots

    Well, welcome. I've done all the things you say you haven't done but I haven't got a wall of guitars like that.

    Probably picked the best forum to start in so enjoy it. :)

    Forum Romanum!

    For centuries the Forum was the center of day-to-day life in Rome: the site of triumphal processions and elections; the venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches; and the nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city's great men. The teeming heart of ancient Rome, it has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history. Located in the small valley between the Palatine and Capitoline Hills, the Forum today is a sprawling ruin of architectural fragments and intermittent archaeological excavations attracting 4.5 million or more sightseers yearly.

    However, Thursday night was reserved for guitarist where important subjects such as optimum string height at the 12 fret would be discussed with passion and vigor into the early hours whilst drinking copious amounts of wine and listening to the tunes of Muddius Waterus!
