    After playing acoustic guitar since young I (finally) went electric a few years ago ...
    Always been a fan of Clarence White - so I got a b-bender Tele which was soon joined by another one, as it happens ...

    One of my other passions are old Epiphone instruments and their history - I run The Unofficial NY Epiphone Registry website. So you are welcome to contact me regarding all things old Epi ...

    Cheers,
    Felix

    Welcome to the "Forum"! Clarence got me wanting a B-Bender in 1969. Saw the Byrd's around 30 times? I did not buy an Electric for 40 plus years. I have since had too many Custom Builds (By Me) in 10 years. That is a Rolling B-Bender on my Guitar. I play along with him and try to keep up. Such a great loss and at 29 years old. RIP Clarence! Cool Website you Run!

    Greetings,
    For someone who just went electric a “few years ago” that’s quite a collection! By saying “our” are you referring to a band? Tell us about it.

    What is that case-looking thing, full of wires going in/out, under the mic and above that massive spaceship of a pedal board?

    Nice collection, welcome to the forum!

    You're very lucky to have a significant other that not only supports your hobby, but that goes along with it and plays with you!

    Another member in Switzerland here. I’m now in the hub that is Olten. Soon to move to the canton of Fribourg. Maybe one day we can make acquaintance and listen to live music again, while discussing guitar stuff and other things. Cheers!
