    Over the past 26 years of my career, I have been addressed as Mr. Bob by a large number of "Clients", which usually comes out sounding like Meester Baub. A few years back when registering for a free mail account, mrbob was taken, but it suggested mrbob135 as an option, so I went with it. Still am, apparently.

    I haven't got a heart....


    Licensed tin whacker and since Tinman was taken on the first forum I ever subscribed to I added a couple random numbers "46" and have used that handle online ever since.

    I made sure to sign up early on the first day of the TDPRI so I could just use my (very common) first name and be done with it.

    I just keep wondering when you will become a law.

    The first 2 or 3 that I submitted were already taken, so I used my #1 guitar at the time. :neutral:

    Mine is just what I use for everything, but when I first used it for a psn account it was because my favorite band is the Beatles, and at the time my favorite thing to do was Lego.

    If you heard me play, you wouldn't ask. 78 because there are apparently 77 other forum members with tin ears and ten thumbs. Go figure.

    I have this username for just about every forum I participate in.
    It's the first 2 letters of my middle name (which I go by), combined with my last name.
    One day I found out that it's also in the online urban dictionary as a slang term for someone that's going off the deep end.

    Pretty much fits. :lol:

    I was working a job in Pearl City, Hawaii a few years ago. On my first trip, the others with me wanted breakfast and stopped at a Burger Whopper on Kam highway not far from the job. The trash can swinging doors had Mahalo etched in big letters, so I naturally assumed Mahalo meant trash in Hawaiian. Took a couple times thinking someone was calling me trash before I figured out I was wrong.

    My handle is a combination of my birthdate, my early childhood dreams, my scholastic achievements, and most of my history.

    It was late, I was registering on a forum and found my usual name was taken. As I sat there trying to figure out a new name my buddy Desmo wandered into the room and the rest is history.

    That's awesome!

    Although I don't understand how we can have KISS Legos but not Beatles...

    No, it got stripped in the late '70s. The previous owner(s) had spray-bombed it Day-Glo Lime and black over top the original Dakota Red.
    The finish was cracking and flaking a lot and natural finish guitars was the thing to do in the '70s, so I stripped it and gave it a natural finish.
