    Is he really Dan Erlewine? or some other Guitar Savant?
    sa-vant noun - a learned person, especially a distinguished scientist.

    Anyway keep up the good work.

    When you luck into a good thing, it's important not to run the good thing off by prying into the good thing's privacy.

    Leave Peegoo to be Peegoo.

    I actually know Peegoo, and can vouch that he is not Dan. I met him at one of my gigs years ago, and became friends with him. Without giving up his identity and to add to the mystery, I can tell you that he is a big music fan, big supporter of the local acts, beyond knowledgeable about the music, history of it, and the gear involved in making it, plays in cool bands with cool names, and makes cool recordings. A fine fella to have a pint with as well. We should all aspire to be so well rounded.

    I have no dog in this fight, but playing devil’s advocate, have you ever seen them in the same place at the same time?

    I've enjoyed reading Peegoo's posts for many years, albeit in another place. :)

    @Peegoo kindly adjusted my avatar for me in order to prevent disease. That's just the kind of guy he is. I can imagine pint-sharing might go rather well indeed.

    I've known Peegoo as a friend on another now-defunct forum for many years. He's not Dan Erlewine, but he has vast knowledge about guitars. He's always been really generous about sharing his expertise and this forum's lucky to have him here.

    Ha! No. We’ve been band mates briefly. He’s a good man.

    isn't this the one place in the world where we can be whoever we say we are?

    I don't want to disappoint anybody, or reveal too much, but if you ever meet me in person I may not look exactly like the picture I have posted in my profile...

    I had to look up peegoo (Urban Dictionary):

    Peegoo
    1. A person who builds guitars.
    2. Chinese for "butt."

    I’m guessing #1?

    The first time Peegoo got my attention, was on the Squier '51 modders forum, over 12 years ago.

    He had developed the coolest '51 pickguard design, ever. I decided right then, I wanted to be just like him.

    I failed. :^)

    When it comes to Peegoo or any other on this forum, I kindly remind you of a song by the great songwriter Hank Williams - 'Mind your own business and you won't have time to be minding mine.'
