Hello! I've been playing for almost 40 years (you'd think I'd be better by now). I've amassed a pretty good collection of guitars, but last year, while furloughed from my job, I caught the partscaster bug. I've done three so far--two Strats and an Esquire, with a Tele/Strat hybrid and a scalloped-fretboard Strat (I've never played one) in the works. They have, or will, take varying amounts of work, but these forums have been a huge help to me. So I thought I'd join in and maybe share some of the things that I've learned along the way. I'm retiring next month and plan on continuing with the partscasters as long as I can make it work financially. Might have to sell off some of my "real" guitars to keep it going. I look forward to soaking up the knowledge around here and maybe sharing some of my own.
