Hey guys! So I've gleaned a lot of knowledge from this website about various things over the years. It seems you TDPRI guys have something to say about just about any music related search I do! But, I am a musician with a long history of playing bass and occasionally guitar, keys, vocals, or drums, along with some other noise making devices I won't bore you with my list of basses (I've got a few, and they're all pretty nice!) since I know you're mostly 6-stringers but if you want to know, just ask. As for guitars: Gretsch G3161 (Orange, added a Bigsby and Sperzel tuners) Gibson Les Paul Classic (black with black hardware - odd story) Samick "Artist Series" tele copy (black w/ black pickguard, maple neck and gold hardware; swapped bridge pickup to a Duncan Jerry Donahue) National acoustic (1947 and in great shape!) I keep a Peavey Classic 30 around but might update that at some point. It suits my needs but not my wants. I do a lot more home recording than gigging these days but I wouldn't pass up the opportunity if it came up, and it usually does. I've played many gigs in the past but have found my way in to a quieter life now. Oh, and for what it's worth, I live in North Dakota and work in the oilfield, but I'm from the Southwest. Looking forward to catching up more with you guys!
