Hey all, I've been meaning to join for a long time and finally got to it. Been a longtime reader here and there are so many helpful folks here, maybe I can pay it forward for all the help ya'll have been to me. I acquired a 52 Hot Rod in black today so I guess I qualify to been a part now. I play Rickenbacker as my "other" guitars. I've been playing since the '60s and took some time off for awhile, but got back into playing seriously about 10 years ago. I play for fun and for friends from time to time. Thanks in advance for all the help this forum has been as a reader and hopefully I can chime in and help others. Paul.
