    Been out of playing for about 15 years. Started a family & you know the deal. Sold all my gear and stopped playing for about 15 years.

    Here is what I had back then:

    Guitars:
    '72 Blonde DEAD MINT
    '96 SB Plus Deluxe. I regret selling that guitar to this day. Is was truly a great instrument
    Stomp boxes out the wahzoo!

    Current Day:

    Now have a '00 A.S. black tele
    Silvertone Amp-in-case short scale model

    Amps and other gear
    Custom Deluxe reverb amp by D-Lab
    '65 Band Master
    Premier 90 Reverb tank
    Ron Sound Foxy Axis pedal

    My other hobby obsession is old Ford hotrods. Currently working on a '28 AV8roadster project.

    My day gig is an elementary principal.

    Thanks all. Looking forward to some great discussion.

    Thanks Geardog. Feels good to be back.

    My 6 year old son is showing an interest and is playing a Silvertone Amp-is-case and Squire strat.

    Welcome Custom. Your current day setup is a very non-shabby collection.

    Welcome
    When you are a kid you have a hard time thinking you have a cool principal that plays guitar and works on hot rods. I wonder if my principal did those things? Then again I really can't picture Sister Dominica playing a 72 dead mint blonde.
