Long time lurker, now I am in the asylum too. Playing fender guitars is a HOBBY. Not going to be a band member, but I wouldn't mind seeing one of my amp builds get played by a deserving artist on stage. I have 3 sons, 2 play guitar and the other is married to my daughter who is a music teacher with a masters degree in music education so he is a musician by proxy. We are collectively not good enough to seek fame but that is not what we seek. We seek a challenge and boy oh boy is trying to copy the styles and tones of the wide variety of musicians we like a challenge. I have a US Telecaster, a US Strat and a Fender Heartfield RR58 to satisfy my set neck, short scale, double humbucker jones without having to lift and lug an LP around. I am O T Hill after all and I know my limitations. Looking forward to a long and happy stay here with the brethren.
