    Just registered today. I’m not a big forum guy, though I have been a member of another guitar related one since 2001. I’m branching out in my never ending quest for info on all guitar related stuff.

    A little about me, I’ve been playing since I was about 11 or 12 and have way too much stuff for how often I play. I love working on my guitars and amps, mostly upgrades on guitars and service stuff on amps. I love to solder. Should have used that as my username! Speaking of that, Patton is my middle name.

    I’m a big Fender guy but own plenty other brands too. I have three guitars I would never, ever part with. A 1982 Kalamazoo made Epiphone Spirit, a 2017 Rainsong carbon fiber acoustic/electric and a 1985 Japanese Squier Jazz Bass I bought in 86’ and used exclusively in my band until we stopped playing out in 92’.

    Amps are mostly Fender with my gems being a minty 68’ Vibro Champ, 68’ Bassman, a nice 76’ Princeton Reverb and my all around best amp, an 83’ Super Champ.

    I’m looking forward to contributing and hearing all of the various opinions here.
