Hi, my name is Kazik, and I come from Falkirk, Scotland. I am 70 years old, and have been playing for 2 periods in my life. The first was between the ages of 15 and 24, during the 1960's when I was playing lead guitar in various bands culminating in a really good band with a record contract (unfulfilled as the manager wanted us to do pop material), so went to Germany where we played for 1 year. The band folded in 1971. There was a period in between when being unable to get another band good enough together I made a career in Government. The second period started 6 years after I retired. I now play in a blues band and am thoroughly enjoying life. My gear has evolved in the last 4 years, and I'm currently playing a Fender Special Strat, and a recently acquired Fender MIM Telecaster. I play these through a Fender Deluxe Reverb Head with 2 Orange PPC 12 inch cabs I also occasionally use a Vox Pathfinder. I also have a pedalboard with various pedals. The tele I recently got has been pro set up and plays like a dream.
