    My avatar is the Aeroflot logo.

    I'm of Russian descent (my dad was born in Russia, me in Canada) and I'm a pilot of FPV R/C model airplanes.

    Mine is from one of the recording sessions from the 2nd CD released with mine and my pop's quartet, Sundad. The engineer (Buck Brundage) snapped it. He has since passed, he was an amazing recording engineer/producer (especially for guitar). We have struggled to release a 3rd CD/Album because we cannot find someone that we like as much (or even close).

    Mine is just a doctored up random sketch of a washtub bass I found on the internet. I don’t actually play the a tub, my bass player does. It has become what we are known for when we play.

    Mine's the sound generator of a Moog Slim Phatty. I didn't keep the synth -- heat build-up in the "slim" casing made tuning unstable -- but I still like the lighted knob collars, which tell you at a glance where a parameter is set for the current preset. Since joining TDPRI I've gotten better on guitar than keyboard, but my avatar is still better-looking than I am, so I keep it.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a Danny Lyon photo. Well known photographer in those circles. Part of the "New Journalism" in the 60's, Robert Frank, et al.

    Lyons book, the Bikeriders (from which I think that photo comes from) was published by Magnum, the big photo agency. I think its available on Amazon.

    You ought to get out more Stringy - unless, of course, you're afraid someone might think you're pronouncing words with a French accent...

    Just one of me with my first Tele, think it was a '76 or '77, bought it in about 1979/80 from Bruce Miller's in Aberdeen. Traded that Tele against a 1976 Bi-Centennial Firebird which I subsequently traded for the '75 Tele I still own. The red hair in the photo is also long gone, still got hair, just not red any more!

    My much loved 2012 AV '64. Best guitar purchase I've ever made.

    Mine is my first tube amp; it’s a Univox U-1246B bass head I bought right after joining my first band. We were into grunge and I perceived weird old tube amps as being rock-n-roll cool. It was $50 in the classified ads and worked, but was missing most of the knobs. Four inputs, two volumes, bass-mid-treble-presence.

    (Dude! Just like an old Marshall!)

    It’s alleged output was 60 watts from its mismatched pair of 6L6 tubes, and I’d call it a weak 60 watts in retrospect but it sounded pretty cool if you slammed it with a humbucker, jumpered the channels and dimed everything but the bass knob.

    I had a Scholz Power Soak attenuator on long-term loan and I’d use that backed off a few clicks, with an open-backed Fender 4 x 12 cab. Worked great for a year or two and then got pretty unreliable so I moved on. It powered a monitor for awhile in our practice space, spent some years as a doorstop, came out of mothballs briefly when I took up bass and then got sold on Craigslist when I decided I only liked it cranked wide open, which rattled the ductwork in our house.

    My avatar? As virtually everyone who ever posted here can tell, it a shot of McKinley Morganfield, aka Muddy Waters, the greatest of all electric Blues players and one of the five most influential Telecaster players of all time. OK?

    :cool::D:lol::)

    Well, my avatar is the symbol for "danger: non-ionizing radiation". I prefer it to mean "Danger: Lots of BS in the air."

    Cool photographer. Lots and lots of photos of bikers, civil rights movement people, farm workers, falling down buildings, and much more. This is probably his most famous shot:

    I think it's just flesh-tone. At least, its his flesh's tone.
