    i mean, within a coupla years.
    Just curious.
    Some of us are cagey about their age, others are right up front.
    I notice a few young people, very few, and a lot of grizzled veteran guitar lovers.
    What do y’all think?
    I’d guess 45.
    Just guessin’, though.

    The average age of members might be as low as 45, but if weighted by the number of posts I bet it is over 60.

    I’d guess over 50.

    It would be interesting to see a weighted age though, number of posts and age. A 60 year old with 100 posts and a 20 year old with 1,000 posts averages out to 23.66 years old.

    That might be more telling than just using a total age divided by all members. Harder to do for sure though...

    Ha! I'm 65, my wife thinks developmentally I'm like a 4th grade boy:)

    I'd guess average age to be about 50~

    Guess I'm a youngster here at 42. The body feels like 80 some days.

    I'm 43 and it seems like most posters are a lot older than me, but then I am a late bloomer.

    I think that somewhere in your mid-50s the maturity clock changes directions. I suspect that most here are about at that point.

    I joined the forum when I was fifteen, so I reckon I brought the age down just a touch. I'd have a guess at the average age being around 45-50.

    I'd guess half way between codger and curmudgeon, assuming that codger is old and curmudgeon is just stuck-in-your-ways.
