My first ever guitar forum !
I'm 64 and been tinkering since I was 12 . The usual stuff as a school kid with a cheap Chinese acoustic then a copy Stratocaster .
Was given a semi hollow epiphone and got conned into a 9 piece band with my dad at 16 , all the others were professional RAF musicians .
Had a finger crushed 20 years ago which curtailed playing for many years then had a stroke 10 years ago that has affected parts of my memories.
Currently have 5 guitars,
A 12 string electro acoustic, a Tanglewood 4 string bass , A fender Stratocaster copy , An Epiphone 250 that is 50 years old , a Les Paul copy that I aquired a month ago that requires cleaning and modifications and a proper set up .
Run through a Marshall mgfx50 , toneworks effects processor and a Behringer Hellbabe wah pedal .
