I just joined 'cos I have been periodically reading posts, and thought it was about time I actually got off my backside and took part.
I cannot admit to being a competent musician by any stretch, nor having built my own guitar - however I just love guitars, noise and the way they tap into the modern world as we know it (sounds really hammy). I read recently that music links to our inner psyche more than any other communication form - it is universal.
So I have spent my entire adult life working with music (I am now 55) whether in retail, being in bands or music publishing (which became my career).
I own an absolute beat up 1978 Precision Bass (genuine relicing from my days on the road - but still sounds and plays incredible) that I bought in 1990, and a recent MIM Jaguar - I just love 'em !!!
Not sure how much I can offer on a technical basis - perhaps some misguided enthusiasm. However I am hoping to gain some mechanical insights into how guitars really treat their owners, and what really gets us excited !
