    I found this site via Robert's Dolphinstreet site. I first took up guitar in grade school, but dropped it when my parents wouldn't let me have an electric but my cheapo acoustic was like playing a cheese slicer. I also hated the awful books my instructer insisted on using to teach me.

    When I was a senior in high school, I picked up the bass and played that through college and grad school. When I finally got my master's, I sold it. Dumbest move I ever made.

    About four years ago I picked up a used Charvel Model 7 (tele-style with an aftermarket Hot Rails at the bridge), a Peavey Blazer 158, and a Zoom 505II. In May of last year, I saw that Musician's Friend was blowing out their Fender Showmaster Celtic H's for US$249 (original retail was US$899), so I snagged one. It is infinitely better than my Charvel which has now been relegated to "dust collector." In November, I picked up the Vox Valvetronix AD30VT for US$239.

    Right after Christmas I bought Doug Marks' Metal Method course along with the Classic Metal Licks DVD and SRV Style DVD. Good stuff. I've probably learned more from that in less than a year than I have from anything else over my lifetime. I like 80s-era metal and the blues.
    Felt I had to go back and comment on my welcome post. The only piece of equipment that I mentioned that I still own is the Zoom 505II and the only reason I have that is because my son gave it back to me. Honestly, the only thing I miss is the Fender. I wish I hadn't sold it, even though it did net me my Jackson. It was probably the nicest playing guitar I've ever owned. Just wish it had a neck pickup.

    The Model 7 was good in theory but a disaster in practice because of how its original owner mauled it. The Blazer was an amp I bought because I had to have an amp NOW and couldn't wait for the next day when the good music store was actually open. The Vox taught me which amp types I actually like and what effects I needed.
    Axen: Jackson DK2M, Fender Deluxe Nashville Telecaster, ESP LTD Surveyor-414
    Amphen: Jet City JCA22H and JCA12S cab, Acoustic B20
    Effecten: "Thesis 96" Overdrive/Boost (aka DVM OD2), Hardwire DL-8 Digital Delay/Looper, DigiTech Polara Reverb, DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory and CF-7 Chorus Factory, Danelectro CF-1 Cool Cat Fuzz

    Yeah, very nice to read vintage posts!
    The Law of Gravity is nonsense. No such law exists. If I think I float, and you think I float, then it happens.
