Guitarist, motorcyclist, masters bodybuilding competitor, father, husband, too many pets, too much music gear.
I have been playing on and off since 1978, I have owned over 40 guitars and probably 20 amps during this time. I started with a mid 70's Ventura Copy of a 335, it is still the prettiest knock off of a 335 I have ever seen, even though the tone was only passable. I have had $100 pieces of junk and $100 hidden gems along side some $2000 beauties. Everything that plays is worth something to someone. Currently trying to balance life, work, and still find time to play. I have a great setup right now that is sitting idle too much. I am hoping that will change.
