Right. So I'm originally from New York City, now living in Shanghai. Got my LP Standard new in '91, though I have not played much in the last 10+ years. But things change. and now I have opportunity to pursue things I want to rather than doing the things I have to. Unfortunately, all my gear is currently 8000 miles away.
If anyone cares, my handle (laowai) is just Chinese pinyin for 'foreigner'. And one question: In a few of the threads on this page, I've seen references like 'another refugee from *___ . What's that about?
Hiyas, welcome to the Forum.
You should grab you a guitar there just to make the most of your time.
The "refugee from Epiphone forum" tag you've seen apparently refers to some Webdrama that's going on over there that is clearly chasing its members away.
