    Greetings from PA! I joined a while back to bone up on my LP knowledge here and there, and have lurked on and off during that time. Nice place!

    What got me started on the road to guitar? Initial seeds were sown in grade school while dad was listening to my uncle's 3 Dog Night Live: Captured At The Forum, while a 7 or 8 year old moi stared at the open album cover with Michael Allsup's SG. But I was too young and remember only lasting a month with lessons.

    What rekindled things? Getting a boom box with a cassette deck for Christmas in 9th grade, and hearing Steve Miller's Rockin' Me hit #1 on Casey Kasem's Top 40 later that weekend. Borrowed my uncle's acoustic and started lessons the next week, and haven't looked back.

    Current Lesters...
    • Have a Vintage Sunburst 1996 LP Std; replaced the 490R and 498T with Dimarzio's Eric Johnson Humbuckers, which sound really good with my MJM London Fuzz.
    • Recently stumbled upon a lightly used 2013 Signature T in VSB. Figured I'd man up and fight through the discomfort/struggle of the Sig T's wide-flat. Put nickle covers over the 57 Classics (for aesthetics). The 'T' truss rod cover doesn't bother me, so I left it alone. I know, sacrilege!
    I'm planning on participating going forward, instead of just absorbing like the proverbial fly on the wall. Looking forward to a good long ride here!

    Dave

    Haha, that's more than likely where I came up with that too, Darrell. Without realizing it, of course. Call off the lawyer's man, I promise to cease and desist. :Ohno:

    Thanks Darrell!!

    I've been really busy and haven't been here for a while. That post was the first thing I read when I logged on and I'm still laughing. Thanks Darrell, I needed that this morning.:cheers2:
