    Hi, everyone

    I've been lurking around this forum for a while, so thought it was about time for me to introduce myself. Sadly, my collection isn't quite as extensive as some of the folks on here (Yes, I'm extremely jealous!), but my GAS is serious enough to ensure that there MIGHT be a purchase from the 2017 range.

    Anyway, it's great to "kind of" meet you all. Here's a picture of my two current babies (2016 Standard, 2012 Studio Faded)

    All the best

    Dave

    Thanks, dsmcl77. (I didn't think the Liverpool jokes would start this early ...) :D

    I didn't even started...

    I use to work with one of your fellow citizen when I was working in London, really liked the guy, we had good friendly fights about football, i was an Arsenal fan and it was late 90's.

    I never understood why he had this Michael Owen poster behind his... toilet seat, though. Must be a scouser thing ;-)

    Yep, I think football's actually the official religion in Liverpool (which kind of makes me an atheist, I suppose ... :) )

    Hi Dave. Liverpool is where I was born, spent my first 6 years in Bootle. Welcome to the forum, it's a great place to read and post.

    Kirkdale originally. Married a Bootle girl. Moved to Mossley Hill when we got married. Moved down to Norwich on promotion in my day job in January 1987. Me and the Bootle girl are still together, 45 years after meeting up, and just over 42 years of marriage! My avatar is Anne on our wedding day.

    She won't let me buy any more Les Pauls, but then I have got 5 already so I've run out of reasons to get one! :laugh2:

    This is a great place. Lots of everything. Great information, lots of good people, some lunatics, usually a massive melt-down every Friday, late-on, by somebody in the 'Backstage' section. The Mods are very fair, reasonable, and even-handed.

    Here's my 5 Les Pauls:

    From left: 1976 Deluxe; 1991 Custom; 2014 Custom Shop '61 reissue SG/LP Standard ; 2009 Custom Shop '57VOS Junior and 2009 '08 Standard (this photo doesn't do justice to the top on the Standard).
