    Hello all, my name is Benjamin and I thought I'd like to take some time to introduce myself. I'm 13 years old (Even though I turn 14 tomorrow as of posting this) and I've been playing guitar since I was 10. My guitar rig consists of a 2014 Epiphone Les Paul, 2013 Fender Squier Stratocaster, 1986 Fender Stratocaster, 1966 Fender Telecaster (Yes, 1966), Gibson Hummingbird, and Yamaha FG700S. Amp and pedal wise, I use a Fender Champion 100 and Peavey Backstage Plus, Dunlop Cry Baby Was, ZVEX Mastotron, a custom octave, phaser, and tremolo, and pedal box (If you would call it that) which consists of delay, reverb, chorus, overdrive, treble boost, and buffer that my dad's friend made for me. Moving past gear, I'll talk about my top 10 favorite guitarists which are Randy Rhoads, Yngwie Malmsteen, Alex Lifeson, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Howe, Brian May, Jimi Hendrix, Slash, Steve Hackett, and Tony Iommi. I also am a primarily self taught drummer and somewhat of a bassist. In regards to what music I listen to, I listen to Rush, Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Yngwie Malmsteen, The Beatles, Van Halen, Queen, Michael Jackson, Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Asia, etc. I hope that is good enough for an introduction and I look forward to talking to you guys.
