I've read and learned here for years--thanks for all the awesome content, from discussions of technical details, to the sagas of restorations or conversions, to the occasional epic Burst safari story, to links to examples of good playing. So let me step out of the shadows and belly up to the bar... I've played guitar for about 20 years, slowly progressing on that never-finished journey but enjoying every note. I am also a songwriter and singer. I love guitars of all types, though focusing mostly on Gibsons and Fenders in electrics. I have put a couple of Teles and Strats together from parts, and learned to do some repairs and solder electronics. My LP collection is certainly modest, but I do know enough to post pics, and proudly! Beers all around.
