    I was using Google to find some information on a guitar and seen a thread from here with a fellow crying over his old lady leaving him.One thing lead to another and before the evening was over,the gloves came off,I made a couple of friends and have been hooked ever since.

    I wanted to build a body for a Sonex gibby that a friend gave me... so I could regift him a bolt-on Burst. Didn't get a single response but saw a lot of peeps viewing and thought I'd stick around. I need to be entertained constantly.

    Well... I was actually referred to MLP by colchar, when I'd met him in person by accident in a music shop. I had just acquired my first LP, and being a Norlin era LP Custom, I wasn't sure about the specs. I saw some guy (who ended up being colchar) who looked like he knew what he was talking about when speaking to the sales guy, so I thought I'd approach them and join the conversation. He didn't know the answer to my question, but he'd referred me to MLP, because he said I would definitely find answers there...

    1000+ posts later, here I still am... and loving it! :D

    I joined MLP after getting my 2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded which is my first Les Paul. Initially I googled for tuners but found a wealth of knowledge here on pots, caps, and pickups. Now my LP has locking tuners, GregWinds, and a re-wire kit from RS Guitarworks. This winter I bought my second Gibson which is a VOS 1958 TV Junior. Thanks MLP for feeding my GAS!

    I had joined a few years ago as I had always been a lurker and just wanted an account. It wasn't until last year when I bought some pickups from BB that he told me about this place which I already knew about and I decided to finally start posting here instead of just lurking. But I've seen a lot of stuff on this board, I remember all of the "classics" if you will. :D

    Because as an admitted Epiphone owner the Les Paul forum wanted me to pay to use the back door entrance.:wow: Something to that effect anyway. It was a long time ago.

    I've loved LPs all my life, and found this place often through Google searching questions I had. Most of the people seemed friendly and it seemed like a great community. Joined up after a couple months of lurking and couldn't be happier. Absolutely love it here :dude:

    I joined in September 2008. I will admit, I was a bit of a dumb nut when I joined, but I have made quite a few good friends here. :)

    I think what did it for me, is at the time I was learning about guitars. Not music theory, but I just wanted to learn about the instrument. My Dean VX was my test dummy and I learned a lot about the guitar in all corners with that axe. I took the neck off, learned about pickups and wiring, intonation, neck adjustments (granted I'm not good at setting a guitar up quite yet). But in my quest to learn more about it, I always ran across a thread on MLP, and then I finally joined. I was twelve! :laugh2:
