Yo from Philly! I Just got back into playing this past year after 15-20 years of inactivity and I went a bit crazy buying gear. In the past year, I bought an American Special Tele, a Les Paul Studio Deluxe, and a MIM strat, topped off with a Vox AC15 and fender Champion 600. There are so many resources available today that I didn't have the last time around back in high school... If only I had the Youtube, an iPod Touch, guitar forums, and Amplitube/iRig back then!
