I've already gained a lot of useful info on this site, and I figured it's time to join. I live in rural Montana and mostly just play for fun these days, although I'd love to start playing out more. Some of my favorite players are Rory Gallagher (I know, not an LP guy), Adrian Smith, Brian Robertson, and Steve Clark (especially on the early albums), and the trio of Hughie Thomasson, Billy Jones, and Freddie Salem. I'm a big fan of 70s hard rock, raunchy blues rock, and NWOBHM, but my interests are pretty broad. You might catch me listening to Byzantine Chant, '70s Country, or Renaissance music.

Here's the stable at the moment. I'm looking to add an original '70s Strat (this one is a Classic Series). This is my third, and favorite, 2009 LP Traditional Pro (yes, by some strange coincidence, every Les Paul that I came across that I both liked and could afford at the time has been a 2009 Les Paul Trad Pro):

Welcome!

nice gear! What’s the bottom amp?
That's a Vintage Modern 2266C. It's a fantastic amp! Although I have to say that if the Studio Classic JCM800 had been around, I don't know if I would have bought anything else. The Vintage Modern is nice because it has an extra gain stage (and more power, but I rarely need it!) and a slightly different voice. It's one channel with a gain boost, but a very versatile and responsive amp.

Ah ok...I figured. I had the 2266 head and stupidy sold it. I beat myself daily because of it. Great amp for sure.
