I've been a member here for about 7 years but only recently have become active.
I was a hardware engineer for 20 years and switched to software engineering for the past 20 years. I played in bands steady for about 10 years before switching to a day job (I could never afford nice gear while I was playing).
A few years back I decided I didn't like the service work I was paying good money for from various techs. I found great information on YouTube and grabbed all of the material from Dan Erlewine to learn as much as I could about instrument setup and restoration. I now do the work for others (on the side from my day job) and all of my own work.
I repair and modify all of my electronics as well. And no - not all my tools are from StewMac ;).
We have a good bunch here - I'm glad I ramped up to active.
