Always been an Andy Capp fan. Felt like it was time for a change. For the last four years it was my grandson(aged 7) with my 06 Standard strapped on. He's a lot bigger now:laugh2:

Mine is my number one guitar, es339 which I call my 1a now with the es336, which I play interchangeably. And as for the hat, I wear a hat all the time.

It's a picture of me after I ground it up through Photoshop. Also, my name is actually Rich.

Playing guitars is just something to do between cricket and death.

Kangaroos are fairly evocative of this country and I like a beer!

It also reminds me of a small country pub that burnt down years ago. There was a large male Roo that used to wander into the bar of an evening and drink the beers offered by patrons.

Lots of times when choosing an avatar, I use a picture of a guitarist who have influenced me... though once in a blue moon I'll have an anime character there just to change it up a bit.

For quite a while I had the X-Files "I want to believe" poster with my les paul crudely photoshopped over the UFO. That was because of a thread I started when I was new here - I claimed to be the new owner of Beano complete with tale about a mysterious uncle, a meeting in a pub and a visit from Ringo Starr. It went well, considering.

My current one is because of a now deleted thread - the OP put up some mediocre pics of his guitar with a big tale about being a pro photographer and how no-one was allowed to use his pics because COPYRIGHT. Sharks sensed the blood in the water, there was a short feeding frenzy and the OP and thread were gone forever. I had taken one of his shots, and 'shopped it (badly, again...) onto a mug to use somewhere in the thread.

After he was gone, I used the pic as avatar because I wanted a change. A mod spotted it, pulled it and warned me against breaching copyright so I took a pic of my guitar at the same angle and put that on the mug with the added copyright message.

I'm getting sick of it now though, I'll probably take a photo of the cat and use that instead.
