31 y/o self-taught fella here. Been "playing" since I was about 19. I wouldn't call myself a particularly good player, nor particularly well-versed in theory, but I find it an entertaining and rewarding hobby.
I have a modest collection of equipment, consisting of a Gibson Explorer Voodoo, a Warmoth Stratocaster, a Squier Classic Vibe J-Bass, and an Epiphone DR-500. I have a Marshall Zakk Wylde mini-stack (yay apartment living!), a Fender Studio 85, and a variety of pedals (mostly Boss, but also an MXR, an EH, and a Morley)
I'm looking forward to browsing the forums, and hopefully learning many new things - Lord knows I have a LOT to learn...
Anyway, it's a pleasure to be a part of this forum. Hopefully I'll be able to add things here and there on the boards
