OK- I was thinking that it would be cool to get an idea of the average age group and high level profile for all members.
So if you would be kind enough, please provide:
- Your age group
- Your location
- What you play (guitar and amp)
- How long have you been playing

I just turned 44.
I'm in NJ- USA
I play a Custom Les Paul Cherry Sunburst thrugh a Marshall DSL 401
I've been playing for 10 months

Teamwork- A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

I took the liberty of adding the last two and changed the poll so you couldn't vote yourself into two categories.

Alexandria, Va
Many, many, many acoustics the latest a Parker, but also a Collings, Taylor, Breedlove, Fylde, Grammer, Mermer, Washburn. Martin and Ovation

Multiple electrics a Strat, SG, two Schecters, a Brian Moore iGuitar

Play mostly through a Fender Acoustisonic or a PA

..and not long enough today

Your age group - 58

Your location - NSW Australia

What you play (guitar and amp)* -Mainly Fender Strat & Vox AD30VT

How long have you been playing - Just an absolute beginner

* I did have a major GAS attack when I started learning guitar for the first time in 2004 (I did have a lesson or two when I was 13 but I don't count those). I spent so much that it actually turned me off learning to play until last week. Consequently I have seven guitars and four amps but usually don't admit it because it embarrasses me as I cannot play any of them - YET. Thankfully, at least in this case, I'm now retired and the only GAS I can afford is from baked beans. :P

Sleutelbos.....a question.........

Sure I read elsewhere you live virtually in one room - with all that gear, how the hell do you actually get into it? You must be stacking floor-to-ceiling, six deep!

Oh man, it's so fucked up you wouldn't believe. Apart from that stuff I've got my desk with the computer, a couch, a bunch of furniture for the tv/clothes/books/etc and then the piano, two master keybords and a regular keybord. It's really stretching the laws of physics...

51

Bristol, Tennessee, USA, as noted at left

When playing electric, my favorite setup is my Agile AS-820 semihollowbody with P-90s into an Electar Tube 10 (with a Jensen MOD speaker.) I rather like the Valve Junior combo, Pignose G40V (also with a Jensen MOD and modded to fix the excessive tube heater voltage from its power transformer made to work on 100V Japanese line power) and like to tinker with homebuilt amps and old tube gear.

When not plugged in, I play with my Johnson a lot:
