Gotta love threads that ask your age. Finally, something we all know the answer to. :)

Age: 60 - I just scraped into the "Not quite as old as somebody else here" category... :)

Location: West Australia


Yahama AES620 (Les Paul style, I guess)
Yamaha Pacifica 112J (Strat style)
Yamaha CG-101MS (Nylon string classical style acoustic)
Terada dreadnought acoustic
Seagull S6+CW Acoustic/electric with cutaway.
Johnson hollowbody
Johnson Bass
Johnson Strat copy with 2 humbuckers and 1 single coil
Epiphone SG 400 'faded vintage look'

Assorted Johnson and Vox amps.
Plus Casio keyboard, drums, clarinet, sax, banjo, and mandolin - all cheapies, and mostly played enthusiastically but extremely ineptly.

How long:
Not long enough! :roll: About 3 years, mostly in disorganised bursts. Getting better, and it now takes noticeably longer for my playing to empty the room. :wink:

Age: 24
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Gear: See my signature...but the good stuff is:

Acoustic: Martin Baby!!!
Electric: Fender Strat----Fuzz-Delay-EQ-Comp-EPI VALVE JUNIOR

I've been playing guitar since I was a sophomore in college (2002). So that's 5 years now.

I'm very excited because I am going to be teaching a little guitar this summer for my school's summer program. I am an English teacher, but I was recently promoted to Assistant Dean, so my teaching time is dwindling. So I'm very excited to be teaching it, even though it's only going to be a class a week for 6 weeks. I guess that's a good thing when the Music Department Chair asks you to take on some guitar classes...when I've never had a class of it myself!!! Hooray for progress.

So which was it? Four-hundred-and-ninety-first or four-hundred-and-ninety-second? I suppose if you're that advanced in years, one birthday's pretty much the same as do look remarkably well for it though!

Sorry Kath - couldn't resist!

:D :D :D

:lol:Yeah, Chris has me heavily out-Johnsoned. :oops:

My Johnson gets enough TLC to make up for it, though. :P

Hi everyone :D

Well, I'm 37 years old.

Originally from the South Chicago 'burb of Tinley Park.
Been living in the Northwoods of Wisco since 2001.
Woodboro to be more specific.

Been playing since I was 18 (1988).
Had a few lessons sometime in the early 90's.
Mostly self taught, or what Uncle Bobby shows me. (He went to college for music. A classically trained bluesman)

I have an 88 MIA Strat that is my main electric.
And a pristine 71 strat that is my favorite.
A 91 Ovation Custom Balladeer w/cedar top that gets the most play.
And a no name hollow body from the early 60's with a single magnet only (no coil) pup in the neck that I use for slide.

I have an early 60's Harmony H303a 5 watt tube amp.
And I can play thru my JVC 2 channel cassette deck.
The amp volume acts as a master volume and the tape deck volume gives me different levels of distortion.

No pedals

And that's it.
