Topic: Hi from New Zealand
First post-itis, I'm obviously a bit of a JB nut like everyone else on here. Coming at you from little old New Zealand, I morphed into a guitar/amp/pedal collector when my success in the music industry never ended up coming to fruition!
I guess I'm a Fender Strat guy by definition; bought my 91 back when I was 19 and I turn 40yrs old next year. It's never really left my side for any length of time, it's a killer guitar and has served me wherever in the world I may have been (it's the black one in my avatar). Still the one I always grab first.
Joe has got me back into the Gibson's, can't afford the real thing right now but a few weeks ago I bought myself one of the Vintage Green/Moore 'lemon drop' guitars and it's beautiful. My Dad's pride and joy is his cherry red 1977 Gibson ES355... so I guess even if I never win the lottery I'll be passed down his treasure at some point.
Looking forward to getting to know some of you, chur chur JIM.
