I've been lookin around for another place to yap while I've got down time at my Jobby Job , and being that I'm a Metal dude, a Gutiarist (at least i pretend to be one) and own my own guitar repair shop.. I lurked around a bit and this looked like a good place to pop in!!!
I design and build my own guitars, and, yes, they are geared toward Metal.. However.. most of the guitars i build on contract are Les Paul or strat style guitars for Classic Rockers.... (it seems that they got the cash... )
Don't worry, i'm not here to hawk my wares... I'm sure theres a few other techs / luthiers here.... I'm just lookin for a new place to yap incessantly about nothing!! and I'll give any advice i can on how to keep your axes up n running!
I'm also a member over on the My les Pual forum if any of you are familiar.. and while i like those guys a lot.. its a classic rock place... you start talkin about Engl amps and Jackson guitars and you get the hairy eyeball!!!
I actually sold sevenstring.org to the guy that runs the MLP forum, so most of us know of that forum as well. Here, we mostly talk about strippers, beer and King Diamond.
