    Yep. I fiddle about with both the mandolin and the banjo. My dad played mandolin as well. Kind of a neat toy. The banjo is another story. I love playing it, but I'm nowhere nears proficient on it. I can play it. And not much more.

    Your picture reminds me of my high school days. My parents bought me a Gibson Les Paul, which by the time I got rid of it, had been sanded down, gutted, repotted, rewired...man I tore that thing up. I bought a Gibson Melody Maker in high school, and that was a lot easier to work on. Similar to a strat where all the guts are on the pickguard. Much easier to work with when you can just take off the pickgaurd and flip it over, rather than working in a small cavity.

    As I learn more and more about my guitar, I appreciate it and enjoy playing it even more. I bought a '97 Fender Squier Supersonic (yes, still made in Japan!) from Ebay for 250 last June. It's got a silver sparkle finish, very very gaudy, but the neck is fantastic and it plays really well (or so I think, since I lack experience). My friend Colin has a great page on all of his guitars:

    Who the hell needs a tone control?
    Guitarist only need a volume dial with two settings... "off" and "ten".

    And as a guitar player...
    I would leave my girlfriend...
    But then I would be homeless!

    Ha! I'm getting to old for that lifestyle anymore. More like sittin' on the porch with a fat Punch cigar.

    Drums, 40 plus years...

    but, what was the point of this thread in the first place? ;-)

    Alto Sax, playing for ten years, ever since sixth grade. Love jazz, and marching band music. Played in plenty of band festivals and football games. Even went to march in the Tournament of Roses Parade.
