  1. I know you guys would love this! First off, a little backstory on me first and how I started playing before I share this. I was born premature and have major back issues because of it and was a Shriner's patient until I was 18. There were certain things doctors didn't want me to do growing up because of it. So, the year 2000 rolls along and I'm 8 years old. I see KISS on Direct TV Pay Per View airing the KISS: THE LAST KISS concert during their "farewell" tour then. Thank God, I walked in the living room to see my parents watching it! Immediately became a KISS fanatic and beg my parents for a guitar. Of course, being a diehard KISS fanatic, I'm obviously love Ace's '80's solo band Frehley's Comet, who obviously, had a huge impact on me, too. Fast forward to present day being in my 20's. I'm friends with Tod Howarth on Facebook, who was the other guitarist and singer in Frehley's Comet. Made some comments on his stuff saying how much of an influence and impact he had on my playing and he was super appreciative. Eventually PM'd him telling him the story on my back and health issues saying how big of an impact he has had on my playing and gave him my story on my back and health issues and asked for an autograph and gave him my address too send. Got a response from him saying, he was touched by my story and "Of course I'll send you something!" and at the beginning of the year, I get this autograph of him with the rest of his new band Four By Fate and a hand written note from him with his personal guitar picks! The band also includes bassist John Regan, who also played for Frehley's Comet and also was Peter Frampton's bassist for years and did work for countless others. Drummer is Skid Row's former drummer Rob Affuso, and the other guitarist is Pat Gasperini. I'm forever grateful for this! Not everyday stuff like this happens - especially from childhood heroes! Talk about a major class act and a great group of guys! For check out Four By Fate! Thought I'd share!
  2. Awesome! I recently picked one up, too. Picked mine up a couple of weeks ago. Mine is the single pickup one and cherry, though. Absolutely love mine! Guitar Center just opened in my area a couple of weeks ago and I went opening day, which was the 5th, and I picked up that Saturday. They had the two pickup version in red, too, but I wanted the single pickup one. Someone snatched the 2 pickup one up, because it was gone by the time I went back to get mine that Saturday. But, like I said, I had my eye on the single P90 one. I love mine and couldn't be happier! Mine was list at $550, but got it for $500.
  3. This guitar is super fun to play! The P90 in it sounds absolutely fantastic! Sounds great through my Marshalls, Fenders, and VOX. Heck, even sounds great through my MESA Single Rectifier half stack and MESA F50 combo. Haven't tried it through my Peavey stuff, yet. Been mainly playing it through my '89 Marshall JCM 800 2210 half stack.
  4. Thanks! It was listed at $550. Got it for $500. It plays and sounds amazing! My guitar with a P90. Always wanted a Junior, Special, one of those older Melody Makers, or something in general with a P90 pickup or two. Seen this in the new GC in my area when they first opened on the 5th of this month and seen the price being brand new and was like, "Hmm.", so I went back and got it that Saturday.
  5. Around 40 at the moment, haha.
  6. Heck, I need to. Can't fit everything into one pic, though, haha.
  7. Pretty cool! Good selection of Gibson, Epiphone, and Fender guitars! A couple of PRS SE models. They have the Mitchell line in and Jackson, Schecter, Squier, Gretsch, and Ibanez stuff. Music Man basses. Decent amp selection. Pretty good acoustic selection from what I seen in the acoustic room. Didn't spend much time in the acoustic room. But did see some Epiphone and Taylor stuff. Think they got Washburn acoustics, too? Didn't see a Gibson acoustic in there. But, I didn't spend much time in the acoustic room. It was super packed the two days I went, which is understandable, since it just opened. Going to give it time to die down/be less crowded before going back in, haha.
  8. Thanks, man! The reason for the Junior Tribute other than it playing and sounding great is that I don't have anything with P90 pickups and been wanting something with a P90 or two since I've been playing. Plus, it was a good deal! The reason for the Peavey bass amp is because I have a Carvin R1000 full stack. Though it's a good amp, I'm just not happy with it for some reason and wanted something simpler and smaller. Plus, guitar is my primary instrument. Really want an Ampeg of some sort, but this thing is great and will do the job! Plus, for $90, you can't go wrong. The RG wad a surprise from my dad because he fell in love with how it looks and, though, he is a drummer, he was like, "I know how great the DiMarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton pickups are!", which he is right. Those are really good pickups.
  9. Yeah, but no '50's and '60's Fender's and Gibsons. That man needs to share those for the rest of us, haha. The oldest guitar I have is my '75 L6-S, which I got like 6 1/2 - almost 7 years back for under a grand. Amazing and underrated guitar!
  10. Thanks! 😂😂😂😂 No, but I still have a caveman slide phone, so that's why my pics are a bit crap.
  11. Ben awhile since I've posted on here! Hope everyone here is doing great! Anyway, got a few new pieces of gear since I last posted. I'll start off with the one I just got today. Guitar Center just opened in my area on Thursday and I went to the grand opening. I seen this brand new '19 Gibson Les Paul Junior Tribute with the single P90 pickup. It was $550. I was like, "Hmm. I like this thing a lot a lot!". So, I went back in there today and got it. My first guitar with a P90 and it screams! Always wanted a Junior, Special with P90 pickups, or a guitar with P90's in general. This was $550 and they had a 10% off thing going on - think it is just for the grand opening? - so I got it for $500. Second is a Peavey TNT bass amp. Has the Black Widow 115 speaker in it. 150 watts. It's an older one - '80's or '90's, I believe. USA made one. Picked it up off of my local Craigslist for $90! So far, I'm really liking it! Third piece of gear is an Ibanez RGEW521ZC. This one, my Dad actually surprised me with. He's a drummer, but he enjoys looking at guitars and basses, too. He seen this one on Musician's Friend and fell in love with the looks and thought I'd like it and said, "This guitar is gorgeous, it has DiMarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton pickups, and I figured with it being an RG, you can use something a different in your collection. I think you'll like it.", haha. Took me a couple of weeks to warm up to this guitar, though, but it is cool.
  12. Picked this up today at the new Guitar Center that just opened in my area an jammed with my dad a few of his buddies.

    Picked this up for Christmas. It's a 1996 ESP Vintage Plus. Has Seymour Duncan Vintage Rail pickups and Sperzel locking tuners. Played this at a local music store and was like, "Wow! This is a pretty sweet guitar!". So, I thought about it and picked it up the other day.
