My name is John & I'm a guitar addict


Recommended Posts

My Name is John (some of you may know me from MLP) & I'm a compulsive guitar addict and stupidly thought joining this would help me not to buy anymore guitars, [rolleyes] Boy was I wrong.

I have Been Playing for 30 years both semi pro and just for fun but have never been what you'd call a great lead guitarist but i can get by. I like a groove. I also enjoy anyone that knows chords and uses them well.

my current collection stands at 112 including.


Back Row = 2012 50's Tribute SG

Left to Right

1982 Spirit 1 (all original with Tim Shaw 59 Humbucker)

2014 Les Paul Traditional

2012 Les Paul Classic Custom

2012 Les Paul Studio 50's Tribute HB



2008 Explorer 76 Reissue



2017 Firebird T



Lastly, like so many others here, the guitar is such a great friend to me. It has always been there. Remember..the tone is in your fingers.


Nice forum

I'm almost as big an addict for amps as guitars (current collection 23 amp and assorted cabs)
