Hello everyone, I am an Englishman living in the Florida Panhandle with my wife, two dogs and 7 guitars. I have owned a few Epiphones over the years (I started playing in 1972 aged just 14). In England I had an SG Prophecy and a Joe Pass Emperor which I sold, along with 17 other guitars, when I came to the USA. I have had an Epiphone Les Paul Special for a while and just sold a Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom. In the last week I have become the proud owner of a spotless Tobacco sunburst 1999 Dot Deluxe and a newer natural colored Dot. I use a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe George Benson amp, but also, for quieter moments, use a Peavey Backstage 110, a Crate RFX 15watt combo and a Vox AD15vt. I use a Boss Blues Driver BD2 and little else when playing live and I have a line6 Amplifi FX100 effects unit I use for recording in my home studio. Thanks for having me aboard, I look forward to some fun interaction.
