    Hi, I'm Tina from Pittsburgh. I'm a (very) amateur guitar player who pretty much walked away from it for a number of years but is now coming back to it. I currently own two Epiphone's - an old PR-600-ASB Acoustic that I got back around 1980 and a Les Paul Custom Pro (the TV Sliver limited edition). I also have a Fender Strat MIM (the Squier Series from the mid-90's, as opposed to a Squire Strat) and two basses (a Yamaha and a Hofner), and I tinker with maintaining my instruments (I rebuilt the Fender from junk and I now do all my own setup).

    Here they are. I've added a Skysonic pickup to the PR, and it could use a good clean-up, but there are the two I play the most. The action is really good on both of these, and I love the tone on them both.

    Welcome along Tina!

    Nothing wrong with being an amateur - owned an electric guitar on and off since I was 11 and I still class myself as a beginner :facepalm: putting that right now though, as I have a little more time on my hands to devote to it.

    Sounds like you have a nice family of guitars already, but be warned... there so many nice guitars on the forum it won't be long before you'll be hankering for 'just one more...' :)

    And as Paruwi said, we love pictures here - and not just Epiphones either!

    I've learned loads since joining, and we're a friendly bunch, hope you find the forum as useful and entertaining as I have :thumb:

    *Sigh* So true. If I had all the guitars I wanted I wouldn't have any room for anything else!

    (Come to think of it - why is that so bad... :D)

    Ummm, well in my case SWMBO might object, and that's a lot of TSA cases to protect them from our feline population.

    I'm not calling them intentionally destructive, but considering I kept my axe in the drawer of a solidly built 1930's dresser before I got my SKB........you can do the subconscious math.

    I love them, but they can be boogers.

    Welcome! Sooner or later I'd like to add a silver LP to my collection. One of my favorite colors.
