    I built one of these polls back in the Birds and Moons days. The results were definitive (engineering was the dominant field). But recent threads made me think that it might be time to rebuild the thread and leave it up for reference. Who knows... maybe things have changed.

    I say let the truth stand. Whatever it is, let it stand. If we really are doctors and lawyers, I shall wear it with pride.

    (Many of us teeter on several fields equally. Poll will allow for up to 3 areas to be selected.)

    I’ve been with the company I work for since 1987. I managed people/departments for the majority of that time. I look for revenue, these days, from the comfort of my basement!

    I am Retired Military in Engineering (Mechanical and Civil)

    Now I'm in Fire Protection Inspections. I guess that still qualifies as Engineering with a minor in Customer Service.o_O

    Long retired - but was in institutional sales for Procter & Gamble. Previous to that I managed a music store that sold Gibson, Martin, Fender, Kustom, etc. That was wayyyyy before PRSH was a teenager!

    For most of my career I turned wrenches as a generator tech and then managed the same guys for our northeast region, now for the last decade plus I am in sales.

    I was a police chief who played guitar, now I'm a guitar player that does police consulting. Who knew making music and giving advice would be so much less stressful! lol

    Only 3 doctors/lawyers so far. That puts to bed the old theory that PRS guitars are only owned by doctors and lawyers.

    Has this type of survey ever been done here for age ranges? I want to know if I am going to be old man at Experience.
