    Had to go through that myself, but that was quite a while back. Tough sledding but it sounds like you're on your feet and running.
    Glad you made it.

    So many of these pop social cues I'm missing, other than Rain Man. Yes, I'm clueless with that blank look on my face. Now, back on the planet where I come from .....

    I find myself way out on the tail of the bell curve on this one...but right in the sweet spot on the age question.

    Engineering/Training/Management here.

    Worked in Engineering for about decade and a half (don't have an Engineering degree, just a "Science" degree, so avoiding calling myself an Engineer), now transitioned to Program Management for the last decade and a half. Essentially all in the Training field (mostly Modeling and Simulation - i.e. simulators or training devices), either commercial aviation or military (mostly aviation, but enough other stuff too).

    I suppose with our Sound Production company I could also check off Business Owner, but that is not really a useful income stream.

    So far, 8.1% of the votes are in the medical field, only 2.7% are in law, and the dominate group (at 34.2%) is in engineering. That's three times more than the legal and medical professions combined.

    Next time someone spouts off about PRS being a guitar for Doctors and Lawyers, send them a link to this thread with a steaming-hot cup of shut the [email protected]#k up.

    only a lawyer would cite a voluntary survey as proof of anything, especially without a control group of the total population of guitarists.
