Hello,
I just joined and wanted to say hello. I have played guitar on and off for the past 36 years (more off) and have gotten serious in the past 2 years. My first guitar ever was a black Fender Strat, which I traded up to an Ibanez, which I hocked when I needed money to help support me and my kids. Many years later I got a inexpensive Cort guitar to pick up and got a couple Godin's (I still have my xTSA which is a workhorse), then I played my first PRS in 2008, whoa, it was the most awesome thing I've played so I got my first CE-22 McCarty Tobacco Sunburst. I still have it today! I'm getting close to retirement to I'm getting my dream guitars, and thus far I have a Silver Sky (core), a 594SC, Custom 24, and pre-ordered a 2021 Studio. Oh and a Custom 24 SE that I play at work on my lunch and breaks. I'm told there is a 12-18 months wait and I'm just over 2 months in. Man, the waiting is rough, so I am loving my current collection and playing daily and waiting with bated breath. Patience...

Welcome and nice to hear of the journey to your dream guitarsenal! I’m a relatively new player (around 3 years) and late-starter, but making up for lost time. As much as I enjoy playing now, extra time in future retirement years is also appealing. I have a Silver Sky and Paul’s Guitar that I thoroughly enjoy playing - they’re very fine instruments and while I’ll probably rarely do them justice, the enjoyment they give makes them a bargain! Seems like such a long time to wait - did you not see any models currently for sale without the need to order? Still - it can be good to make ourselves wait sometimes. Take care.

Thank you! Trust time flies quickly!!! My goal is to become a professional musician/song writer (which has been my lifelong dream, but raising kids and supporting my family came first). Yes there were older ones, but I really wanted the 2021 model, which I couldn't find anywhere. I like the changes they made to the new studio.

I forgot to mention my SE. Apparently I'm not sure how to add a photo to the thread and I'm pretty good with technology.

thanks! Yes, I do love the CE. It's funny, I rotate my guitars each week and play it all week. And every time, I say "whoa, I love this guitar!" So basically it's like I get a new guitar every month.

Nice collection, and welcome to another Kemperite!
Thank you! Yes I am new to the amp/effects world but I am loving this thing and have been studying amps, cabs, effects. It’s really hard to find a basics tutorial on the Kemper. I’ve been through the tutorials on the Kemper page and am reading the Manual.

This one's super basic... starts around 2:15

I’ve actually watched that one too. I subscribe to that channel. The more I learn the more I realize there is more to learn.
