I actually joined this forum a few years back when I bought an SE Semi Hollow. I kind of got sidetracked with work shortly afterwards and never actually posted.
I just ordered an SE Pauls Guitar in blue. It's going to be here Thursday. I am really excited.
I'm a 62 year old kid and have been playing guitar since I was a teenager. I was fortunate enough to have a good teacher and was active in my school band. I tried out for and got the guitarist slot in our high school Jazz band. That's where I learned a lot of foundation that has served me well over the years.
With life and family and work, my guitar playing has been up and down over the years, but back in the early 2000s I picked up an acoustic again and started experimenting with a few alternate tunings. I discovered I had a knack for working in them very quickly started composing some songs in an Americana style. I joined a band and that started a wonderful 5 years of playing and performing locally.
All good things come to an end and after the 2008 crash, I ended up changing careers and became an over the road truck driver. That means I have a lot less time to devote to playing. I'm working on getting back into playing and have been carrying the semi hollow with me on the road. I am throwing a couple of humidipaks in the bag with it and keep it strapped to my bunk mattress. Even though the humidipaks are really made for acoustics, I thought it would be a good idea as in the winter, I travel from Florida to California and in the warmer month will go from Florida to Washington State. That means humidity and elevation changes everyday. So far, it seems to be working well.
Now with the SE Pauls Guitar, I can start playing with alternate tunings again. So anyhow, hope everyone here has a good day and when my new guitar comes in, I will post up a pic! I'm going to also be more active in the forum!
