Introduce yourself!

Hi, Mike here. 47yo who loves geeking out over everything guitar related. I work for a non-profit agency supporting adults with disabilities.

I’ve been gigging more than usual this summer: acoustic gigs, cover band, jazz fusion band. I’m not a great jazz player but I do aspire to play that stuff. Love playing 80s tunes in the cover band and getting full value out of my tremolo!

I recently bought a used PRS S2 Custom 22 Satin Hollowbody which should be in my avatar. Love it.
Welcome Mike! Looking forward to seeing some more pix of your guitars, we love 6 string porn here ;~)) The avatar looks good!! If you have any original or cover music you would like to share with us, you can do so in the Studio & Stage section!!!
It's only polite to introduce ones self

And so I will.
I'll leave the name and job stuff for the sig.
I bought my first PRS used in 1988 or so, a Std24. I had heard of these, and got lucky enough to find one. Wish I still had it, but I sold it to buy a Super 400...
I play Klein guitars a lot. I have three. I know Lorenzo German pretty well. (Please, if you're one of his former customers, don't ask me to help you get your guitar that you ordered way back there, I have one on order too.). I try to keep my GAS disease under control, but guitars are tax write offs for me, so it's pretty easy to justify them.
After years of looking at them again, I bought a Hollowbody Spruce from Brian Meader when he was still at Washington Music Center near DC, three years ago. Then I bought a Studio from him last year. I love that too. It sounds different, and I like that. I want a P22.
I play jazz. Not much rock and roll. But I do like to get a variety of sounds from a guitar, and these do it.
I really admire PRSh's drive to make a really good instrument. I've never met him, but I'd like to. He seems to be just a bit obsessed about making things as good as he can, and I really like that.
My job is in the Maritime provinces of Canada, and there's not much available. I'd like to try one of the new amps, but there aren't any near me there.
Guitars are more fun than just about anything else.
I'm in.
Nice to meet you.
I'm Chip and have been playing since 1976. I just got my first PRS product recently - a Custom 24 SE. I'd played a few over at Sweetwater (I live about 60 miles away) and liked them, but didn't buy one at the time since I wasn't really in the market. Dumb move. A couple of months ago I was on the site and was looking at the one in my avi. My wife looked at the screen and said "Why don't you get it?"

What a wonderful instrument. It plays and sounds great. I'm so impressed with it that I've got my eye on picking up a PRS 509 in the next year or so.

Have a great day!
