    Welcome to the forums, glad you like what you see. A friend of mine, an excellent player in his own right, knows and has played with Keagy on occasion, when he is in western NY.

    I'm not a great guitar player, just an old guy that's been strumming a few years. I purchased my first electric a couple of weeks ago, an S2 Standard 22. Maybe I'll learn something from some of you guys. That's cool about your friend who has played with Keagy. I've enjoyed listening to him since the early 70s.
