    Hi.

    I'm a grumpy git but grumpy was taken - besides the Mrs. calls me a grinch more often. I'm all good when talking guitars & music, motorcycles and stuff that isn't politics or religion.

    I named my SG Dave, after Mustaine... horns.

    Cheers! ;)

    Welcome to ETSG! As soon as your post count is up, show us some pics of the SG, please! (You need about five posts to be able to post pics, I think.)

    Melbourne is a lovely city. Me and the wife went there on holiday in 2003, the plan is to go back next year.

    Welcome to the forum mate. I wonder if your grumpiness is related to the weather in Melbourne? :D

    If weather affects mental state then I woulda thought most people in Melbourne would have bipolar disorder. I know I wasn't far from it when I lived there :rofl:

    Cheers for the welcome people!

    I'm just a cynical git, which is why I need these sorts of places where folks aren't just looking for a reason to shoot someone down. I despise social media but appreciate YT, so a bit of an oxymoron there.

    I've also had a bunch of head traumas so I have the attention span of a gnat and my short-term memory is atrocious. As in, really... what was I saying..?

    Gahr, you wont really want to see my SG, it's hideous (I'm not being cynical there). I purchased it not long after I began learning, maybe 18 months or thereabouts, because I felt sorry for it. It's a '13 Future tribute that doesn't look like one bar the stupid tuners. As soon as I remember to get some 16mm washers to replace the 14mm washers that came with some Gotohs, they're getting the arse. 16mm will cover up the locking-pin holes.

    Apologies for rambling. Gotta get this stuff down before I fo..... ;)
