    Well, I found this site several weeks ago, but just now got around to visiting this portion of it. Yes, I'm a new member, though if you look at that picture of me you'll see that I'm hardly new to the world. Yep, I've reached Old Cootdom status. :?

    I bought my first Gibson back in 1969, an EB-3 bass because my hero at the time was Jack Bruce, and it made sense that if I had the exact same type of guitar, then I could play the exact same way. Funny how it doesn't work that way. I sold that bass sometime in the late 1970s, and boy I wish I had held on to it, based on the prices I see for those on eBay, and mine was in mint condition, with the original case. I often wonder where it is now. Before that, I had a 1959 Fender Precision. That ended up destroyed in a fire when our city's largest music store burned down (I had traded it in for the Gibson, and a few weeks later -- poof). :-\

    So what do I have now? I got back into basses a couple of years ago, and at the moment I own three Epiphone Elitist EB-3s (still the closest thing to an original EB3 out there), a 2005 Gibson SG Reissue, and a couple of el cheapo Epiphone EBOs.

    So what am I doing on everythingsg.com? Well, since I truly believe that money just burns holes in your pockets, then I decided I would add some six-strings to my collection, which currently includes (in no particular order): a 2006 SG Classic, another 2006 SG Classic (hey, it had different woodgrain from the other one!), a 2000 SG Standard (cherry and beautiful), a 2002 SG Special (black), a 1992 SG Special (white -- recently found on Ebay in really amazing original condition), a 2002 SG Special Faded Mahogany with the wonderful crescent moon inlays, a 2006 SG Special Faded Mahogany, a 2005 Epiphone G400 Vintage Cherry, and a 2005 Epiphone G400 Vintage Mahogany. Oh yeah, and an Epiphone Elitist Les Paul Standard Plus, but I can't remember the year.

    So that's me, that's my stuff, and you'll be reading lots of my pesky questions on this forum. Memphis has a really nice Guitar Center, and more importantly, it is home to the Gibson Guitar Factory, where they build various ES-styles but also have a Gibson store so I can check out the latest models in person. Even so, those folks often can't answer technical (and other) questions, so everythingsg.com is a great place. Thanks for letting me be a part of the group. :roll:

    Hey TDS, that Guitar Acquisition Syndrome done got out of hand!

    Um, have you been in the forum gallery yet?
