Wags suggested I post an introduction, so..... "Tell us a little bit about you...." I'm 44. I'm here because I was doing research into what new guitar I should get because I gave my older neice my first guitar this summer and just bought my younger one a new one for her Christmas present (a Washburn WI16 - she wanted "fire" painted on it). She's 8 1/2. The older one is going to be 13 in February. I got both of them amps for Christmas too, so I figured it was time for me to get a new guitar and try again. "...your talents..." None that I know of. "...where you are from..." New York. "...how you found etSG..." Google, I think. "...the style of music you play..." I don't. I can't play. I took a few lessons, got bored and quit, went back after a few years, got bored again and quit and didn't go back. I guess that's it. Except, How come no Owner's Manual?
