I joined after the MR forum went tits up.
To be honest I never really posted on the MR forum and only joined it to sell an amp and a guitar.
Once I became a member here I started actually contributing a bit.
Since joining The FB I've spent far more than I ever would have done, had I not been a member. Discovering Coda was particularly dangerous.
However, I've since sold all my gear and am now guitarless / ampless.
I tend stick around Off Topic and BCD now, as I don't really have a great deal of interest in the on topic stuff.
It sounds strange being a member of a guitar forum while not actually owning a guitar, but I think it is testament to the members and community that have been built up here. Plus I love a bit of drama, and there is often that.
I can't help about the shape I'm in, I can't sing I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to
I joined because I know there are some good, solid drinkers on here.
Good man, on my third gin.
@Neill Have you tried "t'other way oop"? I understand Dave Kilminster started as a lefty but had to relearn as a righty after damaging his hand go-karting... How he then manages the multidfinger pick-hand tapping, I dunno.
I joined on the advice of @CasperCaster after lurking for a while. Found it a useful resource of knowledge and information with some fantastic threads on building and assembling. I have few nice guitars but in order to get the next one, I usually have to sell something first. After selling a nice Gretsch I've been through a good few guitars over the last couple of years, with some dealings on the very forum.
Despite attempting to reduce my collection I now have more than ever and am about to get one more having bought one of the teles from GSP's Black Friday sale (build thread to follow - however I will be outsourcing at least the finishing of the body as this is just too nice to not get the best finish I can).
