    Welcome @blank28 - but were the other questions too boring to bother with?  ;)
    Welcome @Grocer_Jack - good luck with the releases, feel free to post in the "plug my stuff" section when you're ready
    Welcome @kevoffthetee - that's a good incentive to learn to play, and you'll get plenty of suggestions on what to buy
    Welcome @Bootsclan - enjoying playing can be difficult enough without worrying about finding a magical tone too ...
    Welcome @PetarNed - I don't immediately remember that Hendrix track ... must go give it a listen.

    Hello. Just getting back to playing after years away. Was in a couple of OK bands when I was in my teens and twenties although always 'relegated' to bass (sorry bassists) because I was never the best guitarist and made the mistake of buying one.

    A few weeks ago I found myself with some money and time for the first time in a while so bought a Les Paul and started trying to remember everything...

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?
    I moved out of London to the Hertfordshire countryside. One of my team at the time (an Aussie) said "Don't buy a Land Rover, you'll look like a blow-in." It made me laugh and it's been a name on a few forums now.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?
    North Herts. About 15 minutes into the sticks from J9 of the A1.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?
    To play in a local band that, at worst, doesn't embarrass my children.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?
    My wine red Gibson Les Paul Studio.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?
    Band of Gold by Freda Payne. I love plenty of more obviously 'guitar' music but desert island discs wise this is number one. Worth noting, though, that it uses an electric sitar where most Invictus/Motown would have horns. So kind of fits...

    Hi I'm a solo acoustic guitar player / singer in Milton Keynes. Like many of you I buy, I try, I get bored, I sell. I like quality gear not because it's reliable necessarily but because it's well made and lasts (that's quality). I keep a very simple PA / guitar setup as it allows me to focus on the music, but occasionally I fall of the wagon and end up with more stuff to sell.

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    My name is Tom, so I am only a tom - you see?

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    I'm from lovely Bristol in England

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    I used to want to tour the world with a band, but I have a feeling that ambition has passed. These days it's just to enjoy and consume as much music as possible, and continue to create my own music.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?

    My Gibson Les Paul - gifted to me by my uncle - a wonderful player that sounds phenomenal.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?

    The Clash - (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais

  • Q1:  Where did you username come from? Nowhere special. It’s basically my name, with some generic digits. 

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you? Born in Widnes, currently live in Runcorn for my sins. Basically just outside of Liverpool.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition? I was in a signed band for a number of years, playing blues/classic rock and sort of 70’s style fuzzy type stuff. Now I’m a full time electrical engineering student and father of three, so I just play where I can. I record/session with a couple of bands. And play covers occasionally in the Hard Days night hotel in Liverpool. That’s enough for me at the moment.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one? My Hummingbird is my pride and joy. I get itchy over it from time to time. But luckily I come to my senses and realise how gutted I’d be without it. With everything else I’m very transient. 

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one? Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones. Not particularly guitar-focused.. it’s just my favourite song.
