Where do you guys live and what do you do?
« Reply #17 on: December 29, 2008, 11:53:08 AM »
Greetings to all.
Newbie, joined the forum today so as an intro...

Real name: Roger
Age: early 50s (going on 20!)
Based: Norfolk (hence my user-name on here)
Life stuff: married, grownup kids, share my life with my lady and a mad labrador who thinks I'm God!

Favourite guitarists: depends who I'm listening too at the time but most of the usual suspects... Gary Moore, Hendrix, SRV, Eric Clapton (inevitably), think Mark Knoffler is a genius

The babies:
Washburn WD46S Rarewood Acoustic
Washburn WI-66 Pro
Westone Spectrum SX

A quick welcome to the forum norfolk, the more the merrier in our section. Looks like we got near enough the same ideas of who to listen to regards music. I especially agree that Mark knopler is a genius. Just getting into Andy Mckee at the mo, so my old acoustic is taking a bashing literally. Check him out on you tube if you haven't already, then rush to the pawn shop for a beater 'cos to wear out a WD46S rarewood is criminal. Have a great New Year.

And a warm welcome to bluebuddah, my boy and his mates visit your site so you're obviously Cool and more to the point an excellent source for the Extreme fans. Quite a few Nuno fans here so you're in the right place. Anyway your guitar selection is impeccable, beautiful N4 !!
Hope the new year brings a price drop on everything you enjoy.

This is what I posted recently on another section of the forum, but since I'm from Europe, I figured it would make sense to put it up again:

First Name: Steven
User Name: StefN4N8

Reside: Delft, The Netherlands

Age: I turned 33 in September 2008.

Family: Married my high-school sweetheart, and have 2 beautiful sons now.

Occupation: Senior Executive at an international software firm.

Hobbies: I cook and I play my Washburn Nunos - that's about it!

Why do you like this forum?
1) Great opportunity to talk about N-series
2) Wonderful source of info
3) Opportunity to socialize when all others are asleep :-)

When did you buy your 1st Washburn?
Somewhere in 1992

Why did you buy your 1st Washburn?
MAJOR Extreme fan back then - and quite frankly still am.

Future Plans:
1) Work way less
2) Spend much more time with the kids
3) Buy (a few) more N-Series ;-)

My dreamteam:

'08 N3 (N4, Alder w/maple fretboard)
'02 N4 (Alder MIJ)
'02 N4 (Padauk Stained)
'95 N8 (Swamp Ash)
'93 N2 (Padauk Stained)
'92 EA20 Festival Series (Black)
'91 Davies N4 (1-piece) still on it's way...

And a warm welcome to belfast popeye and our european brother stefN4N8. Good to have you guys around, the more people the more knowledge and usually a faster response to questions as the time zones are (for part of the year at least) the same. Anyway we're getting a sizeable crew in our section and let me be the first to wish everyone a Great New Year

Hi steve and welcome to our bit, no need to ask your taste in guitars, pretty obvious. Just seems like the holy grail of the two major groups are
A Dime Stealth USA
B Padauk Body 1993 N4
That's why I like the older models, at least mine turn up on UK ebay sometimes.
