Where do you guys live and what do you do?
« on: October 21, 2008, 09:07:51 AM »
I thought it is much more familiar here in the UK section than at the main site. So let us tell a little bit about our life, our hobbies and our guitars.


I will make the start:

My real name: Marcus

Age: 36

Hometown: Vienna/Austria

A little bit about my life:
I'm in love with my girlfriend since nearly 3 years and our son will be born about next sunday. So my hobbies (music, american football, go for a drink or two) have to rest a little bit. But I would like to visit this forum as often as I can.


So it will be a pleasure for me to read a view lines and see some pics from you guys and your guitars.


Cheers

Denim

Hello everyone.

Real Name; Tony.

Status; Poor, I mean married. Same thing??!!

Age; a couple of years past the big 40.

Home Town; Ruskington, near Lincoln.

Life; Married 13 years. Hobbies; music, rugby, food beer & wine.
 
Favourite bands/guitarists; Queen, Maiden, Michael Schenker, Rush and most other 70s/80s rock/metal bands & guitarists.

Congratulations denimblack on your new arrival. I'm pretty sure your new aquisition will work out a darn sight more expensive than any guitar. Have you got some Washburn posters for the nursery yet???

Hi CB,

First of all I have to say thanks for the congrats. Yes, I think my son will be more expensive than any of something. My son and my girl friend are at home since wednesday and we are a happy little family.
No, I don't have any posters.


Cheers from Vienna

Thanks Duke.

I'm collecting too, and no time to play. And from now on, no money for more guitars. But still infected with GAS. Let's see.

Cheers
