Hello,

I've just found/joined the UG community...so, Hi All!

My name's Steve, and I've owned several hand-made guitars since my Dad (a luthier) built me my first custom electric (a Strat clone...only much nicer ) at age 12.

I've still got that guitar 22 years later, it still plays like a dream.

It's has a 2-piece ash body, a beautifully marked flame maple neck, two single-coil pickups & a humbucker (all Seymour Duncan).

I'll post a picture.

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself to the community, and I look forward to making a contribution.

Kind regards,
Steve

his intro was so nice I don't think anyone could care

lol
WELCOME! Even though I'm not part of this particular forum so much, unless i'm lookin for wiring diagrams, you'll probably find intrests in other parts of the forum as I'm guessing you play guitar and have for 22 years, so I'm sure your insight would be appreciated in Musician talk and advanced techniques perhaps, and you might wonder into the pit...a mindless pit of immaturity packed with hilarity and entertainment.

Yeah, and putting your full name as your username wasn't the best idea either haha, no worries though, and welcome to UG.

Yeah, by the way, do NOT wander into the pit unless you want to laugh for 10 hours straight or possibly never find your way out of the pit. If you do leave the pit after a visit, you might feel a bit dirty...

You guys make the pit sound like a wretched hell hole.

It's not.
It's actually quite mild relative to most other forums out there.

I look through it all the time.

well here in the GB&C we are a clean and industrious people. there is designated threads for templates, wirings, pedals, etc. check out the customizing gallery, its very cool. theres also a question for invader jim thread, which started as a simple question for a GB&C regular, which got spammed to hell and is now sort of the office watercooler here. yeah the mods are pretty cool here. oh, and the resident celebrity is Perry Orsmby, a pro luthier from australia, check out his threads often, as they're pretty cool. just a sec ill add some links.

Welcome to UG. Most of us are pretty cool and like to help people but sometimes a**holes do show up and try to start trouble. Don't let them get to you. Once again Welcome to UG and post some pics of that strat. I've got pics of my gear in my profile if you want to see it.

Welcome Steven, it seems now that I'm not the only one here with their full name for their username!

I hope to see some of your builds soon.

Hey, guys!

Once again, I'm pretty overwhelmed with your warm welcome.

I can see I'm gonna enjoy being here!

'The Pit' sounds like fun...if it's anything like some of the 'offline' pits I've moshed in, I'll feel right at home

I'll whack up some pics of my custom Strat tomorrow when I'm back home (spending Xmas with my Wife's family)

Cheers folks

I used to post in the pit but now I usually stay in one of these 3 forums GB&C, EG or GG&A. Sometimes I visit the metal forum too. There's just too much B.S. in the Pit.

I go in the pit when I want to laugh. Most of the time, I stay in these forums (4260+ posts FTW)

4260? Holy Christ, that's alot.


Oh, last thing, PLEASE don't post in a thread that's been dead for more than two weeks. Some of us subscribe to threads to get updates and there's nothing more annoying than "new update to thread X" in my email then to go there and see "hey, nice build man" or "updates?"

Also, for a laugh or two, search Austinzor and read his build thread. It's just wrong. I'll find the link.

EDIT: Found it! Epic failure at it's finest. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=840710&page=1&pp=20

Hey, Welcome!!

I don't think I'll ever contribute with anything but questions... But I like it here.

I was temped to ask where should I place a MultiFX here instead on the Gear forum... but that'd be against the guidelines. It's just that there's a whole lotta knowledge here that you can't find anywhere else.
