I live in the northeastern US. I got my first guitar in 1964 and am mostly self taught. I've been gigging with country-rock bands for over 30years. I'm a die hard do-it-yourselfer. Whether it's home repair, auto maintenance, or fixing my musical equip, I'd rather buy the tool and do it myself than pay somebody else. Of course, there are some things I won't try and the key is knowing when you need a pro. (Brain surgery?) email me through the contact feature of Yahoo.
