    Hi, my name is Kyle. I have been lurking around here for the past couple weeks and I feel it is time to join and introduce myself. I first got into guitars around 12 years ago, but life got busy, and I quit playing for the past 8 years or so. Mostly have been deep into motocross and building Jeeps. Now I have baby on the way, so its time to take a break from that stuff and do something more low key. That is when I decided to revive my love for music and guitars and I could not be happier. Over the past couple months I have been picking up a bunch of new gear. I have a Micro Terror and matching cab, OR15, and a EVH 5150III 50w. I bought a Peavey VK212 back in 2007 with graduation money but just traded that for a Fender USA made 4x12, SG System 2x12, and a reverb pedal. As for guitars, I have a Gibson Les Paul Studio I picked up as my first new guitar in 8 years, a 1998 MIM Fender Strat, and Epiphone Les Paul. I also recently bought a MIJ Ibanez RG520 off a forum member but off Reverb. I just shipped out an LTD EC400 I have had since 2008 or so in a trade for another forum members Ibanez RG7420. That will be my first 7 string. I am planning on selling my Epiphone Les Paul to a friend and am looking at getting either a LTD M1000 or MH1000 to replace my EC. I was also looking at the new PRS SE 24 models and was thinking about those as well. Pretty torn on weather to pick up a PRS SE 24, LTD, Iron Label 7 a forum member has for sale, or just wait and go with a used MII or an actual ESP Mirage. Anyways, i'm super indecisive, addicted to gear, and my name is Kyle.

    Hi Kyle!

    :welcome:

    I was also born in Michigan, and lived there for 25 years.

    I hope you enjoy your Ibanez RG7420! That was always one of my favourite old seven strings. You also can't really go wrong with a real ESP.

    Cheers!

    Have tons of extended family in Traverse City. It'd be the perfect place to live if the cost of living was lower and there were just a few more opportunities for jobs.

    Traverse is awesome, I live just south of there. I agree with you on the living costs and amount of jobs. I luckily live far enough away where its not bad. I ended up pulling the trigger on a MIJ Jackson DKMG to replace my LTD.
