And I mean waaaaay upstate. Nearly Canada! Been playing guitar for 12 years, love cheap guitars and Strats, which I guess is just a fancy way of saying I love modding. Recently started down the path of lutherie. I currently have 19 guitars and 1 bass, the highlights being an early 2010s Schecter Hellraiser Special, a white Tregan Syren, a mid-90s Mexican Squier Strat, and a kit-built headless. I love video games, reading, and metal, particularly Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Death, and Cynic. Greetings!
