About Me
     Hi, I'm 18 years old and I've been playing guitar for about 9 years.   (This is me!!!)   As you can probably tell from all the Hendrix pictures floatin around, I'm a big Hendrix fan.  If you have any Hendrix pictures please feel free to e-mail them to me.  In the meantime, here is some of my gear:
     Here's Charlie, my Squier Strat...  (info+specs)
     Here's my Telecaster : Oreo  (info+specs)
     And now, my main guitar... (which currently does not have a name...)   Sweet tone.... mmm  (info+specs)

     I am currently attending Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA, and you can find me at Virginia Beach every weekend...  (just kidding... lol)

 Charlie's specs & info
     Charlie is a Squier Bullet Stratocaster that was left to me by my uncle, Charlie.   He and my aunt used to take care of me when I was little and I would always ask him to play and sing "Sittin on the Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding, on his guitar.   Well, about 2 years ago...Charlie was diagnosed with cancer...   When he first got sick, I went over to see him and re-string his guitar for him but he was too sick to play it...   He couldn't use his hands...   But I strung it nonetheless and then I played it for him.   It made him so happy...   A few months later, Charlie passed away and he left me his guitar.   R.i.P.

Vintage-style tuners

 Oreo's specs & info
     Oreo is my black and white Fender Telecaster.   I named this guitar Oreo because its black finish and white pickguard reminds me of an Oreo cookie.   (LOL)  But it has a rich, balanced tone.   Not too trebly, and not too bassy - It's just right.

2 single coil pickups
3-way selector switch
made between 1984-1987
Gotoh tuners
Maple fretboard

 My Main Guitar's specs & info
     My main guitar is an Alvarez Classic.   I don't have a name for this guitar yet and it deserves one.   If you have any suggestions, e-mail me.   Anyways, this guitar is my main one because the tone is just so damn good

2 single coil pickups, 1 humbucking pickup (SSH)
Pearloid pickguard

Basically that's pretty much it.  Oh yeah, did I mention that I play guitar?      My friend Jimi
