    What do you like to play and what equipment do you like?

    I like most types of music and I play guitar, bass & banjo.

    I have a Martin Ellipse XC1T and a Little Martin that I use when I travel. I'm currently taking fingerpicking lessons (aka Dust in the Wind by Kansas).

    I also have a Deering Sierra banjo (bluegrass) that I play Scruggs style.

    For my church band, I play the bass. It's a Tobias Growler 5 string. I also have a 5-string Michael Kelly Fretless Acoustic bass.

    I like most types of music that have some type of guitar in it. My favorite is progressive rock. I play a 4 string and a 6 string bass guitar and also the keyboards. I have been playing piano since I was 4 and the bass since I was 12.

    I don't feel justified in calling myself a guitarist, so I'll go with string plucker instead.

    I own a 1996 Ovation Celebrity (shallow bowl in black), and a 1995 Aria Pro II Fullerton (Red and Black Strat copy) that I have modified with EMG select single coil humbuckers, and a better pick-up selector switch and tone and volume pots. Also put a set of grover 18:1 tuning machines on in place of the 8:1 plastic pieces of crap that came on the guitar.

    My next project will be to build a thinline tele replica from scratch, which I intend to finish in an electric blue sunburst.

    I like to learn new instruments, but I tend to get bored when the learning curve gets steep to move past an intermediate level. As a result, I can play a number of instruments passably well (or at least I could with a week's refresher). Instruments include: sax, bass, drums, guitar, fiddle, harmonica, autoharp, dulcimer, tinwhistle, piano, choral voice (if that counts).

    Other instruments I'd like to learn someday: mandolin, banjo, steel guitar, bagpipes

    Skins baby!!!

    I have a Mapex pro M fusion kit with a burnt sierra laquer finish. The kit itself is made out of maple and basswood. I use only Paiste cymbals. personally i like the Signature series. i use coated Emporer 2 ply heads.

    I listen to and play mostly classic rock but i like some new stuff too.

    Sounds like a great project. My son and I just finished a Gibson 60's SG replica. It would have been cheaper just to buy one, but it was a lot of fun. It's not the one pictured in my profile.......that's a 1972. I like your choice of the Tele Thinline! It is a fast neck guitar!
