I am a 48 year old father of 7, and have 11 grandchildren. After 20yrs in construction I have recently returned to college to obtain a nursing degree. My musical interests vary and include many genre. I own and play both acoustic and electric guitars, however, these days I tend to favor playing the acoustics.

My Guitars & Gear

Acoustics: Martin 000-15 & 00-16, Taylor 614CE LTD & NS24 LTD, Blueridge BR160, Epiphone Masterbuilt Dreadnought, Dobro Hound-Dog (round neck), Yamaha 12 string & FD02 dreadnought, Alvarez, Takamine, 2 Samick Parlor guitars, and a 1971 Spanish made classical. Electrics: G&L ASAT, '72 Thinline Tele, '94 Strat, Epiphone Emperor & Les Paul, Washburn Nuno Bettencourt & X-Series, and a late '50's no-name electric with phenomenal electronics for slide. I prefer Fender amps, of which I have several, both tube and solid-state. My string of choice is D'Addario and Fender Bullets (for the strat). Shure microphones (SM57 & SM58), and various other effects.
