Wish I lived closer to you... I am 72 and have played guitar on & off most of my life. I have almost purchased a banjo many times. lol Have been in a few bands and like mostly oldies. The name of the last band was OBG (Oldies But Goodies). I just got a Line 6 Variax Standard. Loving it so far... The last amp I got is a Fender Mustang GT100. (a modeller). I am told I have way too many guitars. Maybe so, but I do enjoy working with and playing them. Nice to see there are other old farts like us, not giving up and still have fun doing something they enjoy.
Best wishes with your new end-ever, Dan
