    HI

    another newbie here, thought I would have a crack at building a guitar, although I haven't really played since high school, I now have the time get into music and the guitar.
    I'm a fly in fly out miner living in Perth and working in the pilbara, on a 2 weeks on 1 week off roster, so flat out getting some tuition to get me back up to speed.
    I've bought an STA - 1 ash body, maple neck, and after unpacking it, I have already learnt so much, but looking forward to learning a heap more..

    Welcome to the forum Muddy!
    Nr 1: Red Widow LP-1MQ (Finished) ->Diary<-

    I've always played every amp I've ever had full up, because rock and roll is supposed to be played loud. Also, that's how you get your sustain.
