    Making Do - How have folks gotten by on a tight budget?

    Whatever it takes! In Denmark we have some education support which is for basic living while study is happening. Being + 18 I could put gear investments on monthly payments and that worked well. Still a firm stable income is needed when you do no longer apply for education support. So...

    Oh god were do I begin? At first it was thrash metal back in 1991 when I started playing electric and I had to figure it out myself. The only music store I eventually became a great customer at knew nothing or could advice on what to use. So it was a alot of trial and errors with guitars...

    10 Year Gear Challenge...Bring it on!

    I have had this homebuild Stratocaster since 1995 or so with Schecter ash body dated September 1977, Fender Eric Clapton signature neck 1990 and Fender CS69 1998 pickups. So far only 3 upgrades. The last time was 2014 where the most physical change was to Fender US gold hardware.

    Not too loud or too much right now. While December finally brought me a nice Mesa/Boogie 295 poweramp which can be counted on being very rare in Denmark I still have to get cabinets of choice and retube it as that still has original '90s powertubes in. But I realized that the recording outputs...
