I used to play in "garage bands" years ago... had a great time, but eventually life moved on and I gave it up. Now, 15+ years later, I thought I might take it up again as a hobby. (Like I don't have enough already.) I just bout a B.C. Rich Mockingbird ST (yes, I know, made in Korea, blah, blah) and an Acoustic B450mkii. Perhaps not what most of you would consider the ideal setup, but I like what I got, at least so far.
