    Growing up in the 70"s and 80's,, Bands like Kiss /Zepp/ Priest/ Maiden made me want to play. I bought a second hand Ibanez Paul copy and the infatuation started. I have other guitars but I started on the most beautiful guitar IMO.
    I have a 1969-70 Goldtop Deluxe that started me collecting about 12 yrs ago.
    Since then I have amassed nearly 60 guitars/ 3 basses/2 drum sets. I'm not homeless yet but I had to quit gassing or eat spaghetti alot.
    Well thats my story ..Glad to be here.
    Here is a few of my Pauls

    Welcome. I think I’m about the same age as you based on the music. I loved Deep Purple, LED Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, The Who, Linerd Skinnered, The Dead, Dixie Dregs (a great local band that started out as all (I believe) students at university of Miami and were in the jazz lab. I moved to the south Miami area in about 1975 and the music scene here has really exploded my love of music.

    Here are some pics of some of my gear


    Btw I live now, for around the last couple of decades in Weston, between Miami and fort Laudetdale what part of the
    state are you in ?

    Welcome aboard! I'm at 30 or so guitars. In Gainesville since the late 70's (in high school in Neptune Becah near Jax before that).
