    Hi everyone,

    Relative beginner who is yet to buy a guitar and amp.
    I say beginner because it's been so long since I played.
    I use to play/practice 1 hour x 3 nights a week between 98 and 02, then sporaticaly until 07. Life happened and I lost the passion. Sold my guitar and amp in 09 and have regretted it every since.
    Anyway I started getting the urge to play in August and had been looking at Fender Stratocasters, EVH Wolfgangs (previously owned a 98 Wolfgang Special), Les Pauls and dreaming of being good enough to justify spending that sort of money again.
    So I've started looking at Squiers and Epiphones, mostly Squier CV's, Deluxe's and Standards, which has lead me here.
    Although I am not adverse to buying an older model from the 80's or 90's.

    Cheers,

    Chris
