    Hey guys, I see a lot of familiar names still here. Hopefully someone will remember me! Life has had me on an adventure for the last several years. Started a family 8 years ago got married soon after, bought 4 motorcycles and 3 cars, Switched jobs and more or less got on with life. Man it's been nuts!

    I finally decided it was time to get back into playing since things had calmed down a bit and the first thing I intend to do is bring my old DLX-2800 back to life! I took it apart years ago with the intent of building it back up but life just got in the way. Amazingly I threw some strings on it and it plays just like I remember. Even more amazing the neck is still arrow straight!

    I'll put up another thread for that build and probably a few others since I need to rewire everything and don't have too much experience there. I know there are a few options with pots, pickups and caps. I'm probably a bit rusty at this point.

    Anyway... I'm glad to be back.

    Thanks guys! I don't know that I'll be very interesting to watch work. I'm as impatient as ever! Hopefully you guys can keep me in check and I don't rush it!

    Hahahahaha.... Thanks man. I'm sorry it's been so long. It's been a long road with a lot of crazy twists and turns. Some good... some bad. Generally speaking I've been VERY fortunate. It's crazy how things change faster than you can imagine!

    Here is a few current pics. It has a few scratches on the back that will need to be buffed out but generally speaking it's still in pretty good shape! 0c758b545fdf2ef94846efac2064bed6.jpg 3dfc98d45172755c61713fa300dead3f.jpg c72f1091af96ddc0a50fd3ce01f329d5.jpg

    AGF is like riding a bicycle . . . you never forget how, and you run the risk of having your balls busted.
