Longtime luker just registered. Love the site.
Been playing for almost 30 years, not seriously till the last 15. Finally - FINALLY - after being in various bar bands, have one that focuses on Dead material.
I'm located in Washington, DC and have been playing a vintage'73 Tele Deluxe through a Tube Driver combo, but just bought a MC400 that I gigged with last week - pretty cool axe.
Well, now that I'm registered and all, I guess I can start in with the questions... and maybe even contribute an answer or two.
