Welcome Tom! This is a cool forum, lots to see, do, and think about.

What LP and PRS do you have? I've got a '78 LP Standard and an 89 PRS CE24. I love 'em both.

Thanks for the welcome,

Not from whitefish I'm about 200 miles East. I have a 2001 LP Classic and I just picked up a PRS se 245. I kinda live in the middle of nowhere (no dead fans) and have to order what I get. I'm impressed with the PRS though and someday would like to go try some out.

Welcome to the group.
I used to play a gig in Jordan, MT (maybe near you?) and lived in Red Lodge, MT most of the 80's.

Oh you're not in the middle of nowhere...a buddy of mine played a gig in Plentywood yesterday. That's a little closer to the middle of nowhere. I'm in Helena...not many Deadheads here but that's not stopping me from putting together a band with a Dead focus. Enjoy the forum.

Damn - Jordan MT!! That's more the central middle of nowhere I'm up north. I travel close to Plentywood on Tuesday (Glasgow) but we probably have as many places to get guitar strings here as they do in Plentywood... Zero. I was hoping to meet some MT people on this forum - I'm not a dead expert by any means but have been listening to them for longer than I'd like to admit. I've played with other people twice in the last 7 years and that was recently and had to travel to do it.

I'm going to say that they're aren't many. Helena seems to only have a handful. Montana is beautiful and you will learn to love it. Welcome to the Big Sky country!
