Leo Fender’s Birthday

Today, August 10th, is Leo Fender’s birthday; he would have been 107 years old.  I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of Fender guitars but you have to respect the man for what he created!  Anyway, as a small birthday tribute, here’s a picture of my Fender guitar – it’s not a typical Fender but that’s part of its charm.

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
