I have been a loyal follower since I was a kid! My friend's dad had a vintage YBA in the basement which I first noticed at age 8. I thought it sounded cool then! I had no idea what I was in for! I picked up the guitar at age 14 (after 10 years of piano), played a variety of junky amps until I could afford my own Traynor(s)!
Thanks for equipment that's built to last and sounds better to my ear then... those "other brands."
