No excuses, I should have done this a couple of years ago…but Finally I give proper tribute to the forum by becoming a Charter member.

A big, big thanks to the people who have helped me get the tone I have always dreamed about. Especially to the AGF Members who are open minded and down to earth. As they have given so much of their knowledge to all of us.
I would especially like to thank:
Doug Young- Always pleasant to listen to his masterful guitar playing. But more so, his wisdom in recording has been of upmost importance to myself. I have learned about Microphones, preamps and room treatment from him. Thank you so much Doug, Kudos to you!

Wade Hampton- Wade is an encyclopedia when it comes to guitar trivia and some good common sense. As he self proclaims, a southern Gentleman(although he lives in Alaska!) Always enjoy his responses. For being a mentor to us all, Kudos to you!

Vindibonal1 - He got me to try Round Core Strings…And round core strings have rocked my world. They are the final piece in the tonal qualities I have been searching for. Vindibonal1 is another person who reaches out to help other members…no matter what the feedback. His sole aim is to help. Kudos to you!

Michael Watts - one of the most pleasant personalties in the guitar world…like EVER! I have enjoyed all of your input on guitars, back and sides woods, tops and recording. We should take a lesson on your most hospital character. Kudos to you!
There have also been those members who have reached out behind the scenes to help out through personal messaging.
Aloha Chris & ChuckS - has taken lots of their time to share important information on recording, mics and room treatment with myself. I have read all of your information and appreciate your efforts. Thank you Guys-Kudos to you!
And then there is the Custom Shop side of the forum. Oh my, I never get tired of looking a new builds. Of hearing all the different opinions from the builders.
Stephen Strahm & Tony Vines built guitars and displayed some recordings using a different Rosewood than I had heard before.. Kudos to both of you for introducing me to Amazon Rosewood.
Mark Hatcher, Marc Beneteau, the Kinnaird’s, McKnight, Wilborn, Kostal, Tom Sands, Osthoff, Olson, Michael Bashkin, Sexauer, Spohn, Goodall, Thomas Rein…
and many more…thank for sharing your builds and knowledge with all of us! Kudos to all of you.
What I have learned on the forum:
Back and sides, Bracing materials, Top woods, Body Shapes, Tuners, bridge pins, Saddle material and specs, Strings, humidifiers, case humidifiers, Guitar Cases. All of these have given me the sound and the way to maintain that sound that I have been searching for All My Life!
It is so hard to remember everybody. Excuse me If I have left you out. In truth most everybody on the forum has given tiny bits of information that have been so helpful. Even those who are not always that pleasant..ha ha Kudos to all the AGF!
