Hello from a soon to become offset guitar owner :)

Post by Gruffeljos » Tue Jun 09, 2020 2:18 am

Hi all,

I've been lurking on this forum for years and years but never actually bought an offset guitar.
Initially being inspired by Jimi Hendrix thanks to my dad who used to play Hendrix over and over in the car, I soon got into alternative / grunge / noiserock which was pretty obvious as a 90s rebellion kid (born late 1978). My first guitar was a very cheap Strat copy by Hohner. The only one I could afford from the local shop as a teenager and it looked like the one Jimi Hendrix played :D

Later on, I moved into hardcore and (groove)metal territory like Helmet, Fugazi, Pantera,… and bought me a Jackson Rhoads. When I started to lose interest in heavy guitars I sold the whole lot to buy me years later a second hand London City Spitfire. My musical interest went back to the (early) 90s vibes and with growing up I started to appreciate some softer guitar playing. Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, J Mascis, Frusciante, Ian McKaye are of a big influence and recently very much digging that postpunk Fontaines DC / Idles tone.

Because short of cash I sold everything guitar related (complete rig, cables included) a couple of years ago, I only kept my acoustic Martin. Now finally arrive at the point I can afford me some decent gear again. Just scored a second hand Orange Rockerverb 50W and played some offset models in various guitar shops. Still making up my mind what offset to buy but very soon to become (finally) an offset guitar owner 😊

Thanks for all the interesting reads here and happy to join this board !
Josh
