Hey all 👋 New member here, just saying hi... An occasional reader of the forum over the last few years - thanks to everyone who's shared wisdom here down the years, I've definitely benefited! - but thought I might just sign up as I have questions to ask...

Currently owner of... [stops to count] maybe about ten Strats, from MIM Standard (standard and modded) and Player to Classic Players, to American Performer and US Professional... And I've been through the same again, and then some, in the last few years! Having learned on a knock-off strat copy back in the day, I was then a Gibson guy for a long time. I have space in my heart for both, not least as I tend toward the rockier, heavier, higher-gain side of things... But having got back into guitar gear in a big way about five years ago, I've just found strats massively addictive. So here I am. 😎 Hi!

Not what it used to be since the area got developed
I know. I was there in mid-April...but only for about a half-hour. That was all the time I had with my 13-year-old grandson, who is not at all turned on by guitars and gear. He was patient, but I knew he wanted to be elsewhere.
London is very high on my bucket list. And especially Denmark St.!!!!


Still playing. Still learning!

Welcome to S-T! I always lived south of the Thames but I worked In Charing Cross Road, just round the corner from Denmark Street, until 1983. Now you mention it, there are a surprising number of 'Greens' in London…
