How many of Ye Olde HCEG Gang are still here?

Yeah, so HC committing seppuku many moons ago hasn't killed my GAS. It only got worse. Apparently this place rose from the digital ashes several months ago and I just discovered that a week or two ago.

Are there any familiar faces around here anymore? Anybody shocked to see me? LOL

I joined around 15 years ago. Just started getting back into playing guitar as my interest comes in waves. 

Was pretty much a lurker, but back in the day this was the best forum anywhere! Its a shame what happened, but that's life I guess. Check in here now and again, but it just seems so slow.

I've just realised this place still exists.  Think it must be quite a few years since I was last here!

Seriously. Remember when we used to have to bump threads after just a couple hours to keep them on the first page?

I joined just before the last wave of the party. You could literally set there and watch a thread  drop down the page

I miss CSM, Bb with his 120+ Les Pauls that always elicited jealous responses, and a couple of others. I was always more of a HCAG person, though.

Yes indeed I do! And there were so many interesting threads. A lot of very talented people making and repairing.

I even think there was a 'live' drawings at times for items people would donate. Never won anything though!

The red Strat build was epic for the girl in Europe.  

Funt times!

Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. I wonder whatever happened to her.

I think the story was published in a Guitar magazine, and I also seem to recall there was some pictures of her with the guitar. Thats all I remember.

I generally only lurk here these days.  It's really sad how MF/GC destroyed something that was beautiful...

One person gave a neck, another a body (wish I could remember who now - search seems borked that far back) I donated a set of PUs and Ratae C put it all together & shipped it. I didn't see those pix, sadly.

I've been here about 20 years now, first came for OLGA, but dates and posts got scrambled & lost in the various changes.
