Currently bored blues/rock guitarist looking to have a good time in a band. Am looking for anything from casual to medium commitment. Any commitment that will take away from my work or college I will have to turn down.
Classical piano background with a large understanding and application of music theory.
Guitar enthusiast with experience modifying instruments. (currently working on a 100-year old cabinet grand piano). Modifying and collecting strange instruments is a great hobby of mine. Will do setups and adjustments on band equipment if desired.
Instruments: Mostly electric and acoustic guitar, with piano and electric bass following. Can quickly learn a harmonica part if needed, and could most likely hold my own with a drum kit if it were needed.

Influences range from ancient blues dudes to modern rock, with mainly just an affinity for great guitar and in general great instrumentation. Anything with a good soundscape is what I will put in my ears.
I have capable live rigs for electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and keyboard. Guitar rig is most capable - I can arrange it in multiple different sizes and configurations with backups and spares ready to go. Bass rig is DI via XLR. I also have a good mic stand and some cheap cardioid microphones if the occasion arises, but by no means do I consider them a great vocal rig.
I own 13 guitars: 10 6-string electrics of varying pickup combos and wiring setups, 1 doubleneck 12-string/6-string, 1 5-string bass with active pickups, and 1 7-string acoustic with Fishman electronics.
I love my guitars and each one tends to be unique or recognizable in some way.
Main guitar amp is a Fender Mustang IV, which is a 2X12 solid state modeling amplifier. I also own some smaller practice amplifiers and a Peavey Max 112 bass amp.
EFFECTS: My electric guitar effects rig can go through a few configurations. I have a smaller pedalboard with a distortion, delay, tuner, wah, A/B box, and a looper pedal. I also have a talkbox, a larger multi-effects board, and I can do a huge number of effects through my modeling amp, which has built-in presets and USB connection to my computer.
OTHER EQUIPMENT AND NOTES:
I also own a lower-end keyboard that I use mostly for practice, but can be rigged for live events. I own 2 low-end vocal mics that are also generally used for practices, and I own a good boom stand in case I need to use them for a gig. I've got an electric violin (which I might learn to play eventually) and a couple of harmonicas as well.
I also have all the cables, accessories, stands, cases, etc to facilitate my equipment in different rigs, and I have a car with plenty of cargo room to lug it all around.
