Hi to All here........

Very happy to see a home grown site. I'm sure this will benefit us Canucks well.
My name is Pete Faragher from Scarborough. I've been playing guitar since grade three(1964). I play semi-pro now in a Classic rock quintet. I am a Production Designer for a living and am involved in a lot of the Canadian music shows on TV (Juno awards, Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, Live 8, Canada's Walk of Fame, Canadian Idol, Gemini Awards etc. etc.) But my love is and always been guitar playing.
My favorite guitar is a 1956 Strat I bought when I was in Grade Eleven. I still have it, play it all the time and other than frets it is all original.

Welcome Peter. I think I've seen your name over on the Gear Page a bit. That's an amazing list of gear, think I'm going to show it to my wife :) You've actually been playing guitar almost 30 years longer than I have, that's just not fair. Take care and drag out that old Blodwyn Pig album.

Hey there,
We're not too far apart, I live on the east side of Toronto right off the Greenwood subway. And strangely enough, i'm a graphic designer as well.. Where do you work at?

Welcome. Most impressive collection. You will have to show some pics, especially the Bakers.

And you're from Scarborough,... you have my condolences. ;)

Obviously they pay you way too much for what you do.:D
Nice to see you here, and I`m not too far from you either. I think perhaps a Toronto area jam is in order. I`d like to see/hear some of that gear in action.

What? All these guitars and no Squier? :D :D That's a lot of equipment (and a lot of experience). And it looks like you've got a great *day job* too. Life's been good. Welcome to the forum :wave:
