Was just thinking, what's the chance of maybe starting up a Gear Review section in melband, ala Harmony Central style. I thought it would be good for people to be able to share and discuss their reviews/experiences with guitars, effects, amps, etc. Any takers?

Awesome idea.

Unfortunately each thread will start with (1) an indepth review of why the person paid money for the gear and why it is the best thing in the world and then (2) people saying what a fag the person is for buying etc.

Too true, as is the case with pretty much any thread started on this website. However, I think it would still be interesting to discuss gear with 'real' people, instead of the reviews that are usually written by beginners, or some 'pro' who instantly dismisses a piece of gear because it doesn't compare to their $4000 Vai. You know what I mean...

No sir.
I wouldn't say I'm active in the jazz scene or anything, unfortunately...

Where would I know him from?

Aye, but I think the original intent was more along the lines of having it in a forum.

Well, I'm assuming that you might be a little older than some of us, but I could be wrong. Anyway, he was my music teacher at Croydon high a few years back and was quite a talented keyboard player and was into the more mellow scene you might say. Not sure if it's still going, but he was in a band called Mack.
