    I've not really driven anything of great excitement or speed. Probably something rubbish like a Rover 425 hire car. That shifted a little quicker than I expected, but nothing spectacular. I maybe got up to about 110mph.

    Although I did get to 'drive' a Hawk jet trainer, the same aircraft that the RAF use in the Red Arrows!! I was granted a back-seat ride in one about 10 years ago in Cyprus. The Hawk was towing a long banner that 2 Tornado's were using for target practice. I got to fly it out to the practice area, and then back to the airfield after they'd finished. Then the pilot treated me to some aerobatics, and even allowed me to throw in around, doing loops and rolls etc! A fantastic experience.

    Can you name one event in your life - one significant turning point - that was the largest contributer in making you become the man you are today?

    If so, what is it and why?

    Thanks for a good answer on my question. I will definitely stay away from 50000V.

    How did you first encounter this forum, and what made you a member of this community?

    It would probably be my RAF basic training pass out parade. Although I'd signed my life on the dotted line, I still wasn't 100% sure about what I'd done. The day was one of the proudest of my life, and I went on to complete 18 months of trade training. Without that moment I wouldn't have gone on to meet my wife, and wouldn't have my daughters.

    The RAF is obviously still a major influence in what goes on in my life today.

    I found the forum when I was looking for info on Seymour Duncan pickups before pulling the trigger on my G&L Legacy. I asked a few questions that were promptly answered, and helped in my decision to buy the guitar.

    I can't really remember the exact thing that made me stick around. I've always been very vary of internet forums, and often find they deteriorate into childish ranting, but the SDUGF isn't like that. I think I probably felt like a "proper" forum member when I gave out my first bit of advice and got a nice response because of it.

    This is still the first place I log in to when I come online, and having met/talked/msn'd various forum bro's away from the forum, it just reinforces the fact that this is one of the greatest little corners of cyberspace.

    I have just purchased a G&L Legacy off Ebay. I believe it has SD vintage alnico staggered pups fitted, and wired as on a traditional strat ie no tone control for bridge pup. Is there any reason that I can't rewire the guitar to the PTB setup that is standard on G&L guitars. I don't know whether the impedence of the SD pups differ from G&L's or if the pots are the same value, or even if I need to add capacitors to the circuit to get the PTB circuit. Also, would I still be able to fit a treble bleed mod to this setup up?
    Any help would be gratefully received.
    Cheers
    Here, as a bit of fun, appears to be the first post, in the first thread I started back in Feb 2005!

    So far, our plans are to emigrate to the Gold Coast in Australia. My wife is undertaking Open University courses with a view to becoming a physiotherapist. She'll hopefully complete this when we return to the UK, and by the time I am due to leave the RAF in 2012.

    If she completes this, it takes a lot of pressure off me, and should hopefully mean that I can pick and choose my job.

    Ideally I would like to work in a small music shop, and learn properly about setting up/modifying/building guitars, amps and pedals. Then if I become proficient enough then maybe I would start my own business and go into modding and building amps.

    Of course International Playboy or Rock Star would do also!!!

    It's funny that I left school and joined the RAF with no real idea of what I wanted to do, and now I surprise myself by having plans for the rest of my life!!!

    Have you ever been to Canada or the USA? If so, when and where? I know the RAF (and other UK military) does a lot of training in Canada.

    I have never visited that side of the pond. I would love to have the time and means to. There are a couple of friends of ours currently in Batus. I'd love to be able to take 6 months out and tour all around Canada and the US, but I don't think the RAF will be too keen!!

    Cool. Yeah, you're right this community is differing very positively in contrast to other forums..

    Post a recipe that you enjoy cooking. If you don't cook, post a picture of an African land mammal.
