Well..Greethings from Quebec. Where to start, an online friend introduced me to this site. So far so good..:)

let me start by appologising about my english, i'm french canadian and doing my best to write in english.

I'm a former graphic designer turned 3D Animator / VFX artist for either film or TV series. I realy enjoy my work, but back injuries are forcing me to do less and less computer work, who knows what i'll do next.

As a hobby...winter time is making replicas..:)..and summer time, GOLF, stupid addictive sport realy. Got to blame the Scotts for this one..:), but it gets me outa the office.

into VH obviously, and lots of other 80's metal band. wich was the era of my late teens and early 20's. Greath time to have grown up....Pre-AIDS..:)..can someone say AMEN for that! ;)

i'm also realy into gear when i can get it. My axes these days are 87 Strat, 2007 SG, Gibson LP 2003, custom Made Telecaster. Fender Blues Junior and Marshall Studio 15 are my main amps these days. i don't need power..i need good tone and a pedal board that keeps changing naturally.

I also have a another Franky in the work and a 5150. but still waiting for some parts.

that's about it i guess..:) i love talking gear and exchanging ideas and tips on the subjet basicaly.

Na..could'nt see them unfortunaly. i'm in Sherbrooke, about 2hrs from the bell center. Unless a show is on week-end, it's a real bitch to do a run to montreal and get back here around 3am and work the next say. i'm not 18 anymore..ahaha

You know, Franksters (another Roth Army member and good friend of mine) drove down to TO and back with another friend just to see them. Then, he saw them with us here again and last summmer, drove (up and back) to Québec city at the 400 years celebrations and saw them there for a third time... He's crazy (and rich) like that!

Who is the fan that introduced you to this forum, I mean is he/she a Roth Army member?

yeah...it's not a money thing..but i had a majot back surgery..so driving is a bit of an issue in longue distance. and then sitting down for 3 to 4 hrs. and comming back. it's hard to plan ahead. As for the introduction to the site, it was Don Corleone.

PS...saw your pict in your profile..i'm sure you've been told this before..but DAMN you fine to use an American expression..ahahaha

Nothing worse than having back issues and then being stuck in a vehicle.

Truth be told, I can't speak for Jhale or Matt White but both of those guys are really cool.

I can say we love everything VH and I personally am not of fan of Eddie's thugs shutting down people for reproducing his shit. I mean if you think about it, his guitar is a fucking Strat replica, to begin with.

I can't see anyone here giving you a hard time about posting your builds.
You'll be surprised how many people may be interested in them.

From everything I've read........if a dude has a good tongue, the groove will follow.

Because of your unername, and I really don't know the mayor of Detroit.
I remember thinking "This guy is unusual for a VH fan but let's not generalize"!
And because of the suit and hat... I thought you where trying to do the "pimp thing"... :hee:
