Hello

My name is Michon and I currently reside in Johannesburg South Africa.

I recently stated playing guitar again after a few years of not playing. Thus far I have been playing only 12TET fretted guitars, but I hope to add fretless guitar to my arsenal shortly. I already have an eligible fretted guitar lined up for the necessary modifications and will post a modifications thread as soon as I get started on the work.

Unfretted.com is a great website btw.

In the meanwhile, thank you for adding me to the forum and greetings!

Welcome Michon, I lived in ZA for three years, in Morningside, just North of Sandton, looking forward to seeing those mods!

Thank you jahloon.
 
I'm in Melville Jhb, so not very far from Morningside.

Are you back in the UK at the moment?

Congratulations on putting together such a nice site.

Yep, back in the UK since 1999, had a great time out there, spent a lot of time telling residents they were living in the best place in the world, when all they could do was moan about things, there are a whole load of worse places to live, wish I was back there... but I guess that's not possible.

Melville is pretty cool, I have friends there, Glynn & Anne Brookes.

Thanks. South Africa is a great place to stay, though it is the only place I have stayed for extended periods of time so I don't have any other reference.

If you return to SA now with a few quid you could be a Rand millionaire (i.e. the value of our currency has greatly diminished since 1999).

I don't know Glynn & Anne, but if I might meet them one day in Melville. If I do I'll be sure to mention you.
