    I lived in Jersey for many years. We spent summers in Tranquility until my parents sold the house on Staten Island and moved there full time. I lived in Swartswood 1968-79.

    Oh cool, well feel free to post a NGD on that one too, it may be a Gretsch forum but we're not biased.

    Welcome from a Canadian GT’r. I’ve been fortunate enough to play in NJ a few times over the years with some folks from the Red Bank area. Always had a good time in NJ, hope to get back there in the Fall.

    Cheers

    Hey Sam,

    Welcome!

    NJ is a great place to charter dive boats for north Atlantic wreck diving!

    Not to mention, the ''Rolling Rock'' is always cold!!

    Best,

    I love that pickup, I hardly ever play that guitar in the bridge position just because the staple top is so amazing.

    Never did any type of diving but I must admit I watch any show that deals with wreck diving. One of my other hobbies is railroads (model of course by I like the real ones) and there are a couple of locomotives off the coast of Long Branch that got pushed off during a storm in 1800's. Always wanted to visit them but if you put me in a dive suit people might think I'm a killer whale, so that's a no go :D

    Oh I realize that, but it tastes so much better in NJ, near the ocean.
