My name's Cory but folks call me Cor, Big Cor and Cojo. If ya holler at me in town, I'll respond to all three.
Married, three kids, disabled vet, music/guitar GEEK!!! Just now getting back into playing after a 5 year hiatus. Started playing when I was a young pup. Grew up in a musical family and surrounded by musical people. 'Uncle Chuck' (Del Shannon to the rest of the world) was a close family friend. He gave me my first guitar and guitar lessons when I was in (4th or) 5th grade. A few years later he gave me a Tom Scholz Rockman v 1 (1982) and I was off like a rocket. Played in a small truckload of bands in the '90s. Gave up bands and start recording when the Roland VS1680 and ACID Pro v1.0 came out. When our youngest daughter was born it was a little too much for Mama to handle on her own so I packed everything up and put it all under the bed until a few months ago. Small time luthier/repair guy for several years but closed up shop when I was unable to keep up with the workload because of health issues.
I've avoided PRS for too many years and finally purchased my first PRS SE245 a few days ago. I've been in love with them as I've played several that came into the shop. Just... The "Oh My God!" factor was in full effect. Just astounding instruments. Last year I injured my fretting hand (Avoid try to play Shawn Lane licks on long scale instruments and 12 gauge strings at all cost) and I had a choice... Stop playing guitar for a year or got easy. I chose to go easy. Short scale lengths and light strings. When I got into shorter scale instruments I started looking at Les Paul and such. Went to a local store and played a used 245. That was it... I came home and ordered one from Sweetwater. Aaaaaaand... We're off! )
