My name is Mark and I've been playing guitar since I was around 15 years old, but I didn't start taking learning seriously until a couple of years ago at age 29. My first guitar was a Stratocaster, which I still have, and I journeyed to the world of the Les Paul two years ago. I've often read that one should own a Telecaster at some point, so I started looking into it. I discovered this board in my search for knowledge, and found it to be a great resource. I've been lurking ever since, but decided I might as well start posting as well.
