    Howdy all! My name is Steve and I recently became addicted to building Tele's. I've seen the forums many times, just never posted, so thought I would introduce myself (like I'm somebody ....lol).

    I have been "playing" guitar for 30+ years, but just recently started building. I started with a few strats, then the Tele bug bit me. Now I have so many to support I'm gonna start a go-fund-them account! :D

    Look forward to conversing and learning from you guys. :)

    Love this community. I recently decided to create an account as well.

    Lurkers step forth from the shadows!

    So - just build, or build and sell?

    Thanks guys!

    I build and sell too. I have my own brand and logo, and if the neck doesn't say "Fender", most people don't want it. I sell some bodies and have sold some guitars, but I build first because I want to, second because I need to sell some bodies. I use the old school method of nitro and lacquer still, I just like it a lot better, and I HATE the new thick poly bodies.

    No, I'm not in Festus, Mo. But I'm close. :cool:

    Here's a few of mine. Hate to not show anything ....

    Howdy!

    Wonder if we "know" each other? I am acquainted with a lot of people and musicians, but don't play or jam with anyone at the moment.

    It wouldn't be through music. I wouldn't call myself a musician. I know a few chords. That's about it unfortunately.
