    New to the forum. Been playing for over 50 years, and although I've owned a few Telecasters, I've honestly had difficulty bonding with one. I've been primarily a Strat guy for many years, but recently stretching out a little. I bought a Jaguar and a Rick 360 last year, and am enjoying the new sounds. I came across a Telecaster that just spoke to me, and I had to have it. I'm a big classic country fan, and love playing music that was made on a Telecaster. So far, this one is keeping my attention. It plays and sounds great, and couldn't look more "hillbilly deluxe". I'm loving this one. It may make me a Tele convert. Love the forum so far.

    Welcome to the club! Great looking guitar! They say there are two type of people from East Tennessee: 1) those who live there and 2) those who wish they still did. Count me in the second group. I grew up right outside Knoxville.

    Welcome, Mike!

    We have a Cabin due south of you, in NC and we see the TN line right out the window (and light pollution from Sweetwater and Maryville)

    But I'm writing this from the Memphis area.

    Nice Sparklecaster!

    Friendly place you have here! Thanks for all the warm welcomes. My user name is a carry-over from The Gear Page, where I've been a member for many years. The phrase is burned into my brain from hearing it so often over the years. It all ran together as one word: "itstooloudMike". I really never knew what it meant. :rolleyes:

    You wouldn't believe how many minutes of confusion this caused...

    I was like "Wait... What?!" Then it finally dawned on me. Still laughing about it. I didn't even realize you were on here.
