    Hey there,

    I'm new here. I live in the Netherlands, in a town near Amsterdam. I've been playing and singing for a while. But music's always been just a hobby. I like all sorts of music, but my favorite kind is blues. My current guitar is a candy apple red MIM Tele. I am considering changing the pickups for a pair of Fender Original Vintage pups and maybe getting a three saddle bridge, while I'm at it. Not sure yet, though. Might just trade it in for something else, at some point. Another Tele, of course. : )

    Anyway, I'm here to learn and read everything there is to know about my favorite guitar. And I'm pretty sure I've come to the right place. Btw, are there any more Dutch people, here on TDPRI?

    Take care!

    Ydwen

    Nice Tele, by the way. I've always liked the looks of the "block saddles" over the bent steel saddles.

    Hey there, Ydwen.

    Nice axe! Been thinking about going with a low profile bridge plate lately, I keep bruising my fingers on that darn vestigial ashtray lip on the bass side.

    What kind of blues have ya been listening to? I’ve been on a Janiva Magness and Bobby Rush kick lately, here.

    Thanks for the nice welcome, guys!

    Well, lots of stuff, really. From Roy Buchanan to (early) Eric Clapton (I'm currently reading 'Motherless Child') and some JJ Cale, Jim Campilongo, Robben Ford and Mike Bloomfield. But I also like SRV, Rory Gallagher, the three Kings, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and many other great artists.


    Haha, it's pronounced the way my Kiwi (NZ) relatives pronounce 'Edwin'. : )

    Welcome to the forum.
    I've been to Amsterdam a couple of times and quite a few Dutch towns and cities. Stroopwaffles, herring, patatje oorlog...yum.
