    In a decision you may live to regret, I have been generously allowed to join you all here at TDPRI. I have to say, with all the usual suspects from S-T here as well as my recent Tele purchase, I feel right at home.
    Last summer I purchased my first Tele (always been a Strat/Casino guy) and immediately took to it like a duck to water. You might say it was a telekinetic experience...
    Anyway, glad to hang out with my old friends and hoping to meet some new ones.
    Here are a few pix of my new Tele, "Bluebelle"...LPB MiM Tele. Love this thing!

    I picked up a new amp at the same time as the Tele (Super Champ X2) ans shortly afterwards, a New HH Jag and a Danelectro 12, but those are stories for another day.
    Thanks for having me here!

    Nice Tele!

    I am also grateful to be revisiting this fine forum. Although a Strat has been my go-to for years, I feel that the Tele was sort-of Leo's Les Paul. I can't find a pic, but I have a nice butterscotch Tele with maple board and black plate. :)

    This cross-pollination from ST has been hilarious.

    You’ll fit right in here; it’s all about the madness:eek:

    Welcome!...many of us here (myself included) are former/recovering Stratocaster players. I still own one, although it hasn't been out of the closet in ages.....just no need. But be warned....we can have some pretty extreme opinions here! ;).....for example: where do you stand on tonewood? (ducking)

    Be aware that you joined at a bad time, but have patience.

    The site has been having problems.

    I gotta ask - over on ST, do you guys have animated discussions about BBQ, the best way to cook a steak, cornbread, cast iron skillets, etc.?

    Food is always a popular subject here on the Bad Dog.

    Yes, BBQ has come up more than once...
    "Animated"? LOL...it goes far beyond that, my friend. We're talking Monty Python land. Come on over and hang out. That way you'll have some refuge when this place goes down next time.
    Strangely enough, cast iron skillets have never come up to the best of my knowledge.

    Thanks for the invite, I'll take a look. Actually I've been there, but only when a google search on assorted subjects I know nothing about (which covers a lot of territory) led me to ST.
