Hi, Everyone! First - I want to thank for allowing me to join TDPRI. I've read a lot of threads here, but never decided to participate in discussion... until yesterday. Although my Tele is not a traditional Tele (Modern Player, which currently undergoes modification), it's a pleasure to play. Always been a fan of Tele players: Steve Cropper, Andy Summers, Roy Buchanan, Alex Lifeson. My first guitar was an copy of Les Paul (Flame LP VI), but I found it too muddy and chose something with more clarity.
