Hi. Long time reader, first time poster.... but that's bc I just joined. I've read and learned a lot from this forum in the past and thought it was time to join and give back to the community. I own a few guitars but my pride and joy is my 72 Deluxe RI - which I play through a vox AC4. I'm a self-taught guitarist so I'm not the best... I can't play lead to save myself! But I play by ear, can sing and have been in several bands over the last 12-or-so yrs, so I guess I can't be that bad. I've had a recent "incident" with my Tele which is what prompted me to join the forum and share the story. I plan on posting about it another day. Bye for now!
