    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!

    Welcome. Looking forward to the story - unless this is one of those "It just busted into pieces!" cringe stories...

    Almost relocated to Toowoomba in 1990 to pursue my cotton breeding career. Spent a week there and the next week explored our way out to Naramine, then on to Queensland.

    Beautiful country and wonderful people. However, the industry people that I had first met here turned to a much different attitude when I re acquainted myself with them, at home in Australia.
