    Hi, my name is Alex from Wetaskiwin, Alberta.
    I originally come from Italy, I'm 27 years old and I moved to Canada few years ago.
    I started playing guitar when I was 16.

    I own 10 guitars and 2 of them are TLs.
    I have a squier affinity that I repainted and swapped pickups with a set of hand wound pickups from Italy.
    My second tele is a Harley Benton Te-52.
    I'm waiting for my thirds tele that I ordered from Aliexpress with no logo on the headstock, that will be a modding platform.

    I've been browsing the forum for awhile and I finally decided to join
    I'll post photos of my guitars.

    I lived and worked in Canada from 1992-2003.
    The touring bar band I worked in was based out of Edmonton.
    There was a long running ad for a car/truck dealership that boldly stated “Cars are cheaper in Wetaskiwin”.
    Funny the stuff you remember.
    I truly miss Canada, it’s cool, tough, kind people and it’s incredible beauty!

    I'm afraid to say it but everything here is more expensive than it was a few years back. Unfortunately even guitars ahaha
    But you're welcome anytime :)

    I honestly wish I had a telecaster sooner, they're so good, I love the simplicity of a telecaster :)

    Hello from another Expat in Québec. Since you’re in the prairies, try to catch a Corb Lund show if you haven’t already.

    Welcome.

    So you need to know Italian, French, and English - or only two of the three?
