    Hey guys, long time reader first time poster here. Been reading a lot around here about 5e3 kit builds. Finally took the jump and ordered up a Mojotone kit and a Weber 12A125a. It seemed like a good idea to stop haunting amp forums and start doing something. Gotta start it somewhere, right? So I´ll most likely be the one asking stupid questions after a while :)

    Anyway, about myself, I´ve mostly been in the Les Paul side of town but now I have two great tele´s, one is a ´52 Butterscotch replica with custom shop Pups. The other (now main) one is a ´88 black American tele with rosewood neck and Kinman Pups. Oh yeah and a red Washburn HB-35 with push-pull coil split Tonerider Pups is there somewhere :) and my old ever loving Gibby sits around in it´s case.

    Looking forward to chat with you guys

    I know it's a guitar forum. But I have to ask, are you excited for the World Cup? Not even sure if you enjoy soccer or not, but people have to be excited Iceland qualified.

    Welcome and enjoy things here. There's a lot of helpful, knowledgeable folks here.

    Welcome to the TDPRI.

    I'm sick of my life and need to get away. Would you recommend Iceland as a place to live?

    Welcome! I'm another wanting to visit Iceland. Seems to be a popular destination these days. About a week ago I went to google "Best time to visit Iceland". By the time I had "Best time" typed in, "Best time to visit Iceland" popped up as the 5th on the list.

    Just visited Iceland in April, what a beautiful country you have! I didn’t see all of it, but we spent a week exploring and absolutely loved the scenery, the people and the cuisine.

    Welcome to the forum! (I literally posted my welcome thread this morning too haha).

    LP's and Tele's... yup... I'm in that boat. My favorite guitars hands down.

    BTW, I'm sure you get this a lot. But I LOVE your country. Been there a couple times.. proposed to my wife there.. drove around half the country, and planning on another upcoming trip to drive around the rest. It's my dream to live there one day. Iceland is 1 out of 2 of my favorite places on this planet. Indeed, I'm sure you recognize my Avatar.

    Iceland, spectacular! How cool! Cleveland now has a Wow hub and supposedly tickets to Iceland for 99$. Ive been thinking of taking the trip just for the fun of it!

    Do it!!! That is ridiculously cheap.... as soon as we had direct flights to Iceland from Edmonton, I was there. Was not the least bit disappointed. Most of my travelling before that was limited to Asia and North America, but Iceland really really left a mark on me.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!
    Sure, you should come over especially since the flight is cheap. It can be a really nice place :) I agree on the scenery, it can be stunning. I travel quite a bit for work and have travelled domestically a lot too in my free time and still I often find something new and amazing that stops me in my tracks and I just go "Wow...!" And if you drive for 20-30 minutes, you get a new scenery, equally stunning! Don´t know if I would recommend moving here though, the weather can be brutal and the winters are often dark and gloomy and we have a hard time maintaining a functional government, but the reward is nice. Everyone here is thrilled about the World Cup qualification, I´m not big fan of soccer myself but man! was I proud of my boys! We´re quite full of ourselves at the moment :)
