    Hi all,

    I found TDPRI a few days ago whilst looking for some advice about refinishes and decided to join.

    I'm not much of a guitar player, despite having been trying for the last twenty years, but have finally managed to let go of my hang-up and begin to enjoy playing. I hadn't touched a guitar in about four years but a friend of mine bullied me into having a jam with him a few months back and I enjoyed it so much I dusted off my guitars and felt the old familiar buzz again.

    Guitars are like regrets, in that I've had a few. Well, I say a few - probably around forty, but that would be nothing more than a guess. Currently I have:

    A 1989 Les Paul Custom
    A 1991 Les Paul Standard
    A 1958 Les Paul Junior CAaH RI from around 2000-ish
    A 1966 SG Junior
    An Ibanez ICHRG Giger Iceman
    A Modern Player Strat
    A Tanglewood acoustic (can't remember which model)
    A Korean Epiphone Sheraton
    A mid-1990's (I think) Mexican Tele (much modded)
    A Blacktop Baritone Tele
    A Squier Telecaster Custom (much hacked about by the previous owner; this one is being refinished and modded) which I bought "accidentally" after starting to play again.

    In the past, Tele-wise, I've had lots. Ones that stick in my mind are a 1965 which had been utterly battered but sounded brilliant, a US HH that I never quite clicked with, a 1977 that had been badly "Nashvilled" and I sorted out (stupidly sold that one and shouldn't have) and an early-2000's MIJ Paisley, which I definitely shouldn't have sold. Hindsight, eh?

    As you may have guessed, I love a Telecaster. There are vague plans afoot to build myself a partscaster soon, as I've really enjoyed the build that I'm doing on the Squire. I'm not a full-on guitar nerd, but I hopefully will have something to add to the forum.

    Thanks very much,

    JRK

    Hi guys,

    Thanks very much for the welcome. I'll see about getting some pictures etc sorted. I assume NGD is New Guitar Day?

    I'll do a step-by-step of the Squier rebuild if folk will be interested.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome, everyone- it's much appreciated.
