    Hi everyone.

    I've lurked TDPRI for a while and have been relatively active on TGP but have enjoyed a lot of the subject matter here and decided it would make sense to join up. I've always loved the telecaster though I've really only ever owned a Squier that I modified many times. I've owned most of the classic shapes of guitars and yet the telecaster has always been one of those "ah I get it" guitars.

    I wanted to join up to show a project I've been working on and hopefully glean some information from some of the wiser folks here. Community seems cool!

    I'm a heavy equipment operator as a living and have played guitar for 13 years (Though it seldom shows haha). My dad taught me how to play and still knows a butt load more about guitar stuff than I do. I have a wife, a dog, and a beat up old 4runner that's developed into something I love and hate all at the same time.

    Look forward to learning from you guys,

    Welcome Alberta! I lived in Calgary for 10 years and Jasper for 8, so I know a little about your neck of the woods. Spent 15 years in B.C. too, but that's another story. :)
    Nice "tele"
    I like 4x4's too! :cool:

    Hey back! Another Cochranite here. I live in West Valley area and I’m a teleholic who likes to build and fix as well. Maybe we’ve seen each other play around town???
    Welcome.

    No way!

    I live in Bow Ridge. Hard to say as I’m not playing out right now- at the Alliance church yes as one of the main lead guitarists but I’ve been hoping to get involved with the local scene more!

    Would be cool to sync up!
