    Hi,

    I've been lurking on this forum for a while and decided to join. This site comes up in results with almost any guitar question you can google!

    So, about me, I'm a Tele "player" that continues to try :).

    Gear wise, my avatar pic has my tele. I bought the body quiet a while ago. I specked out the neck, control panel and pickups. I added those on myself, which was a great learning experience and some of the threads here really helped, so thanks for that! I practice on a Vox AC4TV and a fender 57 champ reissue for low volume playing as I only play at home.

    Excited to be hear and to meet you all!

    Thanks!
    I got the body a few years ago online. It was listed as a 75, but who knows, and if it is something they just reliced and sold as older, I would take 2 more! Reasonable price and it has a very natural wear plus I dig the yellowing from time. I had a nice 2006 MIM tele, good year for the MIM in my opnion, so I figured I could do a body swap (the paint on the MIM is pretty good, but also real thick and it simply showed any dings, chips etc in a very negative way. Eventually I changed the neck to a warmoth, as I wanted a different radius and also I was curious about play raw on the goncalo alves wood. I really like the feel of the goncalo.

    Awesome to have people in the area! I just left Cambridge a few months ago and I am now in North Reading. I loved living in Kendall Square, but the rent rises! North Reading has been great and now that I am not in an apartment I can play a lot more and louder!
