    I remember when this happened, when Paul stepped in to fill the void... Hard to believe it was 20 years ago, BUT I'm sure glad you did it!!! A big THANK YOU for doing it -- who would have thought it would morph into what it has become today!!

    This is the best discussion board I've seen. Thanks so much Paul for starting this invaluable (for so many reasons) resource!

    Paul
    Thank you for this place to meet, share and learn so much about guitars, Tele’s and life.

    Now please once and for all do you prefer brass barrels or strat style bridges?

    Well done Paul!

    I can only imagine what you had to sacrifice to give this living gift to all of us.

    Thank you, Paul.

    Thanks so much Paul. My music playing soared after joining and now I call fellow members, "family". What more can a person give?

    I always wondered from who and where TDPRI was born. So many people have bright ideas. So few act on them. I am glad that you did, Paul. Thank you!
