Hello All, I'm new to playing guitar (used to play viola). I started on an acoustic but wanted electric. Tried a number of electric guitars to get a feel for them. Then....I saw the craigslist advert for a tuxedo 2005 squire '51. Fell in love with it at first site and first strum. A few of my favorite musicians/bands: Bonnie Raitt, Sarah McLachlan, Sister Rosetta Thorpe, Led Zeppelin, Yes, Soul Coughing, Lightnin' Hopkins... pretty eclectic and new to all sorts of music. Depends on my mood. I look forward to learning more about tele's. I would love to own a thinline at some point in the future.
