Hello fellow Tele lovers, I am a die hard tele rocker from california, i wasnt always however, i discovered my love for these sweet guitars by accident. Im a lifelong rocker, metalhead and heavy blues rock enthusiast. My lovely wife wnted to buy me a premium guitar as a love gift, so i initially tried Les Pauls, but found them uncomfortable and hard to play on the high frets. i settled on a black explorer and actually put it on layaway. Then one day aT sam ash i picked up a tele as a joke, i mean country guitar right?? twang only. Well, i couldnt have been more mistaken. i plugged her int a marshall, and could not believe the tone i got from it. She blew me away. I also couldnt believe how fast the neck was, thin and wide. i took the stupid explorer off layaway and got my first tele. i now own two of em one has hotrails the other shall remain stock. since then i also just got my dream anp a mashall jcm 2000. these underrated gems are more versatile then people give them credit for. i don like much else out there, im set . i play all types of music with them.
