    Well, I'm ready to dive into the world of telecasters. I'm inspectorted or Ted for short. Over the weekend I was invited to sit in on a blues jam session, where one guy let me play his custom telecaster. I've played now for 35 years, but never played a tele. I always thought I was more of a humbucker guy until last weekend. Right now I am building a les paul copy modeled after the "59" burst. I would like to start a tele sometime in the future, and figured there's no place to start except right here.

    Hi Ted...Tele's will change your life. Bold statement I know, but it's the truth.
