Aloha! I've been creeping around the site for the past few weeks while I've been playing whatever telecaster's I can find around the island looking to buy my first tele. I don't know when I fell in love with them, but wanting to own a tele has been an obsession for almost a year. After reading too many threads, and obsessing way to much, I decided to take telemarkman's word and grab a Classic 60's MIM. I was stuck deciding between a Standard MIM (and modding the hell out of it) or an American Standard and somehow fell in love with the 60's neck and sound! Such a great guitar, no modding needed! I'll post some pictures in the 50/60's Club. I've been playing for about 20 years and have musical interests that range from punk, post-punk, indie, noise all the way to jazz, blues and classic rock. Glad to be onboard and look forward to contributing and having fun!
