    Like the title says, been gone for awhile. Gave my 98 mexi-Tele to my daughter who is up and coming -(kari Arnett.com), still have my Brownsville Bluesboy, a Tele bodied-(with tummy cut) strat-o-tele switching-(5-way, p-90, and 2 single coils w/a faux Wilkinson whammy). It plays like a dream! Miss my Tele family!

    Well, the price of guitars has genuinely gone up.

    People are complaining more and practicing less.

    Big John is gone.

    But we're doing the best we can.

    People just post without reading previous responses. And they don't know where an apostrophe does and doesn't go. And they (too many of 'em) cut their pizza in big triangular floppy unwieldy wedges, rather than savory squares. And they call rock n' roll lots of stuff that clearly ain't.

    In other words, not a thing has changed

    I do remember Ole Fuzzy, with remembrance and much respect. I actually have a TDP guitar pick. Fuzzy was an inspiration, and he has a FMT I want lol!

    Still in the hand basket, still journeying to the theological place of eternal punishment. The pace seems to have quickened to a rather alarming rate. Oh, well, even the dinosaurs went away eventually...

    I wasn't here when you left either.

    All in all... still one of the very best forums extant.

    "Now"? Wait, is that a new thing? I've always found the TDPRI to be "pants optional"...
