    So it wasn't something I said? Man, I've felt horrible thinking that I drove you away. I felt so guilty. All these years...


    :p

    Welcome back. It's good to have you here.

    Did you leave before Bumched Shrits became a thing? Because that is a pretty big deal...

    As a relatively new-comer, am I allowed to welcome you back? I came because of the Telecasters, and stayed (in spite of the horrible spelling and grammar) 'cause of everything else. I liken this place to phone sex (which I have NEVER experienced).....we can imagine what other people actually look like, say pretty much what we want to, and fantasize about whatever we wish. And....it can go on for hours!!! ;)

    After eight years of hard work not a single issue has been solved,i.e.:

    PTP vs Hardwire vs PCB
    A-A/B
    Power Tube Distortion vs Pre Distortion
    Overdrive vs Distortion
    Amp Overdrive vs Pedal
    Klon vs klone
    Tone Suck,...

    Pretty much just start posting right where you left off. Or to save time, just repost from your eight year old musings.

    Now you mention it, we have all come to a consensus on the best wood (for bodies, necks, fingerboards), the best hardware, pickups and electronics, cords, capos, effects, amps, straps and pics. We also figured out which reissues are as good or better than originals.

    Yeah. 8 years to get to where we are now. Think of all you missed.

    Oh, and I almost forgot...

    Using the spelling "blooz" is anathema now and is grounds for flogging, ritual humiliation, and permanent banning from the forum. So, Mr. TelecasterBlooz, a vote will be required regarding your punishment and ultimate re-admittance to the forum at large. (However, the process can be expedited -- Just send your check to: Bad Dog Cafe Beer and Whiskey Fund, Teleland, The Internet. C'mon, now -- We're all waiting!)

    I object; reports of the death of tube amps has been greatly exaggerated.

    Unless they haven't.

    But they have.

    Haven't they?

    Most of the recent banter is about non-telecaster stuff...
    Occasionally folks talk about building T-styles, playing techniques, and historical TELE info, and often re-ask about stuff which has been well-documented and discussed before.
    The Classified Section seems smaller to some...
    People seem "mean" ... grammar and spelling is horrifying onaccounta voice text apps and laziness... many of us are old and would clearly rather discuss our illnesses and lost loved ones and celebs in the news than our guitars.....
    We still seem to want an internet post to define and instruct on the "twang" phenomenon...
    Time marches on.
    (But ya can log on and peek sometimes.... no need to go another
    8....!?!!)
