    Hey everyone. I just wanted to pop in and say hello. I recently purchased my first Telecaster and while looking on the internet for information about my new toy I discovered this place. Anyway, my name is Dan. I’m from south west Ohio. I bought my Tele from a local pawn shop, it is a 2015 American Standard with Fralin Split Rail pups and so far I’m in love .
    Have a great day and I look forward to getting to know you all!

    that’s a nice instrument you have there...what’s your impressions on the Fralins? I’ve always been curious about them...

    So far I like them. I haven’t really had a chance to hear them above bedroom levels yet though. But so far they seem to be a cross between a single coil and humbucker sound. You can get a nice clean tone in the middle switch position or you could put it on the bridge with some gain and play some Metallica if you want. They seem to be pretty quiet too. Once I get a chance to crank it up some I can give you a better report!
