    After thirty years of guitars, I finally cashed in the Telecaster chip I’ve been carrying around. So now I’m eager to learn as much about Teles as I can. I like my Telecaster. I have seventeen guitars now, with one more on the way.

    All nice guitars. Congratulations and welcome to the club.

    Is the Telecaster an AVRI?

    Love them all ESPECIALLY the P90 Les Paul.

    P90: the only pickup that matters.

    Yay! Welcome.

    I'm guessing you'll step your foot into the Fender pool again now that you've got one. I was a Gibson guy for most of my life, now I've got more Fenders than Gibsons.

    I also have a 2015 Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster, a Modern Player Stratocaster, and a heavily modified Stagemaster.

    Same with me, a Gibson guy since I was 19-20 years old. The past 12-15 years, I’ve also gotten into Fenders.

    Now I own three Fender guitars and three Gibson guitars.
