Hello to all. I have been a Tele fan for a long time. I started playing in 1963 and bought my first tele in 1972. I built my own tele in 2000. Made all the wood parts. It has a basswood body with a curly maple top, curly maple neck with an ebony fret board, and has vintage noiseless pickups. I'm currently putting together a 67 super reverb amp and just about every time I do any research this site comes up, so i decided to join the discussion forum. Thank you to everyone for a great site!
