    Although I've been playing for a long time, I've only recently become a Telecaster player. I walked into my favorite local shop last week and saw this hanging on the wall- and it was love at first sight.

    I haven't been able to put it down all weekend, and when I do, it's only to sit and stare at it. I'm addicted, what can I say?

    Welcome and congrats!

    I consider myself an East Tennessean still, though I have not lived there in a few decades.

    This was a picture I took right after I got home with the guitar. All of the plastic is gone now.

    Welcome!!! I'm originally from Knoxville and went to college just south of Chattanooga.

    You know what they say about East Tennesseans... There are two kinds: those who live there and those that wish they still did. Count me in the latter.
