    I joined a few days ago and am looking forward to learning about all things Tele. I’ve been playing mostly acoustic on/off since my teens in the late ‘70s. I have a 1998 American Deluxe 3 pickup Tele. I replaced the neck pup with a Joe Barden, and flipped the controls because I kept hitting the switch. My amp is a Blues Jr with the BillM mod. Effects include Tone Corset compression, OCD and Flashback 2. I play mostly blues and classic rock. I’m happy with the setup, but I do have a few questions which I will ask in the forums. Pic attached (as required :D).

    Welcome tegel. I always like seeing Michiganders here, it's been 25 years but I grew up in the lower peninsula and still feel like it's home.

    Welcome Tom!

    That's a mighty fine looking "Nashville" you got there. I believe I've spent more time in Ann Arbor, than anywhere else in MI (my Dad's cousin taught at U of M).

    So, Bob Seger or MC5?

    Born and raised in Ann Arbor. Back then, Rick’s was a rock and blues club with live bands almost every night.
