    Hello guys.

    I'm MrTeemon, a recent Telecaster 'convert' from the North East of England. I grew up playing Les Pauls, then switched to PRS. Finally, I picked up an American Tele last autumn and that was that. I have barely touched my PRS since. :lol:

    I love to play a wide range of music from the shred stuff e.g. Paul Gilbert and Guthrie Govan all the way to Wes, Joe Pass and Ted Greene, my absolute favourite at the moment. Ted is pretty much the reason I considered a Tele in the first place.

    This is my 2004/05 MIA Telecaster. I don't have a good camera at the moment so it's not a great photo.
    I bought it used and to be honest, I'm unsure on the exact model. I was told that it's an American Standard. Anyway, it plays like a dream and the tone is fantastic. I will also be building a partscaster soon, so I'll probably be picking some brains around here. ;)

    Cheers!

    Hellooo from a former resident of the NE (there for 7 years until the mid-90s).

    I also have a "natural" Tele (MIJ 70s reissue) that I've just swapped the pickups and bridge on and enjoying it.

    Welcome!

    The ash on that American looks just great.

    I love the A5 neck pickup in that model. :^)
