Long time lurker....finally signed up because someone asked a question that I have some current direct knowledge....just trying to help a brother out! I've been playing since 1963 or 1964. Played in bands in high school and the I.U Soul Review at Indiana U Bloomington in college. (With my 1971 Tele which I still have) One 30 year career in the Music business and a ten year career in the Wine business. I'm now in wealth management with a very select clientele (my wife and I, LOL) I read the forum pretty much everyday but I'll probably only post when I've got something to contribute. I love my Tele's because Tele's keep you honest as a player. You can't fake it on a Tele!
