    Hi guys and gals,
    Just a quick thank you for letting me join your great forum. I live in Guernsey (Channel Islands) and have in the last year or so rekindled my love of guitars. I currently have quite a few .......... 34 to be precise. Amongst those I have 3 Teles which I adore. Regards John

    Welcome aboard. I've had many visits to Guernsey over the years. Long overdue for another trip when circumstances allow.

    Welcome.

    34 guitars? That's a nice collection (I have around 40 myself).

    So, how long does it take for you to get strings delivered to you?

    If you send your Guitars to me I'll photograph them for you. I make no charge for this service.

    You can upload them here, using the "Upload a File" button.

    For external photo hosting, I use Imgur right now.

    I hate to say it but I had to google "Channel Islands" as I was not familiar with these.

    Being that I am fourth generation removed from the hills of Dublin I am somewhat ashamed!

    Welcome to the fold! And with 34 'tars you are in good company!

    Very difficult to say, I have a few favourites but for different reasons. I will post some pics and some explanations.

    Howdy and welcome!
    34 sure is a good collection. I’ll be waiting for the pics.

    Never been to Guernsey but spent a week on Jersey twenty years ago. It was lovely and my ex and I had a good time there.
