Hi guys, Wamba here. So, I've always been a Strat guy, even from way back in the day. But here's what's changed. After my father retired I convinced him to buy an acoustic and learn to play. He had always played some easy three chord country stuff. Well, he goes out and buys a brand new Taylor 414! He has spent the last 12 years traveling the country with my mom playing 250 to 300 gigs a year. He'll sing anywhere, camp grounds, senior centers, open mikes... you name it. It's still mostly older country, think Bakersfield and Outlaw kinda stuff. About a year ago my folks came off the road and my father and I and a couple of my older sons (1 on bass the other on guitar) and my oldest daughter (piano) have been playing together almost every week. Nothing serious just learning his songs and having a great time. That's why I'm here. I need a Tele. My father isn't getting any younger (73 with some health issues) and nothing makes him happier than playing with me and my kids. I know I could just slap a Twang Banger in my Strat and call it good. But it's kinda like playing Bluegrass with a Gibson flattop. I'm pretty well studied on the Strat, I have a good idea how to how to set it up and get the different sounds I hear in my head. But the Tele is a complete stranger to me, I don't ever recall even playing one plugged in. So, I'm here to learn.
