    Hello everyone,

    I'm Sebbe and I'm from the Netherlands, close to the German border. Actually the Grolsch brewery is not so far from where I live(the beer known from the straplock buttons on the bottles)

    These are my guitars btw;

    Hi Sebbe,

    Welcome aboard!

    Could you tell us more about the guitars?

    Yes, I can.

    The Telecaster is a Vintera 50s Modified that I have since July 2020 and is my favourite guitar to play on. I like the medium jumbo frets and smooth neck. The Jaguar is also a Vintera in Ocean Turqoise that I have since a couple of weeks and I'm still exploring all possibilities on it. It has DR Veritas 0.11 strings. It's a fun guitar. The Tele has 0.10s from the same brand. The acoustic is a Epiphone DR100 that I have since April last year. I started playing guitar since the pandemic but was always interested in the instrument and the music that comes with it.

    Welcome Sebbe, you're in good company here.
    Wow, you have acquired THREE new guitars in about a year! Well done. I wish I could manage that. Every year.

    Hi - welcome from Cambridge England.

    I usually visit the Netherlands every year and have been disappointed to have to again put off a cycling trip from Amsterdam to Bruges until 2022.

    One of my favourite guitar shops, The Fellowship of Acoustics is in Dedemsvaart near the German border - you may know it. They sold me a really great vintage ES335 a few years ago.

    Hi Sebbe, nice to meet you. Great to hear of your journey into the world of guitars and music. Nice choice in the instruments. Sounds like you've done your homework, both the Vintera's and the Epi are great choices. You're definitely in the right place.:)

    Looks like you have it covered. Welcome but be warned this site may cause you to buy many more guitars... not that that is a bad thing. Lol.

    Hello Sebbe, welcome to TDPRI. Good to have you join us.
    Looks like you have the basics covered with guitar collection.
    Lets see some more pictures when you get a chance.
