    I got my one and only telecaster 14 years ago today!

    The title of this thread is labeled "part two" because Photobucket has severed all the links to my old photos! So I thought I would just create a reboot of my old thread.

    Here I am with my daughter Grace (5 months old) and my new Muddy Waters Telecaster...

    And three years later with Grace and my son Max...

    And then again three years later, so 2010...

    It's kinda like the Picture of Dorian Grey....the people in the pictures age, but the guitar stays exactly the same....it's just weird!

    Ha ha, I think you said that last year. I'm sure I only remember the date because I got my Tele on Valentine's Day.

    The kids are great, but that tele is making you grey, brother!

    Nice looking family!

    Good job putting the thread back together. Enjoy those kids; before you know it you'll be playing that Telecaster in an empty nest!

    Somewhere in a box of parts is my receipt for my Les Paul.
    I wonder what the date was - 1980 something??

    I think I might have to start another thread.

    Just kidding!

    I thought about buying a new guitar just to copy your thread. But she who must be obeyed pointed out that my son is 35 and not as photogenic as your two children and also that I'd never remember the date anyway.

    I thought it was worth a try.
