    Hello all! I am a beginner with guitar. I have a Tele made by Michael Detemple. What a master luthier he is. I also have an America Standard. Again, I am not a player much. I have come by many guitars because my son is the player. He has moved away as he is now out of college. I get the left-behinds. I am pretty much strumming away on an acoustic most days. I do plug in a Tele into a Fender Hot Rod that is hanging around. I am looking forward to making more music.

    What brought me to this site is a friend gave me a 70's neck. Not cracked, but worn for sure. So, project here I come. I know the best way to immerse myself in all things Tele, is to join a forum of like minded folks. So, here I am.

    Welcome, mdcioffi.

    It's good to have you aboard, mate.

    Players are always welcome, and you will find many new friends here.

    Telecasters are the best and most off-beat instruments in all the musical world.
    We look forward to photos of yours made by Michael Detemple.

    I'm sure it's beautiful!
    :)
