Good day to you all! I hope you are as good as can be. When I recently bought a used MIJ Tele, I was mostly just thinking about all the joy I was gonna have playing Surf and Spaghetti Western chords. And it I would break it out when my cover band plays a couple numbers by The Police. However and to my absolute delight, I'm finding this sweet axe is excellent for Punk, Garage, and other ballsy kinds of RAWK! I can't wait to see the guys and break this out for Joe Jackson's I'm The Man. Are you using your Tele to get gritty? Please tell me about it!
