    I found this site a little over a year ago while recovering from knee surgery. I’ve always been a guitar nut and I love telecasters but what struck me most about this site was the true sense of community. There are some really good writers here and for the most part everyone is not just well informed but nice. And often very funny. So I became addicted and recently joined up and have nervously posted a couple of replies to things.
    Anyway, I thought it might be customary to say hello, so, Hello! And thank you for the past year of insights, information and humor. (It’s all good for the heart and soul and blood pressure.)

    Welcome friend.

    I was just marveling at the fact that I've been here for almost 15 years. I was a high school senior when I created my account. In that time I joined the military, got out, moved around the US, lived in England, got married, bought a house, started a business...etc, etc, etc. While I haven't been the most regular poster here, TDPRI has always been there for me. Its one of the best forums on the internet, even if we only rarely talk about Telecasters.

    Welcome!

    A few topics you want to ask about right away:
    1. Does tonewood matter?
    2. Stratocasters, Les Pauls, rutabagas, etc. all suck.
    3. No/every Tele should have a Bigsby on it.
    4. Tweed--no, Blackface!--no, Silverface! no, solid state! rules. Everything else--see 2., above.
    5. Famous player _____ is the best/worst/dated my sister.

    Just kidding. Those are our beaten-to-death/goes-nowhere topics.

    Just about every other topic will generate a lot of witty and useful replies here. It really is a great forum. The moderators may seem over-strict sometimes, but they deserve a lot of credit for keeping us civilized.

    Hey Y'all - Welcome Back - I try to be helpful which is sometimes overshadowed by my wonderful sense of humor;) Pull up a chair and get comfy there's a lot of folks on right now.

    Welcome!.....and you're right, this place is much like a community....or, a FAMILY.
    And like most families, we may bicker, argue, disagree, etc.....on some of the most ridiculous subjects. ;)
