I've been reading and learning from this board for about a month or so. I recently posted a few pics in the Surfcaster owners area. Just wanted to go ahead with a formal introduction. I've been playing for 27 years (since I was 9) and teaching for the last 5. I own a roadworn 72 deluxe and highway one. Tele's are pretty new to me. I've always been a metal shred Ibanez type guy but I guess when you reach a certain age things start to change. Anyway I'm babbling. Nice to be a part of this community.
