    Hi all! I started playing guitar in 1985. I've owned lots of guitars in the past, and have been able to build up a small collection of about 10 guitars now, including a Vintera 50's Modified Tele, and a Modern Player Thinline Tele. My teles are the least expensive guitars in my collection, and also my favorites! I also have done lots of little minor mods to guitars over the years, and I have plans to mod my thinline pretty heavily, and the threads here around that are what drew me to actually create an account (I've lurked here for years though :lol:). I would really like to build one from scratch myself at some point, along the lines of what @handtoolbuilds has talked about: I have what I call a "zero volt" woodshop full of hand tools, and I know how to solder pretty well (having once worked in an electronics calibration/repair lab), and I have decent enough health insurance, so I'm well on my way! ;-P

    Anyway, happy to be here! Here are a few shots of some of my collection (so far!)

    Nice try, Big Brother.
    Cabinet shop country, ain't it? I used to work for a company that used Rutt Cabinetry which I believe is in your neck of the woods. Welcome!

    I was initially thinking maybe you weren't too far from me.

    Hmmm, google maps, scroll out, Philly. Never mind. :D
