    Hi Everyone - I'm a two-year learning player and long-time solder slinger who spent years fixing amps for friends before I finally mustered up the will to learn to play myself. I mostly play Blues and Country.

    I have a Samick Tele which followed me home from the thrift store, an Epiphone Casino Coupe, and a Seagull acoustic. Amp is a homebrew 5F2A / 6G10.

    Back in the late 80's, going to the Samick store in the mall was a must.

    Welcome from Albuquerque New Mexico:D it's kind of an unwritten law here that you gotta place a pic of your Tele, whether it's a high end or budget guitar, we are enthusiasts and sadly, pic-a-holics.
