    Hello everyone. Just wanted to say hello from NC.

    I played guitar for a year or so in high school, and am now trying to pick it back up 20 years later.

    To motivate me to practice, I bought an American Telecaster.

    I'm also interested in learning how to build a Telecaster, so hopefully I can pickup some tips here.

    Hello and welcome! Born and raised in NC myself. Charlotte native.

    There are some excellent builders here with informative threads.

    G'day,

    We just had a couple of bluegrass pickers from NC come down here to Oz for our annual country music festival, maybe you know them. :)

    Thanks guys!

    Obligatory Telecaster picture :D:

    It's a 2013 American Standard in "Crimson Red Transparent".

    Completely stock for now.

    Very nice Tele! Welcome!

    I've got a place in NC that's over 110 miles west of Asheville. Maybe we should get guys to disclose what part of the state they're from (There's a sign near my Cabin on US 64 that says it is 565 miles to Manteo, or something like that).

    Welcome. I'm also from NC. The foothills section currently, but also have lived fully into the mountains. Wish I still did.
