    Hi all,

    New here, but since I have just started my first Tele build I figured that I'd better say hello. I'm looking forward to all of the knowledge that is here!

    My favorite venue is the Paramount in Oakland. I've seen so many good shows there.

    Lived in the Oakland hills, 29th/Broadway, 41st/Broadway over 22 yrs. I still think of it as home.

    Just noticed this hanging up at work a couple days ago.

    That's an awesome photo! Those hills have a fair amount more homes covering them now!

    There used to be a hip hop group called Oaktown 357 (Pronounced tray five seven). I haven't been up there for over 20 years. I do remember great record shops like Rasputin. Welcome!

    I went to the very first "Day on the Green" at the Oakland Colosseum, absolutely a great show.
    Funny thing about that was that the news showed the baseball diamond a few weeks later, and there little pot plants everywhere!

    I'm a graduate of CCAC; the art school at Broadway and College. Bought a 50's Bassman and '61 Esquire from Leo's Music. Are they still in business?

    I digress... Welcome to TDPRI. I look forward to following your build.
