    Hi all,

    Just getting back into playing after a hiatus and thinking about picking up a tele. Never had one before but interested in finding out more about this iconic working mans guitar. I primarily play rock/grunge/alternative/classic rock, so looking at what options would be best for my needs. Looking forward to learning more from the experts here.

    Hey neighbor! Michigander here. Teles are great! Looking for humbuckers or singles? Any tele will do man however you should try a classic single/single config.

    Welcome. Telecasters are magic. There's just something very special about them that you will grow to know and love. Try a bunch of them if you can and get the one that "speaks" to you.

    Hello Hawk45, welcome to the forum. Lots of great Tele's out there. If you can find a store with a selection try some and buy the one that call's your name. Good luck in the quest.

    Welcome, from an Ohio born guy.

    I bought my first Telecaster about 15 years ago and have bought and sold many since, but I’ve never been without a Telecaster for to long in between. Just great versatile guitar’s that can do almost any type of music.

    Glad you joined and be sure to post pictures of your first Telecaster.
