    I'm new to guitar, been playing about 2 1/2 months now. Always a big music fan, I realized all the guitars I liked were Fenders, especially the Telecaster. Joe Strummer, Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen, and on and on. So I'm starting with the Squier Affinity Tele, with an eye on possibly upgrading to a Fender Tele in the future.

    I've been checking out TDPRI for a couple of months, just joined today. Looking forward to participating in the forums here as I start my guitar journey!

    Thanks everybody! I can tell there are a lot of good folks here in the TDPRI, glad to now take part in the conversation. Picklew, nice to know I'm not the only Tele newbie here! And Simonsp, it's 111 degrees here in Phoenix today, and I was out playing golf in it! Glad to be back inside in the AC strumming my Tele...

    Welcome PhxFenderFan!

    I hear ya. The kids and I went out to the desert to shoot holes in some paper plates with a pellet gun. Just about roasted before coming back to the house and jumping in the pool.

    Downshift - I lived in Tucson for a few years. We just had evaporative cooler as well. Only time I ever had a problem was when it was about 117. Other than that, we got along OK, especially during the monsoons.

    Downshift, I feel for you just having the evap cooler, especially with the heat we've been having lately. And thanks for the welcome rghill and kromanomo -- agreed, this is a great forum!

    Howdy PhxFenderFan!

    You are in my favorite ex-home town. I lived there in the '60s and again in the early '80s. My Mom is still there and every winter I wish I was back ( every summer I am glad to be here in Chicago ).

    As far as Tele's are concerned, I waited for a really long time to get one, have been a Strat guy most of my guitar playing life. I have to admit my MiM Tele is as much fun to play as my MiA Strat plus ! ! !

    Enjoy,
    -Harry

    Coach, I'm a Phoenix native, and you never really get used to the summers here... Axe and kookaburra might back me up on that... Thanks telex and everybody for the additional welcomes!
