    I´m new to the forum so I just want to say hello to you. I bougt my first Telecaster back in 1979, before that I had a Japancopy of a sunburst Strat. The reason I wanted a Tele was that my favorite band Status Quo played on Teles so therefore I wanted one for myself and my bandmate at the time also bought a (brand new white with black pickguard 1979 ) Tele. There was no internet back in the day but I heard that older Teles should be better than the new ones so I tried to find an older one so I ended up with the 12 year old 67 at the same price as the new 79s, don´t remember but auround 250 dollars was the price.

    Fast forward I still have the 67 and I never going to sell it. It had a repaint in black and a Dimarzo humbucker other from that it was all original, the first picture is from 1979 when I just had bought it.

    This year I bought a 1974 Telecaster Custom, well worn but still playable, original apart from a Seymor Duncan and a few other replaced parts.

    Did you make an album? Or just curious what you looked like in a Cd case?

    Just wondering if you do any recording?

    That could be a thing though, cd picture frames! Maybe even “vintage” now

    :) Back in the day i did some recording. I played both rythm, lead guitar, bass and drums. I used the 16 channel PA mixer that we had and two tape recorders first in 1979 then again in 1985. I also have some old recordings from gigs we did between 1978-86. Some years ago I found the old tapes and made CDs of them :)

    There is only one of each CD in exsistance, so yes they are quite rare LOL

    Had a long break from music recordings ( 1986-2019 ).

    Part of that was that I lost my ( singing ) voice because of cigarette smoking.

    Quited smoking in 2001, slowly recovered and last year I started to do some recording agan.

    I have recordered around 250 songs since then mostly covers of old standards, well known songs and my voice has improved very much in this last year.

    Nowadays I dont have a PA mixer a Bass or Drums so I use backingtracks played thru the computer and play guitar and sing to that recorderd thru the mobile phone.
