    Hello, I'm an enthusiastic but mediocre longtime guitar player.

    I've been through my share of Strats, Jazzmasters, Rickenbackers, 335s, PRSs, archtops, and so on, but I keep coming back to the Telecaster. It sounds great, plays great, and feels like a comfortable leather coat.

    My favorite players over the years have been Pete Tonwshend, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green, Scotty Moore, Will Sergeant, Johnny Marr, Mick Ronson, Sterling Morrision, Danny Gatton, Les Paul, Wes Montgomery, John Squire, Ed O'Brien, David Roback, and many more who have inspired and influenced me.

    I appreciate all the information and support that I gain from friends and like minded oddballs.

    Cheers!
