    Newish member here, I was a member years ago. I relocated for work, quit playing gigs after almost 30 years. Then after a 4 year drought I fell into situation with a great group of guys on the coast and I'm back in the game!
    My 92 American Standard Tele that I played an unimaginable amount of jobs with was stolen while I was in a cheap apartment researching houses after my move. So after scoring a gig again, I went to a local independent music shop and bought an AO 60s Tele and a blonde Tone Master Deluxe. Both of which are working out very well.

    Glad to back here!!

    Welcome. Where on the coast are you? Some years back I spent some time in Aransas Pass. Man that place is guitar Heaven. I was fortunate enough to be invited to play a couple of Willie numbers in a local club there and having to keep up with those Texas pickers was a scary experience to say the least. Those boys can lay it down. I swear I'm going back there someday.:)

    League City, 19 miles from Galveston Island. I do occasionally make my way down to Aransas Pass, great fishing there!

    Welcome back! Sad to hear about your '92 AM Std Tele being stolen. it sounds like you have a really nice to replace it though.

    Welcome Back. I was in Houston for the summer of 2019 due to work. I spent every Sunday at High Island Beach just to get away and keep my sanity. I would stop at a little BBQ joint in Winnie on my way back to the city, we don't get much BBQ in VT. All I can say is, it ISN'T a dry heat!

    Welcome fellow Houstonian! Always good to see another local around here!

    If you ever find yourself in need of a drummer, let me know. I'm dying to jam with others!

    Thanks & enjoy!

    Here is the new rig.
    Have added a Paisley Deluxe pedal, pretty much covers everything for me. 20210109_163248.jpg

    That's all you need, right there. A fender telecaster, and a deluxe reverb. Anything more is just ornamentation.
