    Hi All,

    Just picked up my first Telecaster yesterday. I have primarily played Strats in the past but have been on the lookout for a nice Tele and just found one that I can't put down. Looking forward to learning more about the Telecaster.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    It is my first yes. Really liking it so far. It has the same mid 60's oval C neck profile that I like on Strats. I's a 60's ltd edition with an SSH pickup configuration giving me a nice mix of tones. Think they may call it a Nashville. I have a lot to learn about Teles. Ill post tonight with some pics.

    Welcome! Toronto + telecaster makes me think of wonderful things! Shyboy&Tex! Capsule Music! But most of all: the wonderful Ed Bickert!

    Enjoy your time here. It's a great place to learn about the most arcane mysteries of the best electric guitar ever, of Fender amps (the amps team is astounding), or to just blow the hot air. Welcome again!

    Hello from another Torontonian!

    And hearing Ed Bickert playing with Moe Koffman was one of my life's great musical joys.
