Hi Everyone, Nice to meet everyone, and I'm glad to be a part of this Discussion Page! I've been playing with varying degrees of seriousness since 2013. I've obviously got a tele (Fender American Original 50s) A couple of partscasters me and my dad assembled (one is a twang king set, the other is a wilkonson set), A strat (partscaster tex spec), a D'Angelico SS, and a whole lotta MIJ guitars (no lawsuits). I mainly play classic rock, early prog rock, and dead tunes. I'm just getting into pedals, and my amp is a pignose 60vr that my friends are all jealous of. As far as guitars go, I'm a bit of a gearhead and should probably spend more time playing the guitars instead of talking about them (but who doesn't every once and a while). I am not well versed in amps and specs on amps since I've never had to buy one. I hope I can learn a lot from all of you!

The ironic thing is...there really isn't much to learn about a Telecaster. They are simple, bare bones guitar. I have three Rickenbackers and I still don't know what the fifth knob actually does. I have two Gretsches and pickup adjustments, tone controls, Bigsby set up, how to string the guitar efficiently, feedback control...all that and more has to learned.

But a Tele? Really just plug in and play.

Welcome to the forum. Great info available. Here's a tip.....SEARCH on the topic of your questions first before posting an inquiry about it. It's quite possible that it may have already been a topic discussed in the past ....

Welcome. Pignose amps are very cool. I've never owned one but I've played through a few and was never disappointed.

Welcome from Albuquerque New Mexico. Texas Specials in the strat, good choice. Here is my partscaster Esquire. Warmoth body, baritone neck. DiMarzio 'Chopper T'. I tune it to regular E.
