    Hello everyone. New to the forum due to a recently emerging Tele obsession.

    I'm a regular on the other big guitar forums out there but recently been hankering badly for a Tele so I've come here to see some nice photos and do some research.

    I play a Les Paul R8 through a Vox with the usual pedals but with my guitar playing moving into country style licks and techniques, I think I need a Tele (that's what I'm telling the wife anyhow). I'd say I'm at intermediate level. I'm a pretty decent bedroom guitarist.

    My tele obsession comes from the fact I'm a HUGE Roy Buchanan fan. The Live in Austin, TX show changed my guitar life.

    So might end up with a early 50s reissue CS Tele soon. We shall see.

    Looking forward to learning a lot here.

    Cheers!

    Welcome and yes, it's scientifically proven you must own a Tele to play country! Now if I can just get my wife to understand that I can't play BB King style blues without a '59 335.;)

    Welcome aboard!

    Maybe it is not absolutely necessary to use a tele to play country (some play a strat, or a music man, some even les pauls), but it definitely helps! Holding a tele immediately gets me in the mood for country music!

    Welcome, pard!

    Be careful, you may find a Tele more pleasing to play than a LP. (I sure did, grabbing an HH Tele as a replacement for my last LP.)
