Hi,

My name’s Jay (for Jérôme), I’m barely 40 and I’m a big fan of the Telecaster, of course!

I started playing guitar about 15 years ago (so not that young) … with a Fender American Deluxe Telecaster (Candy Tangerine), which is still my “number one”.


(
Here it is, with its friends)

Soon I was enough lucky to pick up some really good guitars (which I still have) from my cousin who gave me his gear (a Gibson Les Paul Studio and an Ibanez UV777) after deciding to stop playing.
Since then I have "slightly" enlarged the list with few other Telecasters, because it remains for me the sexiest form for a guitar.


Musically, I mostly listen rock music and I'm very metal oriented, but strangely enough I've only played very rarely ... until then.
I'm more of a blues/rock/pop guitarist at first, but since I got back to it, I tend to play heavier stuff like Iron Maiden or Pantera ... well I try. :)

Gear level, so I have (in order of obtaining):

- Fender Telecaster American Deluxe (since 2006)
- Cort folk (since 2007)
- Gibson Les Paul Studio from 1992 (since 2008)
- Ibanez Universe UV777 from 1999 (since 2008)
- Martin LX Black (since 2016)
- Fender Telecoustic … not my favorite
- Steinberger Spirit GT deluxe 2020
- Squier Stratocaster CV 70’s natural 2020
- Fender Mustang Competition MIJ 2010 (since 2020)
- Custom 77 China Girl (SG clone) with Gibson Humbuckers
- Epiphone Sheraton II Pro 2020
- Fender Partcaster Telecaster (Squier CV 60’s body/Fender for all other parts) 2020
- Sire Larry Carlton S7 2021
- Charvel Joe Duplantier Signature 2021
- Squier CV 60’s Telecaster 2021
- Fender Stratocaster Vintera 50’s 2021
- Sigma DR-41 2021


My amps :

- Orange TH30C (therefore combo) since 2011
- Orange Micro Dark with its small dedicated cabinet.

Welcome from Texas......
Your screen name is "Warhol", and your avatar is a picture of "Beethoven".......no identity confusion? ;););)

Hello from France. How do you use your guitars? One each day or do you have your favorite ones... and others that gather dust somewhere?
P.S. I also have a Telecoustic that I like, but it can't be compared with anything else...

Thanks for your welcome!

to answer the few questions asked:

@nojazzhere : My Avatar represents Beethoven, yes … but painted by Warhol. ;)

@DOCDYA : Some are in my apartment, some are in my country house, so I don't need to carry anything on weekends.
But otherwise some are in standard tuning, others in E Flat, another in D standard, some are HH, others are SS ou SSS (Single Coils), others are HSS etc ..
Different style, different tones etc ..
Of course some are there only for nostalgia (my Cort is ugly and sounds bad but it’s a gift for my 27 birthday), one only for the collection (Telecoustic ) and another just for the pleasure to choose and assemble the different parts.

Hello from Charleston, SC. And welcome to a good place. Btw, my 18 year old son is in France as his home base, and loving it, cruising around the entire continent.

Thx all

Billy3 : Hope your son enjoy.

Addnine : “French fries” aren’t french but belgian (some of them speaks french but there are not French) ;) , and that's why in France we laugh a lot when in 2003 some americans boycotted french fries because we didn't want to follow the delirium of W. Bush. :D
