Just posting to say Hi to everyone here. I'm a 53 guy who just started playing guitar about 2 1/2 years ago. I just got my first Telecaster, a used MIM, dark red with a maple neck, made in '02 I think. I've always loved that tele sound! I really like how the neck plays on this guitar, very easy and comfortable. My other guitars are: Epiphone Swingster (the Joe Pass Model on steroids) orange Ibanez ARX 140 (a cross between a SG and PRS) black Amps: Peavey Delta Blues 115 Peavey Envoy 110 (with Eminence Ragin' Cajun speaker) Kalamazoo Model 2 (recapped otherwise original) I play mostly Blues/Country/Rock, mostly clean channel or light distortion.
