    Hello!

    I've been playing guitar for almost 15 years and have owned multiple Strats, a Gibson SG, 2 different Ibanez guitars, and 2 classical guitars. After months of research (most of which consisted of reading these boards) and playing half a dozen new and used Teles, I settled on a straight up USA Standard Telecaster. I run it through a 1976 silverface twin, and it sounds incredible.

    In the coming months, my hope is to swap out the pickups for some blue/red lace sensors a la the mid 90's Telecaster Plus series that have become increasingly hard to find.

    Thank you all for sharing your knowledge and passion for these guitars!

    Welcome to the club! Congrats for your tele! Is the tele your only guitar right now? When I hear tele plus I immediately think of Radiohead! What kind of music do you play?
    cheers

    @ Fosco-

    Currently playing in a band with a lot of different influences and sounds: Alternative / Punk / Latin / Morrissey / Weezer - ish vibes. Check out our video on youTube if you like, the band is called "Alive at 27" and the song is "Parking Lot Window Seat".

    (Im allowed to do this kind of shameless self promotion here, no?)

    The guitar in the video is not the one I used on the record...Highway 1 Strat through an old (1980 something) orange Roland Cube. We were out in a field in 100 degree temperatures, so I was being a little protective of my Strat by leaving it home for the shoot.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!
