    Now that I have your attention...Hi all!

    It is true. Of all the guitars I own, still no Tele. I own a couple of Gibsons (an LP and a Midtown Kalamazoo), a Micheal Kelly Hybrid Special, a Washburn WI67, a Squier Affinity Strat, a Jay Turser JT-133, a Squier M70, A Westbury Standard, an Ibanez AF55, a Daisy Rock Retro 12 String electric, a Yamaha AC3M, a Mumbo Jumbo Dreadnaught, and a couple Fender acoustics.

    I saw that there is a Worship Players' forum here. Currently I am playing every other week in a worship band, so I will probably check that out quite a bit.

    See you all around the forum. :cool:

    Welcome to the forum! There is still plenty of time for you to get a Tele, we'll wait. :p

    P.S. Van Gogh's Ear is a great name

    Welcome, but hurry up and get a tele before you get reported. :D

    Welcome. :)

    I lurked on here during my pre-Tele days, only joining and posting when I got my Baja. Since then, I have been restrained and only bought one more Tele, a Mex 72 Custom, which stays in open G. They both get a damn good thrashing on a regular basis.

    It's only a matter of time, my friend. ;)

    Thanks for the nice welcome and patience with this poor tele-less guitar player. :D

    Fortunately there is an easy cure for that. Teles come in all price ranges and most of them sound pretty darn good. Welcome to the Forum!

    Same here. I lurked before I got my tele.

    Also, that sounds like a sweet collection of guitars you got there. Next up: a tele! :D

    Thanks. It's a shortening of the phrase "I have Van Gogh's ear for music." I love it, but I have to work at it.

    My collection is quite a mixed bag, but mostly humbucker type, except the Squier Strat. Tele is a type of guitar that I have never had.

    I am being severely tempted by the Squier line. My two Squires are great guitars (I upgraded the Affinity Strat with a new loaded pickguard, but the M70 is stock and really doesn't need any changes) so I am considering some Squier Teles. I love semihollows, so the Thinlines are looking interesting.
