    I finally made up my mind and just ordered a Telecaster. I own only one electric guitar, a Les Paul with which I studied jazz, played rock in clubs, dreamed, cried and rejoiced.

    The first time I held a Telecaster I felt something electric, and 7 years ago I decided to build one,
    but I never started this project.

    Today I have decided that it is the right time for a Bullet Tele, and to use some components I had purchased for the guitar that I have never built.

    I have been reading this forum for a long time and I hope that by sharing my further experience I will give something back to this community.

    Welcome, you're certainly a rarity!
    Taking 7 yrs to actually get a Tele.
    Most folks around here would probably have half a dozen by now:lol:

    Welcome aboard!! We will want to see pix of that Bullet when received, but pix of the LP would be acceptable in the meantime.

    Welcome to the TDPRI and you can't go wrong with a Tele(or a Strat, or a LP, etc...).

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll take pictures as soon as the Tele rings my doorbell. Being a Bullet I expect it to be fast! :D
