    Hey All,
    I’ve owned a couple Telecaster’s and a few other electrics over the years. Recently traded an EVH Signature Series Wolfgang for a 2009 LP Standard that sits next to a ‘52 Closet Series Telecaster Custom shop. I’ll throw a picture up of the 52 once I figure that out.

    I play out of a small Vox when wife and boys are home and a 68 Deluxe Reverb when they’re not.

    Anyways, I’m currently building a parts caster and have been reading through countless threads, figured it was about time to join and thank everyone for their help as I lurked in the dark and also to hopefully get some more useful pointers to finish up that project (starting with Best way for getting a vintage 3 Saddle Bridge onto a body drilled for a modern 6. Anyone with a good video for that will get many virtual high 5s).

    So thanks again and cheers
    JR

    Welcome aboard!
    Glad to have you.
    A quick heads up, some folks are getting a little stir crazy and it’s manifested itself as some crazy posts.
    I don’t think we are all this nuts ordinarily, but enjoy the ride while it lasts.
