    Started as a bassist, always wanted to be a guitarist too, taking it more seriously now as I near retirement from the "day job". No real teles, best tele clone is a Bill Lawrence Thinline '69 clone which is really really nice and a couple of SXes, which are, well, SXes (really nice for $100, yeah). One of which is a lefty that I can't play, just bought for the reverse headstyle neck but never used.

    Blah blah rambling on just saying hello on a Thanksgiving afternoon.

    Started as a tuba player but wanted to be a guitarist too. That was back in junior high school. The tuba player never got the girl.

    Welcome......nothing wrong with adding guitar to your accomplishments, but I encourage you to not drop the bass. Guitarists are a dime-a-dozen, but (good) bass players are worth their weight in gold. Several members here are bass AND guitar players.
    And, in my opinion, great music can be played on cheap instruments as well as expensive ones. Don't apologize for your SXes.....it's what you do with them that counts! ;)
