    Hi,

    I've been playing and gigging on and off since the 70's.

    Unfortunately due to job and family commitments, it's been mostly "off" for the past 12 years.

    But now my kids are both raised, and my work schedule gives me enough time to get back to my music.

    I've always been a Fender guy, although along the way I have owned various other brands there never has been a time when there wasn't a Fender of some type in my house.

    At the moment I have 3, A MIM tele (2001), A MIM Strat (2000), and an almost new Squier Tele.

    I'll probably ask some dumb questions around here - from viewing these forums and others I often see terms I don't understand - what the heck is a "kill" switch, for example?

    Any way, I chose this forum as the place to hang my hat (figuratively, since I rarely wear a hat myself) because it seems to be a friendly, helpful place where the posters all treat each other with respect.

    So that's it - a vintage guy, with non-vintage gear. See you all in the forums!

    Hey, new guy! Welcome!

    Two days ago someone told me what "MOTS" stands for. They have all kinds of crazy info around here!
