    I live between Houston and Galveston, Texas. I've been viewing this forum for many years but never joined because I didn't own a Telecaster. I've been playing over 30 years now and Les Pauls and Marshall amps have been my preferred sound for 60's-90's British Blues, Rock and Hard Rock. I started looking for a cleaner more articulate sound last year and that led me to a Stratocaster style guitar which I have enjoyed very much. Last week I finally dove off the deep end and got not one but two used Telecaster type guitars. One is the later model Fender Highway One and the other is an early 90's G&L ASAT Classic. Wow, Tele style guitars sure have their own thing going on. I'm still in the process of trying to dial in a good sound on my amps. The information I've got off of this forum has been great.

    Howdy. Welcome aboard. Given your location, are you familiar with the Old Quarter in Galveston? If yes, do you know if it is an acoustic only venue?

    To be a picker in Texas and not own at least one Tele? Man, good thing you fixed that. You might have gone straight to hell. Good to have you here.
