Steve here. Long time Tele player. Did some small time garage band gigs in the day, coffee houses, etc. but found out my true love for music comes just picking for myself in my home. Love acoustic but my second love and one I've been turning back to over the last year or so is my 95 Tele and my early 60s Ampeg Gemini I which I got at a garage sale for $20 way back in 1995. I can't get enough of the sound when I plug in the Tele.
