    Hi all,

    Not much to tell. I happened onto this site to get some info about the Hwy 1 Tele (mine is a 2010). I also have a 2002 (20th anniversary!) Squire Strat that's a lot of fun. I'd eventually like to put better pick ups in that one. I just picked up a used Epiphone LP jr. with one humbucker in the bridge position that I'd like to add a tele neck pup and 3 way switch with coil splitting on the humbucker. My acoustic guitar is a 1957 Gibson L-50, and I have a 3/4 size Yamaha nylon string for traveling (and it's what I generally grab to mess around on, 'cause it's always out).

    I have a Fender Vibrolux tube amp, but tend to use my wife's Pro Reverb when playing with the band. It's louder, and not as twangy as the Vibrolux, and just seems to suit our sound better.

    I don't really use any of my effects pedals anymore (MXR Distortion II, MXR Phase 90, Dunlap Crybaby Wah, DOD digital delay/chorus), but have lately become enamored of my band mate's Holy War mini pedal.

    Into all types of music, but tend to write songs in kind of an Americana/Pop vein.

    Looks like there are a lot of good threads here. I'm looking forward to reading more.

    Scott

    Welcome to the fold, but, only half of us can read. The other half needs your guitar pics to accept you.

    Welcome.
    If and when you decide to upgrade your Strat's pickups, let us know.....you'll get LOTS of good recommendations regarding those. And like Stringbanger said, we need pictures to prove you really own any guitars. ;)
