    Due to circumstances beyond my control, I've been kind financially struggling for about a year. As a result(this part still makes me sick) I had to sell all of my gear. I went completely without a guitar for a pretty long time. Recently, Maggie and I have finally hit a good stride. So I've gotten 3 new guitars! More pics to come btw. But this one is my favorite! Just picked it up today. It's a Mel McCullough Del Vecchio replica. It's the second one ever made! I cant put it down! View attachment 717669

    Thanks guys! The other 2 that I bought were an Epiphone Dove Pro and a Peavey Reactor tele. So yeah, now I'm back in the tele club! Now I just have to get me another amp and I'm in business!

    triple congrats! got to love the roller coaster, right?

    Glad you found a Reactor - I found one maybe 18 years ago or so; it ended up being my reintroduction to telecasters, my gateway drug, so to speak.

    It's been through a lot - I hope yours will help carry you through as mine did during periods of challenge.

    VERY nice guitar Fireball519.

    Congrats on your score.

    It's such a cool guitar, that the guys must be able to see it to appreciate it.

    Here's a big pic of your guitar.

    Back in the saddle.
    Feels good, don't it?
    I've been there.
    It feels so good when it's over.
    Congrats.
