    Hi

    In early 2012 I went through a bit of a rough patch with my guitar playing and took the insane decision to get rid of my guitars! So for a year and half I have been guitarless. :(

    I began to miss the guitar and my terrible playing. At the end of last year I bough myself a new acoustic, it felt great but something was still missing and today (thanks to ebay) that void has been filled.:p

    My 2007 MIM Sunburst Fender Telecaster has arrived and darn it feels good to play. It is in great condition, nice neck. Now all I need is an amp and I'll know how good it sounds :lol:

    That is a real beauty. Perhaps someone on here has an amp, that is in your area. I recently sold my squier Stagemaster to a gentleman. He, like you, unloaded all his gear due to extenuating circumstances. After he bought guitar, I ask him about his amp. He told me that was next when $ permitted. I had an old Johnson, I just gave it to him with cord and pics. I just couldn't imagine. It's like awaiting your new rolls Royce, but you have the steering wheel...LOL
    CongrATS TO YOU!

    Wow that looks really nice. I'd go w/ the white guard but that's me. I bet a Vox AC4 or VHT Special 6 would make the guitar very happy

    Cheers guys, it been really well looked after, hardly a mark on it. Haven't made my mind up on the white or black guard yet.

    Went to guitar lesson this today so got to plug it in and I'm happy to say it sounds as good as it looks even through a little microcube.
