    Hi all, good to be here! I've started as a bass player some 30 years ago and I've always played guitar.
    During the last 10 years I've been more and more caught by the guitar. And then GAS kicked in :)
    I've always been a "humbucking" kind of player, I started with an Ibanez JS100, I own a couple of Les Pauls... Then in my blues journey I got myself a Telecaster. It was love at first sight... and now it's my favourite guitar!
    Happy to join this great community!

    And here are the 2 Les Pauls... A 2009 Gibson Les Paul Studio in Alpine White (and Ebony Fretboard) and an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro in Honey Burst.
    And the second preferred one... An Epiphone Firebird I Bonamassa... Twins.jpg IMG_3210 - Copy.JPG

    Great looking tele!

    Leo really nailed it on his first try. He thought outside the box, consulted with working players, and came up with a design that was versatile, rugged, and comfortable to play.

    I agree, and I suggest the Tony Bacon book "The Telecaster Guitar: A Complete History of Fender Telecaster Guitars". It's great, tells the whole story, there are some very interesting anecdotes that show how great he was. And it has great pictures too!
