    I got a Greta some time after I joined. It had been sitting in the guitar shop several years, and they put a slight price reduction on it, although it wasn't very cheap.

    I could put a guitar, but it won't really match the handle I picked.

    Mine’s my Bill Giebitz Tele.
    I’ve had it since 1988, the neck (made by the late, brilliant Philip Kubicki) since 1984.
    It was my main squeeze for 20 years.
    It’s made me more money than anything else I own.
    It’s no longer my #1, but I figure I’ll die with it.

    It's the two vintage Teles I'm lucky enough to have.

    Beat up 66 Custom and refin 53 Blackguard. Both have been regularly gigged and sound and play great:D

    It’s an image which according to my wife typifies my “Tendency to be simultaneously entertaining and awful. But mostly awful” she says.

    My avatar is a badge from a custom order Tama Starclassic Performer in Emerald sea fade. If I recall I ordered it in 2006, the last year they handmade that line out of 100% North America Birch in thier Japan factory.

    I ordered 2- 24×18 kicks 10x8, 12x9, 14x10, 16x16, and 18x16 toms. With a Warlord line snare made from 13 plys Rock maple with a quilted maple outer ply.

    I had a pair of Axis A longboard pedals and an array of Paiste cymbals to go with it.

    It carried a fairly substantial price........but was well worth it.

    It's a crop of a photograph of my number one guitar.

    It's an '02 Custom Shop Esquire. It came with a white guard, but for a time I had a lacquered black guard on it, and a vintage-correct mix of slot headed and Philips screws. I have since returned it to its original specs (white guard with all Philips screws).

    Hard to believe it's approaching 20 years old. I have had it its whole life.

    My TDPRI avatar is the Lefty Squier Classic Vibe 50' Telecaster that I am waiting for - expected end of 2019, early 2020 (new Indonesia-made).

    It's a deal with my local music shop. Other than that, it will be my sole Tele guitar since 10 years...

    My avatar is my beloved 1998 Fender American Standard Strat bedazzled with rhinestones for that true country & western tone. I have also a lovely 1952 AVRI Fender Telecaster which goes nicely with my Strat...but does not have any rhinestone decorations...yet.;)

    My cat Alfie captured by my better half.
    No Photoshop [lack technical ability to do that] just caught him looking straight into the flash.
    She screamed when she saw the picture!
    Despite the demonic look, he's a sweetheart.
