I've lurked here a while, guess it's time to join up. I'm Mark, that's what I'm known by, my actual first name causes confusion and mispronunciation, not that I mind, it just saves time to go by something more familiar. I'm a Dad, Grandpa, husband, and follower of YHWH, I like a little Western with my Country, and I'm saddened that we lost Leon Rhodes in December. My favorite guitars are Teles, always have been, but I have a soft spot in my heart for old inexpensive hollow bodies that play good in spite of their lineage... ...I'm working on my own design of a bender, a modular system that will (hopefully) be adaptable to one, two, up to all six strings, if I can keep the little E from snapping like a brittle femur. I look forward to learning from y'all, hopefully I can contribute now and then. sincerely, Mark.
