    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.

    Good morning, Mark.

    I'll offer the first greeting, and it's my honor.
    Welcome to TDPRI.

    We are a weird and wonderful collection of guitar players, guitar enthusiasts, and outright guitar addicts.
    I think you'll fit right in here, and we look forward to your contributions.

    Looking forward to seeing what your bender invention looks like, and how it sounds.
    I myself am not much of an craftsman, and truth be told, all my guitars are bone-stock, though they all be well loved, maintained, and polished.

    Photos are always welcome.
    Many of us view guitar photos like so much porno, and it's a shameless obsession.
    Again, glad to have you onboard, mate.

    Spark

    I had to look it up too - Yahweh.

    Somedays I seem to spend half the day on Google trying to understand what you guys are talking about. I must have used Google a half dozen times today just on the Family car thread.

    Anyway, welcome

    I got to sing with him once in 2011 (it wasn't a big deal to anyone but me I suppose, I always liked the midnight jamboree better than the opry, and to sing where all those old shows I heard were broadcast from was something I'll never forget as long as I live), we corresponded a little but I never made it back to Nashville to take him up on his offer of singing wherever he'd be playing :( He was one of my heroes from way back, and to find out what a genuinely great guy he was in reality...well...that was awesome.
