    Hey folks,

    I've been playing (mostly acoustic) guitar about 40 years. Dabbled in electric guitars a while back, but without a band it was short-lived. Now we have software, amp sims, modelers, backing machines and tracks, so I'm making a run at it again.

    Had my share of Gibsons (LPs, SGs) and Fenders (all strats). Picked up a P-90 B&G Little Sister a while back and thought, this chunky baseball-bat neck is what I need. That led me to a Tele and specifically, a Richie Kotzen model. My first Tele and I know, not a typical one. But you know how it goes. Sometimes a guitar feels just OK and you give it a chance, only later to cut it loose. This one, for me, was like OMG - I'm never putting this down. Anyhow, I have a lot to learn about this world.

    See ya round.
    Dave

    Hey there, welcome!

    You can take the man outta Philly, but you can never take the Philly outta the man. I shall return one day.

    Don't forget Hall & Oates. I'm a Lansdale/North Wales guy lost in Houston.
