    Guitar you first really wanted when growing up

    Lennon's first RIC 325 caught my eye at age 8. I didn't start playing until age 12. I never ever saw one in any store locally, but I found a 330 and it seemed close enough at the time. I finally bought one in the early 2000s, and for me, all I could manage to get out of it was Beatles songs. I...

    Why do people like Fender Guitars?

    I started with RICs in 1967, then moved to Gibsons. I didn't warm up to Strats until the 80s, then 10 years later, my first Tele. I still love and own all of them, but unless I have a distinct urge, I grab this one Tele before trying any of the others for the same job.

    Any artistes who can offer some advice on drawing guitars?

    A ruler would help for both strings and frets, and you only have 18 frets, double-dotted at the 10th. Ruler on pups & neck, too. :D

    When men were men and real musicians walked this land

    OP, he was probably using a tone bender or a fuzz face. Also possible it was the built-in fuzz on the Kustom amps. Boomer here. Simmer down, Milli.
