Ok, the introduction thing... I'm one of those Bible thumping born agains, been playing badly to mediocrely (that ain't a word is it?) for just shy 30 years now (has it *really* been that long? Sheesh). I play every Sunday at church, and every other chance I get. My current babies: L-to-R: Martin Shennandoah D-2832 bought used in 1984 - original owner bought it, turned right around and sold it - warranty card was still in the case when I bought it! Koontz & Thurston custom Telecaster copy bought in 1984 - DiMarzio SuperII and Duncan JB pickups, uberflexible wiring setup. That's the second neck it's had; the first (a lovely flame maple number) developed a hideous, uncorrectable S-bend. I've been through several other electrics; I keep coming back to that Tele. Jay Turser JT-134 semi-hollow bought in 2007 - It was just time to buy something jazzier-blusier than the Telecaster. Must have something with hitting the mid40s - midlife crisis and all that. Took one look at it in the shop and went OOOOO SHINYTHING! Pretty darned good fit and finish for a cheap Chinese CNC factory job. I'm contemplating new pickups for it one of these days, just 'cause I can't NOT mess with a guitar. :AOK I joined the forum primarily to aid in my Quixotic quest to find a guitar that I let slip away many years ago and want desperately to find again. IF anyone in the Phoenix area comes across a white Hondo II LP copy with DiMarzio pickups and 4 mini toggle switches in a line between the volume and tone controls, please email me! I kid you not, I really MISS that guitar! Everyone has to have one obsession, one forlorn hope that maybe God will reach down and satisfy outta the blue someday; this is mine. Odd, no?
