So originally, I wanted to take over this planet and rule this world. Then I turned 4 and so the foolishness of my ways. edited. --chiba At 12 years old, hormones started buzzin', and them girls sure looked appetizin'... so the plan was to... well, you know what the damn plan was. At 16, it was off to College, and the plan was to get as many degrees as I could in the shortest amount of time possible. And to still work on the plan above with my spare time Two Master's degrees later, the plan was to leave Europe behind and move to the US, meet great girls, marry one of them, and start a family. Done, done, done and done. This marked the end of the plan that was hatched when I was 12. I got a gig teaching at MIT, and started thinking that a Ph D would be fun, for sure, but that a Nobel Prize would be better. After all, MIT already has, what 17 of them? I figured it'd be cool to add the 18th. Only problem was a distinct lack of talent and perseverance. Drat that. By then the guitar had pretty much ingrained itself into my every awake thoughts. So the plan was to own as many damn guitars as I could afford. So last year I went on a binge and bought 80 guitars. Now that was a fun plan. : What I didn't know was that the plan would bring another plan, which is my current plan: to acquire a tele-shaped guitar for each pickup configuration I enjoy. So far, we have: Traditional Tele (MojoTwanger Hot Rod w/ Fralin Blues Specials & Koa T with OC Duff custom winds): Tele w/ TV Jones Pickup (Crook T-style): Tele w/ P90s (Tom Anderson Cobra): Tele w/ dual HBs (Don Grosh Hollow Carve Top T): So what's next? Well, I can't achieve world domination until I get a Trussart. Must have a Trussart. And I still want that Green Bender from www.RiceCustomGuitars.com!
