    Hey all. I've been here almost a year and realized I haven't posted yet :|

    I'm 45 and have been playing guitar since I bought my first acoustic at a yard sale when I was 17. Up until a year ago I owned mostly PRS guitars, and decided I wanted to try a Tele. I found a good deal on a new Affinity that had finish damage that occurred on delivery to the shop - a chip on the rear of the upper bout that was all the way through to the wood. It was out of sight from the front, it didn't really affect playability, so I jumped on it, and I negotiated free shipping with the seller. Needless to say I was hooked, and it's one of my favorite guitars to play. Pic attached. The color was listed as Butterscotch Blonde, but I think that's either a misnomer, or the color on this run was wrong, because there's absolutely no blonde to it. It's all Butterscotch.

    I've recently been looking at a Classic Vibe Thinline 70's Tele, and I almost pulled the trigger today. Then, I saw the email come through about the giveaway, so I decided to hold off just in case I win (which I usually don't lol).

    Anyway, just thought I'd say hey. Glad to be part of such a great community.

  18. All I do here is lurk a bit lately. I'm not finding the enthusiasm these days. Maybe if I got off my wallet and bucked up for the prime membership, I'd be motivated.o_O

    I was feeling bad about not welcoming you earlier, but then I read your comment and I don't feel tardy at all. :)
