Hey there GMC - my name's Joe. I got my first guitar when I was about 8 or 9, a baby taylor acoustic. I played pretty sporadically for years, never going past the basic major chords until ~a couple months to a year ago. Now I'm 17 and trying to learn theory, new techniques, etc. I've been steadily improving lately and I decided to take the plunge and reforge myself into a mightily awesome™ guitarist, with the help of you great people at GMC. I'm going to work especially hard now as summer has just freed up a lot of time for me.

Before I got my telecaster (specifically the Aerodyne model, sorry I couldn't find a better link), I played a pretty beat up musicmaster which really barely even worked with an amp, but I'm pretty happy with the new one.

Anyway, hi.

Actually, those are my initials laugh.gif I've never played it (never even played a marshall, though I've heard enough good stuff about them to want to try them out). I play a fender GT which is I think somewhat rare model, 1x12 practice amp with some nice distortion options.



^ that's my gear.

By the way - I listen to all kinds of music. In fact I have over 64 gigs of music in my library, around 900 albums which I have all listened to which range from Tupac to Vai to Jeff Beck to Muse to AC/DC to NIN to Daft Punk to Al Green to Dinosaur Jr.... basically covering every genre you can think of.

My myspace is here where you can check a big list of pictures of just a few of my idols smile.gif ( and a geeky old pic of me) If you noticed the Jimmy Chamberlin pic, I'm also a drummer though I'm not too good (I can keep a beat but I'm much better with guitar).

Just wondering, how does your tele sound? No way I'm gonna get one, no offence, but IMO, i hate how they look, but im wondering what it sounds like.Thanks.

How can you hate how the tele looks? laugh.gif

Anyway, mine has a p-90 in the neck position which sounds a bit like a les paul, it looks like it's a humbucker but it's actually a single coil, though it sounds a bit in between to me. I don't know how to classify it like "warm" or "bright" or whatever because those seem to be pretty objective, but it gets a great sound and I can do anything from Zeppelin to some jazz or even the minuscule amount of Vai I can play sounds pretty good on it. The bridge pickup is standard tele, so it gets like a keith richards or bruce springsteen sound.

Hi JVM, welcome to GMC!
I like your guitar, it s rare to see a black tele lol tongue.gif

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
