    You can’t fix a flat with a Tele, but you can at least fight off a predatory tow truck driver...

    The horror, the horror.

    Just because to drive a Cadillac, you needn’t belittle pickup trucks!

    Tough room...

    That build took me months to complete. Believe me, my self deprecation is squarely tongue-in-cheek...it sounds fantastic!

    Of course.
    Never met a Tele I didn’t like!

    PRS guitars have a jewel like refinement, but sometimes I just want rudeness and crudeness!
    My #1 is a partsotele.

    That’s it! I can’t take any more.

    I’m going home to mother!

    “Dude. You’re an old man. You’d be a burden to your aged mother.”

    “Well, she wouldn’t make me look at Telecasters ever again.”

    “There’s something to be said for that.”

    “You can come visit. She won’t make you look at Telecasters, either. She might make you look at my baby book, though.”

    “Is there a picture of naked Baby Les on a little bearskin rug?”

    “Two. One was taken when I was a baby, and one that was taken later for comparison purposes.”

    “How much later?”

    “I dunno. Couple weeks ago. Oddly enough, I needed a bigger rug this time.”

    I had a black Ibanez Pro-Line V. It was pointy and had bladed humbuckers and a locking wang bar. I spent way too much time trying to learn Panama from tab on that thing, before even really learning the basics like cowboy chords or how to palm mute.

    I eventually traded it for a trans black Yamaha Pacifica about 1991, which eventually went toward my first bought-new guitar about 1994, a tricolor burst Fender 60s Strat. I was totally in an EC/SRV/EJ kinda mode by then.

    You might be the only person I know who keeps their guitar on a table runner.

    Presumably you’ve heard of the couch...

    You’re the only person I know - on this forum - that can identify a table runner. Civilized you are. :cool:

    (There was no good light at the black leather couch and Markie’s white one was too far away)

    I’m also fully housebroken, which is why my wife tolerates me.

    No wonder mine always scowled at me.

    Hey, if she didn’t want me to pee in the backyard she shouldn’t have kept our one bathroom tied up hours...
