  1. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32515857] I know... I'm just yanking your chain a bit. :) I used to live in Merritt Island, and my parents later lived in the Tampa area, so I'm familiar with Siesta Key. We used to sail past it on the way down to do tarpon fishing off of Boca Grande. [/QUOTE] So much cool stuff in St Pete / Tampa. Siesta is pretty sleepy.
  2. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32515849] True. But my '62 Custom Telecaster is quite possibly the sexiest Tele of all... at least IMHO.

[/QUOTE] That’s beautiful. My next guitar will be a ‘62 custom Tele in surf green.
  3. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32515844] Sounds like a.... wait for it.... ...[I]sleepy[/I] little town! :badump: :lol: [/QUOTE] Not during the tourist season. That just ended though so I can actually go to SKOB again. Siesta Key is an island off of Sarasota, FL.
  4. [QUOTE=redEL34;n32514748] You don’t have the G.A.S. disease that some of us suffer from. It can be debilitating at times. [/QUOTE] I have mandolin and banjo gas Iike crazy right now. :D2
  5. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32514703] I'm on a half acre in a semi-rural area. Just close enough that I can get into the city fairly fast (an hour or two, depending on exactly where I need to go, and the traffic) but away from a lot of the noise, traffic and light pollution. And a half acre lot (with all of the neighbors having similar or larger sized lots) is big enough that it puts me far enough away from the neighbors that the inverse square law works in my favor... I can blast away as much as I want, whenever I want, and not disturb anyone. With 30 acres, I doubt anyone would hear you, even if you had Deep Purple playing a house party at your place... ;) [/QUOTE] I live in a condo on Siesta Key, FL. It’s a large complex with a main building and many detached units. For about ten months of the year there are only five units occupied. I can play at four in the morning and have never had a complaint.
  6. [QUOTE=jorhay1;n32514516] That Tele is Sexy AF!!!! :love::love::love::love::love::love::love:[/QUOTE] All Teles are sexy AF.
  7. [QUOTE=Red Ant;n32514502] Neat guitars, but insanely heavy. I've always found that the lightest guitars are most resonant and usually sound best, and haven't found hardly any exceptions to this. My strat is 6.3 lb and if you hold it by the headstock and rap on the body with your knuckles it rings like a bell.[/QUOTE] A while back I was in a Sam Ash in Orlando. I’m one of those guys who sees an ugly guitar and wonders who would ever buy that. The particular guitar this time was a Brad Paisley sig Telecaster. It weighs 5.6 pounds and has a nice big neck. Even unplugged it’s loud. I bought it immediately. It’s the nicest playing best sounding single coil guitar I own. Love that ugly thing.
