    Hi all,
    My name is Dan and I just signed up. I am from Utah and have played guitar for about 20yrs now. Nothing real serious but I have fun with it. I haven’t played very much in a while though and am just starting to get back into it more seriously. I’ve got an Epi LP that I bought back in the late 90s, made in Korea. I put Duncan pickups in it shortly after I bought it and recently put Mojotone Vitamin T tone caps in it. I also have a Gibson Blueshawk from the late 90s. I am currently looking to buy an ES-330, preferably a 59 reissue but possibly one of the new 2018 models. Anyway, good to be here!

    Oh BTW, my username is a reference to telemark skiing, not the Telecaster. I figured I should clarify that :)

    Thanks guys! Excited to be here. A but of backstory on my LP. I probably bought it around 1996ish, it was a 2nd but I honestly could never tell why, it looked great. I swapped out the pickups and then a few years later I loaned it to a friend of my older brother. That was a mistake because I didn't see the guitar for a few years. When he finally brought it back to me he had ripped most of the wiring out and took apart the bridge and tailpiece. At that time I wasn't playing a whole lot and I had my blueshawk so I just put the LP in the basement and there it sat until about a month ago when I decided to put it all back together. I wired it back up using the Mojotone caps (50's style) and put the bridge back together with some new strings and have been loving it ever since! I actually just put my Blueshawk up for sale though because I just ordered a 2018 ES-330!

    Ah... Yeah, I saw the Blueshawk for sale recently. It was super close to peaking my interest, but I went acoustic at the last moment.
    Hopefully it finds a good home, it looks like a player.

    That ES-330 should be a blast. I still haven't played the fully hollow 330 yet, but always think about them.
    My Sheraton will just have to make due until I can find more time for guitar. Haha. Josh

    Thanks Josh! Yeah the Blueshawk is a really nice guitar, really nice to play.just not really what I want as far as tone goes. I am really excited about the 330! Hopefully it will be here before Christmas :)

    Welcome aboard!

    I'm in Colorado Springs but make it to Moab now and then, particularly for Easter Jeep Safari, and I'll also be in St. George sometime in the next few weeks. I love Utah!
