Hello to all from Northeast Ohio. Just wanted to toss my log onto this other guitar fire! I just got this Sonic Blue MIM Telecaster from bandmate. I just wanted it. No other reason. He was selling, so I bought. I love the Tele sound, and along with the SG and the Ibanez I have the sonic spectrum pretty well covered. I also have an Applause acoustic and a 1967 Melody Maker that is a basket case, but I may have it restored just because. I have had it since 1982 when I bought it for 20 bucks at a garage sale. And as I took a picture the other day of all of them, I just realized that they all have rosewood fretboards. I think subconsciously I only buy rosewood fretboards.
