    i stumbled into electric over this past winter. had never really had the itch for it, love acoustic instruments so much. but, i had a couple electrics for setups and i really enjoyed the whole time with them. traded a taylor acoustic for a USA PRS custom 24, and then had to have this 70's tele in vintage blonde with humbucker in the neck. researched amps extensively, was going to build a tube amp using a kit from stewmac, but i didn't want the weight or the issues. Fender had just introduced the Deluxe Reverb tonemaster and after i heard and played thru it, i picked one up. i'm all set, and done now. i do have a driving urge to build a partscaster with two humbuckers though. picked up this faded surf green squire tele when i caught it on sale for $119. needed some fretwork, outside of that its really quite nice, and fun. put some 11's on it and raised the action a little and made it slide dedicated . i just turned 60 so i don't know whats going on with all this electric infusion in my life, but its really cool and i haven't dropped a lot into it. feel like a total beginner, its so different than playing an acoustic guitar-the touch, the feel. its a neat side step.

    What! No one told you serious mando heads all play tele's? Edit: I see you ended up with a tele after all. A Marshall might be a little intense. To keep the peace, you might better go with a Princeton Reverb and a couple of pedals. Both my strat and tele love mine. Rock on!

    I like Fender amps but this Marshall is perfect for the sound I’m going for. I can get a 50s rock/blues tone with no pedals.

    In the 50s, rock/blues tones came from Fender amplifiers, and pedals didn't come around until the 60s. Just sayin...

    Very good point. I’m not sure why this combination works so well for the tone I like but it does. Serendipity.
