Hi Brokentoes,

Thanks for the encouragement. I'll definitely keep pluckng away. It might be very frustrating at times but it can also be a great deal of fun and the sense of satisfaction when it goes right is great.

hi chaps
I just want to thank you for your help. unfortunatly I don't feel confident enough to buy the guitar sight unseen. So instead, today I'm going to look at a Fender American Standard Telecaster for sale privately and within resonable travelling distance. wish me luck! And thanks again.
