I'm a grown man who can't stop buying grown-man toys (guitars). It's an endless hole of fun, and there are different things I cherish about each and every axe that I own. This particular guitar is the first electric guitar I ever purchased. As much as I value my other instruments, I can't seem to find one that I like more than the Telecaster.
I'm not saying hotels are out of the question, but if you're starting out on the tour circuit, finding people to put you up for the night is pretty easy if you just ask. We simply had a sign at the merch booth: "Can we sleep on your floor tonight?" Eighty percent of the time we'd get an offer, and that's where the real fun, and stories, began.
