    I figured the Teles deserved a thread too
    Post your favorite Tele tones here.. Here's one of mine.

    Keith on Can't You Hear Me Knocking.
    Then there's David Gilmour on Dogs.
    Two very different tones, but they both do it for me.

    @ElRey67 agreed. The first 2:43 of Can't You Hear Me Knocking is arguably the most bad ass sounding guitar tone ever recorded.

    Jim (and Roy), Jimmy, Don, and Prince. Just a few.

    I love Teles for how versatile they can be, but Jim Campilongo is someone who channels pure Tele tone IMO. This is an older Princeton Reverb vid that he did for Fender years ago (he’s all gray now) but still holds up. Tone for days.



    EDIT: +1 on Campilongo @BorderRadio :)

    Bit different but Julian Lage sounds pretty fantastic on his Tele, through a 57 Champ if memory serves!

    Roy Buchanan was a monster

    Funny thing about Keith Richards, we don’t really know when the Tele took over. He used a lot of Gibsons up to the Exile period.
