Can Lance Armstrong play a Telecaster?

Would it need overwound pickups?

At the rate his life is going, picking up the guitar may be the only way he can make a living...

Q: how are Lance Armstrong and a Telecaster alike?

Not a bad joke man. And the first of its kind too.

I don't understand how they can take Lance's winnings from him based on
circumstantial evidence. Didn't all his blood tests come back clean? Guess he
was too big a target.

He may deign to play a Tele, but would probably demand a solid state amp.


He would likely be partial to the doping of silicon substrate...

Wow, rough crowd! LOL

SKILL + HARD WORK + TRAINING = FAME

FAME + MONEY + FEAR OF FAILURE = CHEATING

You can't say Lance was young, dumb, and full of c*m, because he is old enough to know better. What is it with these atheletes today? A little notoriety, some money, and their morals go right down the old crapper! What ever happened to honor, hard work, and a sense of fair play?

Oh yeah, the ridiculous amount of money these guys are paid! TEMPTATION, GREED, & SUCCESS!

An Esteban would fit his style best ,but it would defiantly need a Martin sticker on it.

Why not? It would appear he's pretty good at playing pretty much everything else.

Might need some extra help if he decides to go with pedals though...

-Doesn't matter if he's the best Tele player ever....
If enough people claim he can't play it.... then it must be true.
Hearsay rules, in the 21st century. Image is everything.*
(*witness the throngs of todays "musicians" who actually can't play, but have a stage performer style look!)

What OD Pedal goes best with Lance Armstrong?

Maybe the question should be "What OD Pedal goes best with Lance Armstrong?"
