I do believe its a 1953 Telecaster.
A link to an article about Roy in Vintage Guitar
Yes it has to be Roy Buchanan for me. Please Don't Turn Me Away. I discovered him when I was young and not very happy, a long time ago. His story and his playing, along with Jaco's, still bring a tear.
Roy's good enough for me too.
Muddy and Albert Collins
I know I've already posted about Roy Buchanan but here's a couple more fantastic songs to check out.
nice bending stuff - was he using a B bender or similar thing?
wow that solo was nasty! i love that - minimal, and right in the pocket! thanks!
Oh man, gotta add Darkness on The Edge of Town by Springsteen....the entire album.....all snarling telecaster on the solos.
Thanks for responses.
some of you posting on the americana tip might like Aske Jacoby, you know that guy? amazing songwriter on tele. i met him in UK this year. he has a track 'my heart is a muscle' and others which are just great. recorded w the great jim keltner
Anything by Ed Bickert. My favourite Tele tone.
Any funk geeks here?
+1 on Zeppelin I! Also, Luther Perkins’ Esquire on Johnny Cash’s early records, Joe Strummer on the first two Clash albums or anything live, Chrissie Hynde on the first Pretenders album and Daniel Ash on all four of the Bauhaus albums. That should cover a lot of territory and show just how versatile the Tele is!
I remember seeing Roy B first on a tv special with Lonnie Mack and Albert Collins, around 1983, and scouring London for a record, anything! I eventually found a couple of arm and a leg import cd’s from a specialist shop. Some years before I had a CD player! Had to get a friend to copy them onto cassette, but never did get the cds back. And now with a couple of clicks I can see him at work. I don’t listen to him as much as I should nowadays - he still tears me up. Thanks Roy.
Have you listened to any of Brad Paisleys stuff, If you want some insane telecaster Licks, Listen to his album called 'Play', any of his other instrumentals are good too, like The Nervous Breakdown or Time Warp. Other songs of his that are good Telecaster Songs are ones like Celebrity and Ticks, Also The World.
My first Exposure to Telecaster was Joe Strummer and Smokin and Drinkin Bob Stinson of the Replacements. Not the pure Tele sounds most think of, but ripping single coil snarl was great for punk. So I will suggest Train in Vain
Jim Campilongo is another great tele player.
Love this guy. When you’re in the mood for something fun, quirky, and a little challenging, he’s your man.
