Do you have an all time favorite guitar solo that was played on a Telecaster?

    without being pedantic, a 'guitar solo' is a performance by one person on the guitar, without accompaniment as opposed to a 'lead break', which is to be considered a part of an ensemble piece. so with that in mind, this is one of my favourites:

    Jeff played the Tele-Gib built by Seymour Duncan on this album. It's a tele with 2 buckers. It's most definitely the guitar used on "...lovers" .

    Super Session was Bloomfield's '59 Les Paul. Great solo, but not a Tele.

    Albert Lee's "Luxury Liner" solo.
    I got to see him play it live with EmmyLou and the Hot band back 70's in their hay day at the Opera House in Seattle. Best acoustics for that band I ever heard. EmmyLou kept encouraging him to keep it going.
    Of course anything by Danny Gatton or Roy Buchanan.
