    To all the Pearl Jam fans here, Eddie Vedder is well-known for using Teles (Some of them heavily modified). Post pictures of different ones you spotted! I'm starting off with his '63 Black Holoflake.[​IMG]

    I don't know anything about his teles but I adore this man. That first solo album for Into The Wild is one of my favorite things ever recorded, and not only because I was a big fan of the book.

    Nice thread on an overlooked telecaster player! Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder specifically is the reason I picked the telecaster when I took an interest in the guitar 20+ years ago. I wish I had more info for you on his guitars, but I don't. But I'll enjoy the photos!

    You can still post the pictures of different Teles that you spot on PJ and EV tours, DVD's, etc. It's very hard to get infos about these guitars because he modifies them a lot. He pretty much inspired me to pick up a Tele too. I had my CV 50's repainted to Black Holoflake (Not exactly like his though) and I'm still not done modifing it.

    PS: I'm from Brazil, so I'm sorry for any English errors...

    By the way, here's another special one:

    The Brazilcaster
    [​IMG]

    This guitar was custom made and gifted to Eddie by a heavy fan (Sergio "Vedder") here in Brazil. He based the model on the Black Holoflake and only used brazillian wood and national-made hardware as a tribute to Eddie from all the brazillian fans. He played it in the shows and I was lucky enough to see that guitar from very close. A custom hardcase and a pedal were also included with the gift.

    Eddie Vedder Telecaster?
    Has he been strumming along on a Telecaster made to his specs as a "guitarist"?

    He does not have a signature Tele, the Brazilcaster was made heavily based (With a lot of picture observation, etc) on the guitar he most uses (The Black Holoflake). And he plays the guitar quite well IMO to also be considered a guitarist, the intro riff to "Rearviewmirror" was written and played by him, among many other PJ songs. This post was created because he owns and plays tons of different Teles.

    To the folks being disrespectful with nothing nice to say- Eddie Vedder has written some of the most recognizable rock n roll songs in the last 25 years and played with the Rolling Stones, the who, Bruce Springsteen, Neil young and just about every other major name in rock and roll that's still alive today- what have you done? So show some respect, or just don't comment. @Lakeabilene @GoldDeluxe5E3

    This thread starts with "To all the Pearl Jam fans here..." I wonder if they really understood that...

    Pearl Jam was one of my faves during my college years. Love the Tweed amps and Teles. Thanks to our Brazilian friend for posting this!
