    Hello! I am currently a college student and have been playing guitar since I was a freshman in high school. Joined this forum because I heard it was the best. Right off the bat, I will admit something... I do not own a Tele. My main guitar is a 2018 Gibson SG Standard tuned down to B standard. As the name implies, I play mainly doom and stoner metal, but I appreciate all forms of heavy music. I am a bit of a pedal addict (especially fuzz) but have been trying to tone it down recently. Anyways, glad to be a part of this community.

    Welcome to TDPRI and greetings from Finland!

    You’re right, this is by far the best guitar forum I’ve seen. Great people and very friendly too. A lot of nice threads.

    And don’t you worry, you’ll soon be Tele-addicted when reading this forum :D

    Br,

    Yeah, a lot of us started out here without a Tele - including me.

    Welcome from a few states west of you.

    Fender.com used to have a video of someone playing metal on a red American Professional Telecaster. I am not finding it right now, but it was pretty cool.

    That guitar and color is on my "I would really love to have one of these" list. It's just a matter of justifying the expense - which I can't do. I have a nice Tele now that scratches that itch.

    My main gear:

    ibanez s621qm
    2018 Gibson SG Standard
    Epiphone G-400 Pro
    Fender Player P Bass

    Current pedal board is a Jerry Cantrell wah, Russian muff, Boss DS-1, Boss flanger and an OBNE Dark Star pad reverb. There are many more pedals than that around the house though, lol.

    Amp is an Orange OR15 head through a 1X12. Cheap, loud, gets the job done.

    Single coil lovers have a saying: "You can always add more dirt, but you can't add more clean."

    That is (mostly) true - to me anyways. :D

    I know Jim Root from Slipknot had a signature Tele and Strat, but Slipknot's not exactly my style of metal. Haha.

    Your amp sounds like my wife’s cousin!

    Yes this is John from Baroness. They are classified in the stoner:doom metal category but to me it’s all rock n roll.

    Unlike other metal guys who play a Tele with humbuckers John plays single coil Teles. The other guitarist in that band is named Gina and she too shreds on a Tele.

    I come from the Black Sabbath school of thought when I'm playing. Bluesy styled stuff, very riff heavy. Bands like Sleep, Electric Wizard, Eyehategod, Bongzilla, etc.

    Not often you hear guys my age talking about Sabbath, haha.
