    The "meat and potatoes" of guitar. Simple, elegant, versatile. What more does one need? Every electric guitarist should own one.

    I'm pretty sure the solo from Black Dog was recorded with a Telecaster. That might make a good thread: "Which Led Zepplein songs were played on a Telecaster."

    Way cool!

    I thought that teles were a bit shrill (ice picky) until I got my hands on one. I like most guitars in general but I always had a fondness for telecasters. Love the twang but they do so much more than just that.

    I uh....what?

    Everyone I know who had a VW ten years ago, now drives something else. You may as well call the Telecaster, the Sears Roebuck of guitars. Baby, you picked the wrong horse! :^)

    I wondered if the solo on Black dog might have been. That sounds like a great idea for a thread!
