    '70s Teles

    1970 till 1973 are not far away from Transition Telecasters, but later ... I think the weight is the great minus of late seventies Telecasters. But remember: our old buddy Ole Fuzzy always pointed out, that he was a huge fan of the seventies Telecasters !

    Question for fans of Page's Telecaster tone.

    That reminds me of old days back in the sixties: I did not understand a little thing of this odd ugly film and that stupid looking filmstar , and I wished, that the whole film would show only the Yardbirds. I remember too, that we played the Yardbird tunes, and our lead guitarist simply...
