    Original Op here...
    Great choices, varied different styles...
    What originally brought me to the tele was A. Summers and his delayed, phased outerspace sound and what keeps me here is the twang, which I think, speaks volume about how versatile a tele can be...

    Great Townsend video...
    I forgot Pete Anderson in my original post... Oh well

    Relax, you're correct.

    Just found it strange that the "Dwight's Used Records" album on which Dwight also put Understand Your Man gives no credit to Marty Stuart apart from producing the track, no guitar work.

    Don Rich was a GREAT player, but Tiger By The Tail was James Burton according to my bud Doyle Holly R.I.P. James is sooo modest and polite, that he wouldn't want to sway anyones opinion re Don who was a KILLER Tele stylist for sure !! Merle Haggard's early records were James for the most part also The Fugitive, Working Man Blues, Moma Tried etc. My favorite performance by Don Rich was on the Buckaroo's instrumental Chicken Pickin !!

    Not trying' to get under your skin, just kinda thought you would've known that being the old school country "aficionado" that you are.

    Ooh, only three?

    James Burton with Ricky Nelson — 'My Babe' or 'It's Late'.

    Just about any track from Chuck Prophet's Balinese Dancer album — I'll go for '110 in the Shade'.

    Joe Maphis on 'Stood Up' by Ricky Nelson.

    Ricky was a lucky guy — Joe and James!

    Brad Paisley "Long Sermon" - cause it's the first tune on his first album and I remember playing it a dozen times over and over again amazed at his tone and chops.



    Josh Smith "Crosscut Saw"





    Gutherie Trapp "Monkey Bars"

    Not much I can think of that hasn't already been covered, but I'll add Robbie Robertson's playing on the Bob Dylan album Planet Waves.

    And for a smooth pop rock Tele sound there's Hotel California.
