    Eh? That link you posted for proof isn't working. But I just went to look at his previous posts... I don't see anything trolly. I didn't look that hard... but you know... seems safe. And even if he's not trolling, maybe someone might have the same question.

    My answer: Ray Davies (formerly of The Kinks) does.

    Some proof - link is dead my good man.

    To the OP - I don't know any famous musicians at all. All my friends are dropouts and metalheads. Sorry.

    David Gilmour uses them quite often. He used a couple of the Pulse tour and another quite recently on Jools Holland's Later show.

    Dave Edmunds played one at Expo '92 in Seville.

    Ted Greene had a bunch of 'em.

    Graham Coxon from Blur played 'em.

    I read on here once that Springsteen has a collection of '52RI necks and bodies (not sure if it's true).

    Most REALLY famous pickers have the REAL DEAL!

    Thanks,

    With respect, the only person the OP seems to be aggravating is you. Yeah he asks a lot of repetitive questions, but this is a forum dedicated to telecaster discussion, so the topics in general are pretty repetitive. He doesn't appear to be rude to anybody, correct me if I am missing something. Perhaps just try to avoid his threads if they bother you so much.

    :lol: I use one too and almost recorded an album on one.

    Doesn't Billy Kirchen use/used one?

    That Jeff Beck tele looks too blonde/yellow to be a '52ri.
