    This was the late Tom Wheeler's Tele and the photo was on p80 of his "The Guitar Book". In 1974 when I bought the book I was an acoustic folkie, but something in this picture struck a chord that's stayed with me ever since. So it has to be on my list of favourite photos.

    Here's a thread about it:

    Awesome! PBBB! Butterfield, Bishop, Lay, and Bloomers. Where's Arnold? (Edit: After a little Googling, it seems he was just out of frame to the right in this Bluesville gig shot.)

    A ground-breaking racially integrated R&B act in a turbulent time.

    I really like this one , it puts the focus on a well worn instrument and not on the celebrity holding it .

    On my Pinterest I have a folder of guitar porn... and these are my tele favourites.

    I especially really like the Rory, David and Stevie pics - for me they have a rare feel about them because they're better known as strat players.

    Enjoy.

    Bsb blackguard; becasuse that is were it all started.

    60s tux for those formal occasions.

    70s hippy/flower power paisley.

    Thinline for all the old farts that can't lift a normal Tele.

    American Standard; because that's the standard.

    Oh, and Keef's HS Tele has got to get a mention, just because.

    Bloomfield didn't turn his Tele into a double cutaway, that was done by the next owner (left handed player John Nuese) after it was traded for a Les Paul.

    The line in the upper bout is extra cording from where that strap leather is tied. You can see the extra materiel to the right.
