My recently acquired relic.
This guy made his tele sing.
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:
Yes, here's a wider shot with the rest of the band.
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 .
Really like this one too !
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.
A man happy with his Tele:
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.

I Like this photo by my friend reiner Kluth. The guitar and hands are mine (both look much more worn now 11 years later) but that's not the point.
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.
He is equally happy wiht his dog:
