    Marty Stuart and Mike Campbell both have great Tele tone for sure. And then there is Keith Richards.

    Joe Strummer.

    A few others, but probably less known for playing Tele's.

    Technically an Esquire, but Paul McCartney on the Sgt Pepper album and especially Good Morning Good Morning.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! This question has no singular answer--tele model or player. It's what everybody prefers to be the best. I will agree that the right tele in the right hands can do it all. Platefire

    I second Laurie Wisefield, great player. Currently I love Josh Smith's sound.

    someone said Joe Walsh earlier in this thread and i can't say i disagree. he always has a full, transparent and glassy sound. seems like his amp or amps are always goosed up just enough to keep things interesting.
