    I saw a concert where Buddy Guy did quite a few songs using a Tele Deluxe (the one with two Full range humbuckers in it).

    Bloomfield used a Tele exclusively on Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited." And when Dylan went electric too:

    Kenny Neal, Sean Costello, Jimmy Vaughan back in the day, Johnny Guitar Watson used a tele (maybe an esquire) on many of his 50s recordings. If you are going to call Keith Richards a blues player, then you must certainly include Steve Cropper.

    "Back then, he alternated between guitars that are tonal opposites, -- Gibson’s big-band standard, the huge, voluptuous L-5 archtop, and Leo Fender’s spanking new Telecaster solid-body. The no-frills Tele was a new instrument for a new era and, not surprisingly, it helped the young guitarist develop a new sound. “To me,” he says of the Telecaster, “That’s a rock ‘n’ roll instrument.”
