    Not necessarily pics of you but just action tele pics in general..I will start.
    This is a pic of me actually , although it could have been anybody. Taken by a friend,... as you can see I am playing my 62 reissue. The strap was made by my" late" uncle..(gone 10 years now) He was a long time Teamster and kept a team of horses or two around all his life..It means a lot to me that he made the strap for me and I have used it for years. Big brass buckle and all.
    The guitar, only about 8 years old when the pic was taken is showing wear and tear. No big dings but only many fine scratches..(not usually noticeable but picked up by the camera)..No I am not playing through the Bandit.. Not that I wouldn't... My Bassman is off to the side.... Phil

    Hmm pretty much every pic Ive seen of Page playing the old Dragon Tele has screamed 'HOLY CRAP SOME ROCKING IS HAPPENING HERE'. Thats what made me first want one a long time ago in a galaxy far far away..

    Not a great pic, and not actually a tele-but here's Johnny Cash's Esquire. At the time I wasn't into tele's yet. I took this photo at the Fender museum around when Walk the Line came out.

    I always dug the old fashioned strap and cord, the wear, and just the cool link to music history. The thing about these instruments-they are fascinating and cool to see-but also you realize these are just guitars-and how much the operator is responsible for the music. Ive always known that-it just strikes you.

    A while later,as I fell asleep it clicked that the tele was the way to go.

    Just about any picture of Joe Strummer will show him playing either a Tele or an Esquire of some sort or another!

    The Master of the Telecaster himself in action.
    By looking at this picture, I can almost hear the powerful, distinctive sound he was famous for.

    Well I would probably give the nod to the born to run cover as my all time favourite. But I always loved this minutemen shot. I could only find a crappy pic of it, but I remember used to going to a bar that had this blown up, to a full sized poster and it was just awesome.

    I once thought the telecaster was a country instrument only. Not that's a bad thing, then I heard and saw this guy. Dixie Dregs - King Biscuit Flower Hour. I realized ANYTHING could be done on a tele!
