    And then there's Il Duce/Rick Morrison/Myself! I love my Tone and the way I play when I'm hitting on all cylinders! I'm not bragging by any stretch of the imagination, it's just a really fun, joyful and experience for me when I'm playing and everything just seems to be forming and growing while my mind and body flow into the music!

    Robben Ford with his 1960 Tele. One of the best sounding Tele's out there.

    I'm not even a big fan, but the stuff I've heard from John Scofield on a tele is pretty amazing.

    The OP's mention, Rick Holmstrom, always sounds great. Albert Collins is still my fav of the "expected" telecaster tones. But like Il Duce says above, me, myself, and I, is what trips me out the most. :p

    My fave is Jim Campilongo
    Or maybe Keef
    No, it's Steve Cropper
    Oooh, Jim Weider
    How 'bout Guthrie Trapp

    I can't decide

    Hard to beat. I've loved his tone since the mid seventies when I first got into the Rolling Stones. For my money, he has the perfect rock tone. Pure, raw, and unadulterated with just the right amount of grind; the epitome of a tele through a cranked tweed.

    This Prince improv on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", which begins at 3:28, isn't too shabby:

    Roy Nichols, James Burton, Ray Flacke, Redd Volkart, and Brad Paisley. Flacke to me is prob my favorite. I can listen to the stuff he did with Ricky over and over and over.

    Ted Greene's Tele tone would give you what the Hawaiians call 'chicken skin' i.e. goosebumps.

    Syd Barrett is my no.1. I don't even think he knew what kind of a sound get could get from an esquire, one of those plug and play sort of guys.

    Steve Cropper

    Dave Gilmour

    Luther Perkins

    Mick Ronson

    Rory Gallagher

    Danny Gatton

    oh yeah and Bloomfield
