I wish I had thought of taking a camera to work back in '85-'86, when I was working at Hewgley's in Nashville. Chet was in there once in a while, as well as pretty much anybody else in the city or coming through on tour. He probably played a few Teles during his visits. After all, he would play anything that caught his eye.

I would like to see one of Hendrix playing a Tele.

I don’t know about playing (though apparently the solo on purple haze is a tele), but I think I remember seeing a photo of him sitting on a studio couch with one next to him once. Could be wrong though.

I read Hey Joe was done w/ a Tele, too.
