    I saw an article this morning that stated clearly that it would be a list of the most iconic telecaster style guitar players in music history regardless of genre. Ironically not included in the list were most notably all of the following players:

    Brad Paisley
    Waylon Jennings
    Hank Williams Jr.
    James Burton
    Buck Owens
    Luther Perkins
    John Jorgenson
    Reggie Young
    Brent Mason
    Prince
    Neil Young
    Don Rich
    Jimmy Page

    This list is by no means complete as I'm sure you all know but these were the ones that came to mind first.

    well, Prince didn't play telecasters. he played a guitar that was a lot like a telecaster.

    but a list of tele players without Don Rich is pretty lame.

    I find it hard to believe that a list on the interwebnets was not complete and accurate.;)

    so, who was ON the list?

    I can see that leaving off some of the names on your list of exclusions seems strange; but guys like Paisley - as good and great as he is - came around after the third or fourth Tele Revival; he probably wasn't even born when my '68 was sold off cheap because nobody wanted them anymore.

    So it might be difficult (for an old guy like me) to classify some of your list as 'iconic'. It all depends on the competition, I guess.
