    I always thought the guitar in this song (panned left, starts at the very beginning) was a Tele on the bridge pickup. Now that I have one I’m not so sure. Does it sound like a Tele to you?

    Can't say for sure, but he was known for his Jazzmaster, had both a white and a black one.

    He had two Jazzmasters...but no comb, apparently.

    I know, but (second guitarist) Porl Thompson does use a Telecaster sometimes

    The cure guitar player also played early era Peavey amplifiers! That puts a bigbig sm on my face.

    Yes, but I'd have to look up whether Porl was on those sessions. EDIT--yes he is.

    I saw this video the other day. Robert Smith also seems to use a Telecaster now and then, even if it's definitely not his main guitar
