Same argument with Tele, so Bigsby Teles are not Teles then or?
This is pretty much that Suhr. So this from link is more Tele then Suhr? XD
They both have tremolo, both are mahogany. Pickups are not classic Teles.
To me that Suhr is pretty much like vintage version of Richie Kotzen with mahogany body. That would be my description ...
I don't think you are going to win this argument around here, but don't let that stop you!
To your argument that there are no 2 pickup strats, I will give you one of a number of examples
As for the rest of your arguments, I tend to agree, in a way. All the humbucker/trem/ teles you listed are not true teles to me and plenty around here, more like telecaster shaped guitars. Of coure there are many who would completely disagree with me. Just because Fender took the track to mod their own designs to try to take a bite out of the aftermarket modification business by putting out all these mutant variations doesn't mean we buy into it.
To me and many others, Tele equals 2 single coils, single cutaway, Steel bridge plate at it's core. A bigsby is the only approved trem, but that isn't classic tele. YMMV
The Reverb ad for the Bigsby equipped guitar says it is a "Tele tribute" since it does us a T style body.'
AngryTiger, I understand the point you are trying to make. The hard nose Tele people that inhabit this place are not so free with the Telecaster name. In fact, both of the Telecasters I own do not fit the stringent guidelines some of these people use to designate a Tele.
Thanks for showing us a smoking hot guitar. I would be happy to own and play it.
And welcome to the forum. Just keep your boxing gloves within arms reach at all times.
I know that classic Tele is SS with Ash ....
This is not a classic Tele in any way, and I've never said that it was. XD
I said it was T-Style inspired.
And that dual humbucker Mahogany Strat is nothing like Strat.
It's literally like any generic dual humbucker Mahogany guitar.
Sound isn't anything like Strat at all. -.-
Yeah, I came to an same conclusion that people here love that hardcore Teles, and not like "unique rip offs" of them.
IMHO, Tele-style or Strat-style refers to a body shape, and not a pickup configuration . If the latter, then a Les Paul could be referred to as a Telecaster, or a two pickup Reverend.
Sounding like a Tele doesn't make it a Tele, and many Teles sound very different than a standard Tele...mine included having Fralin SP43 pickups which have a strong P90 tone component. Would you call a Nashville Tele a Strat-style,or S-style guitar because it has the Strat pickup configuration ? It's the body style that determines, not the pickup configuration or tone.
I don't know for you , but I for sure wouldn't call this one Tele.
And this one also.
Well, you're approaching it 180 degrees opposite the norm. If you meant inspired by sound, then you should have said it that way so as not to confuse the issue. And the only T-style influence I hear on that video is the little bit of finger picking the player does..it can't be identified with any Telecaster specific tone that I know of.
First one sounds like SG alike. XD
Second one sounds like any generic EMG mahogany guitar so .....
My bad then.
This one is Tele-sound-inspired.
Are we now okey?
Bridge, and bridge + neck, do sound very inspired by tele-sound.
Neck is tiny bit more warmer. I guess you would like it a little bit more snappier.
But otherwise, cool sounding guitar.
Fender would call them both Telecasters, even though they are variants of the traditional Tele.
I think we have to give you the benefit of the doubt, as English may not be your primary language and you seem to be new to this forum ( just joined last Friday ?) and perhaps to guitars and particularly Fender guitars. Am I correct ?
And the headstock's almost identical.
I'll second that, and raise you a Big Apple:
I triple it, are this 2 guitars then Strat also so?
The 99% sound like two mentioned above..... xD
Are then this Strats also?
Please lock this topic, before this goes wrong.
So, why don’t you simply come here to discuss about the tone of this guitar? Does it sound like a tele? Is it the pickup, or is it the player or what?
Trying to argue about this guitar being a Telecaster is so ridiculous that I wouldn’t even listen to the video...
