    Julian Lage blows me away. He currently plays a 50's tele and a tweed champ

    Yeah - this guy! He's on some Chet LP I have, and his playing is fantastic!

    Mathew Stevens is a younger jazz player (Tele, no less) from Canada, doing some cool things these days ... more on the atmospheric end, really nice playing. He has some albums under his own name, and plays with others like Esperanza Spalding, and in the group In Common with Walter Smith III, who we saw last summer at Newport Jazz.

    speaking of Newport Jazz, yet another event that has sadly already been cancelled for this year due to the current situation. :( Which means that Newport folk fest likely is cancelled as well, since it's the weekend before the jazz fest every year.

    the 50's-looking Tele is actually a 'Nachocaster', a high end build from a California company.

    Greg Amirault who, I believe, hails from Montreal. His East Of The Sun album is one of my Jazz guitar favorites. Great playing. Great tone.

    Eddie Durham ...A true pioneer of the electric guitar who in his later years played a regular gig in Goshen NY at a small hotel bar near where I was raised...
