    It is certainly a classic sound. Of course it's not quite the same experience via tiny computer speakers. It would be wonderful to hear live. All the same, I think our ears extrapolate to some degree. Very nice playing. Thanks for posting.

    Nice everything...tone, feel...
    For me, the Telecaster is 90% about the neck pickup and 9% about the middle.
    I like a fat, clean tone with just a touch of delay, just like that.

    Very nice! And yes, a clean Telecaster is a thing of beauty. I will gravitate towards playing less and less clean over a period of time, then dial it back to clean and say “ooooh! I forgot about this!”

    Sounds good!

    Been playing for over 60 years, always clean (can’t stand the sound of any OD or dirt) the Tele is my guitar of choice.

    It sounds good, but I'd hardly call it clean. I hear quite a bit of hair there.

    Actually the same stuff you just played through a semi hollow with p 90’s would have sounded better!

    Very nice playing KrenarCilku. Thanks for posting it.
    I've toyed with various pedals over my 40 years with Teles and always come back to plugging straight into a clean amp. Home playing only now and much as I love my new 57 Champ (thanks Santa!) the little Wem I've had since the 70s is still my Number 1.

    Nice, man!

    And, I totally agree... clean is a very sweet thing. (Well, for me, clean means with a bit of reverb, or delay slap back, and a touch of compression.)

    What for? In my band I ALWAYS have a TS-808 ON... The kind of music we do does't accept cleans

    Sounded great! Too bad you had to give up the ES-335 Dot, though. I love those s well.
