    Thanks for posting! I have a chopper T coming this week and I've had trouble finding any Clean tone clips of it, it's always dirt. Encouraging to hear it still has some tele singlecoil bite

    thanks man! I actually had a really good one but I also have a PRS SE245 Standard which has a lot of sentimental value to me and it covers the humbucker tone easily so I had to let go of the Dot and get the Tele. Until now, I haven't had as single ounce of regret, so I'm good. well, good until I get the Semihollow itch again lol cheers!

    That’s the neck pickup cool as an iced bourbon. Great playing.

    It's always good to bypass all the pedals and just play through the amp with perhaps a little of its reverb. It always reminds me of why Leo got it right the very first time.

    Great playing and quite inspiring. Thanks.

    The neck pickup on a telecaster is a great pickup. Personally, I often find I like the middle position a little bit better, but I am often wondering why rather many people seem to not really like the neck pickup much.

    What I have found is that I need to dial in the amp in order to fit the particular position. If I dial in my amp to fit the bridge pickup and start using the neck pickup, I don't like it. And vice versa. Once I dial everything in to get the most out of what the particual position provides I am really, really enjoying all of them. To me it is like the telecaster offers more personalities or some rather different sort of characters than many other guitars and thus it take a bit more tweaking to get the most out of them. Absolutely worth it though.

    Hey man, well, the Katana is a great piece of equipment. it's loud, light and responsive. I only use it on the clean channel and the reverb. for overdrives I rely on pedals. I find all the other channels to be very artificial sounding but I think it's worth your while just for the clean channel and using it as a clean pedal platform. It feels great under the fingers but if you're looking for a good amp for blues and classic rock, I would suggest you to go for the Boss Nextone amps, specifically the Nextone Artist. It has this beautiful punch in the midrange, it's warm, the bass response is immaculate and the idea behind it is great! If I had the means, I would literally go grab a Nextone Artist right now but the Katana will suffice for now. hope this is helpful, cheers!

    Wonderful!

    Is that the stock CV Squier neck PU?

    It sounds very Strat like (much like a Twang King neck).

    Whatever... nice playing and beautiful sounds!

    Keep going!!!

    I totally agree with you on the sound.
    And you play it beautifully.
    I bought a Classic Vibe Tele too and it became my favorite guitar the moment I plugged it in!

    Yes, they sound good clean...and dirty...and fuzzy...and overdriven...and boosted...and modulated...and...

    ok, cut to the chase—Telecasters sound good!
