Thank you so much man, much appreciated!
That's a lot of soul for a 23-year-old kid! Sounds great, and after acquiring a couple of Teles, I've come to appreciate the neck pickup, too.
Also over the course of my life I've gone from "it's gotta be humbuckers" to mostly single-coil guitars—especially when I got into surf music with the clean tones.
I love neck pickup cleans of (almost) all types; tele, strat, jazzmaster, p90, paf (most high-output hums sound like mud).
But I've never had a BRIDGE clean tone that I cared for until I got a tele!
Ha! I wish I had 1/100th of your talent.
I was playing this afternoon and had that clean Telecaster tone. Switched songs. Yech. Picked up my SG plugged into my VOX AC15C1. There was the tone I wanted.
sounds good but if you don't learn how to breathe while you're playing your gonna stroke out. J.S.
Manga movies are overrated anyways
Cool, sonds great!
Now try to put her through a good Fender´s tube amp and wait...
Thanks man! Ah, I wish I could.. the wallet ain't liking that idea at the moment lol... I tried this Fender Princeton Reverb once and it was amazing!
But there's a downside, to playing super clean, I think. When you make a series of mistakes, or if you're just having a bad day, there's nothing like big pedal board to get you by.
I've been doing my best, to focus on playing clean, the last dozen years. Some days, it sure isn't easy.
That's great, the tone on the neck position of a Tele has a little more spark, then the neck of a Strat. Both
have been used a million times by all, but the Tele tone is so beautiful.
And yet folks are constantly asking for pickup suggestions that will give them that Strat neck tone. Ie: Twisted Tele pickups.
I really want to build an Esquire clone, but that neck pickup goodness...
here's the full review and demo of the guitar if y'all are interested! thank you so much for the kind words again!
I had the same experience. I'd never appreciated the Tele's neck pickup 'til I got one (also 50s CV). I'd intended to swap out the neck pickup but was stunned by its beauty. I use a 65W amp turned down for clean with miles of headroom and plenty of bass, and a 5W turned up for compressed power tube dirty.
I play my American Standard Telecaster clean through either my Hot Rod Deluxe, my Crate Vintage Club 50 or my Blackheart Handsome Devil. My musical taste is different from yours. I like to play lots of 60s covers. But like in your case, the Telecaster delivers.
I have the same Squier Tele and I really love it. I had a little fret buzz at the 15-17th fret and I had a couple of high frets so I filed/dressed the frets and I keep the action pretty low and it plays great now. I use the same 11-46 guage strings. My guitar is made from a 3 piece block of ash. Its HEAVY...9.2 lbs. I'm considering doing the mod from the StewMac website which would install a 4 position Tele switch which would allow an out-of-phase position for the two pickups to get that "quack" added to the tonal pallette. I'll also probably do some shielding paint in the pickup cavities to help with single coil buzz since I will be doing some recording with this. I have a 64 Super Reverb, a Peavey Classic 20 MH, and a VHT Special 6 Ultra that I play it through....the guitar sounds phenomenal through all 3. Thanks for posting the videos. I really enjoy your playing and really like hearing that 6b9 chord in your progression on your original post. Keep up the great playing.
Sounds great! Love the tone!
thank you so much guys, I really appreciate the kind words! cheers!
Great fingers sounds real good. I agree with you I've always said nothing sounds better than a Telecaster played clean
As others have said, really nice tone and great feeling in your playing. I had one of those amps kicking around my house for awhile, never was able to get a tone out of it I liked with my tele. But then I'm spoiled on blackface Fender amps. What ever you do, NEVER try a Princeton Reverb.
6 chords? major7ths? I thought playing those would get you kicked out of this place! And even diminished 7ths!! What's the world coming to? All kidding aside, nice hearing your playing Krenar. If you ever hanker to get a thinline again, try one with p90s, makes it a whole other animal. Peace- TP
