    Not sure why that's not the clear answer here. Id also consider Brad Paisley, but definitely Fender first and foremost.

    I put off buying The Blackguard Book fot too long. It's worth every penny. I'm assuming Leo Fender's contribution is rather taken as read.

    For respecting those before him and pulling it all together to fully utilize the capabilities of a Telecaster!

    LEO FENDER

    As soon as I saw this thread I thought of nominating either Marty Stuart or Jim Campilongo, but after reading through the posts; I must agree that it HAS to be Mr. Fender himself.
    We wouldn't have the best forum on the interwebs without him.

    I suppose the real answer might be Leo but in terms of adding to the lexicon of sounds coming from a Tele Bill certainly came to mind. He not only bends the strings but the neck as well creating a lot of subtle musical tension and beauty.
    I understand now that he's quite a gear head much like Methany but the first recordings I heard of him in the 70's it was just the guitar and amp.

    Don Rich would be an early innovator but the rest of the artists above don't suggest "Tele" to me. Well...Danny Gatton certainly kicks tail.

    Gotta be LEO FENDER otherwise poof!

    No Telecaster and all the guys above would be playing Kay Speed Demons and possibly not even a Les Paul would exist ...............

    Think about it, the Telecaster probably started all of that stuff.
