    I'd class this example of Magic Bus as twang, maybe not country but good grief what is he doing to it. Anyway, Pete Townshend can do both, and a lot of his recorded work is on a tele.

    Not his usual instrument, and I wouldn't classify his as a Tele hero by any stretch of the imagination, but I like this clip, and he seems to know what he's doing ;)

    How about one of the first great tele players?

    Jimmy Bryant.

    Spent much of his time on the neck pickup.
