I've read posts here and elsewhere that talk about modern vs. vintage Tele tone. My own observations from playing '90s and '00s American Teles with a 6-saddle bridge compared to vintage reissues is the modern tone is fatter and thicker with higher output and capable of good crunch rock tones, but roll off the volume knob and the sound is still unmistakably Tele. Whereas vintage is cleaner, snappier, thinner and distorted tones are sort of grainy. Is this the general consensus among players who have played lots and lots of different Teles? If this is accepted, perhaps the most important question is which electronic or physical properties of the guitars account for the differences?
