    Bruce, because no one else of his success has played JUST a tele
    Burton, because of all those tasty pop and country licks
    Cropper, because no one else sounds sweeter on a tele
    Keef, because no one else looks cooler with a tele.

    With sincere apologies to Muddy, Joe, Don, and all the rest.

    I'd hate to be the guy who had to chisel Keith Richards face. That would take a while.

    Have to eschew the big names and go with all the players that pick up their Tele before the little no name gigs regardless of where you may be at the time .

    Tough Challenge! My four:

    Muddy Waters (Blues master)
    James Burton (Classic Tele licks for Elvis, Haggard and others...)
    Clarence White (Next level Tele with the B-bender. Special mention to Marty Stuart)
    Keith Richards (Recently said he'd take a Tele if asked to pick just one)

    Hurt me to leave out Don Rich and Waylon Jennings! Maybe "Mount Telemore" needs to be larger?

    I didn't read through all the posts, but my picks would be:

    Roy Buchanan
    G.E. Smith
    Jeff Baxter
    Jim Messina

    Remember Jeff's solo on "Do It Again," by Steeley Dan. And listen to Jim Messina on any Loggins & Messina song.

    Great list. I was waiting for Jesse Ed Davis to get a mention. ;)

    Off topic but when I saw that picture, all I could think of is Jerry Seinfeld saying "But I don't want to be a pirate!" :lol:
