    there are so many more than 5. The 5 they picked are all great tele people, but they have MANY equals. Maybe 100.

    That would be a fun question: Can you name 100 great tele centric players?

    That is such a great picture. Agree 100%. Roy knew his way around a Tele like nobody's business.

    It would be a vastly better article without the clickbait "top 5" in the headline. No, actually, it would be the same interesting article, but without the faux controversy the author so clearly wants to stir up.
