What about Roy Buchanan?
Others might be flashier but Burton and Cropper have the most impressive resumes IMO.
Waylon Jennings, with few effects phaser/chorus and his 53 wired out of phase later on. that was it both pickups on he got so many sounds out of his touch and his thumb. This is based on his live album
There are so many, so good Tele-players with kinda their own style. And I like most of them, many already mentioned but I will go for three: John 5 - even though I am way older than him, I really dig his style. That guy doesn't seem to have any limit. Can play any style as far as I have seen. Still, my absolute favourite is Greg Koch. As stunning player, always performs well and it's absolutely great to watch him. A nice guy with a humorous approach. Last but not least, the great George Edward Smith, better known as G.E. who played his Tele for many years with the Saturday Night Live Band.
Excluding myself of coarse There are many people I like a lot however for me it would be Mr. Volkaert and I don't really look at it as a best telecaster thing I look at it in a musician thing.. He is very creative and simply a fun for me to watch and listen to..
since the whole concept of tele and tele tone is new to me I certainly have to opinion on who is best. I think they are all amazing guys in their own right.
I do have to say that the videos in the front of the thread confused me a bit as they guy was great but he had a more Gibson tone what with all those humbuckers everywhere,
I never thought I'd be a traditionalist (kinda against my personality) but I think the Tele with a lipstick and the bridge pup is the perfect twang machine - unmatched.
Personally, I think Tab Benoit deserves a mention.
Bill Frisell. Jim Campiglono.
Very much dig on their buzz.
It has to be Keith Richards or Bruce Springsteen or Both!
Roy Buchanan . . .
and all of the above.
Keith Richards...Vince Gill..A caveman and a pretty player...Puy those two cats in a blender and see what comes out...WOW...!!!
My favorites have already been mentioned but theres also; Muddy Waters, Chrissie Hynde, Wilko Johnson, Rich Robinson,
i have to go with don rich, Buck Owens,Merle Haggard,Luther Perkins
+1 for marc ribot. he's the most exciting tele player for sure. listen to tom waits' rain dogs if you need proof.
campilongo is the all-around master IMO.
