    I love this combination so much, I had to start a new YouTube channel. The tone is so clean, and classic. Would appreciate your comments on the channel (if possible),not trying to make any youtube money (will never happen anyway). I'm actually interested in what everyone has to say about this combo.

    I just migrated from Strat's to Tele's this week, after 25 years.

    Enough said.

    Thanks!

    Sounds great! And nice playing.

    Every time I hear a Delta Blues, I just appreciate them more and more. Awesome tone.

    I have to get another for stereo. I had no idea these amps existed.

    Thank you

    Absolutely outstanding! Great sound, great playing. The Tele is made for that, and your amp is right on the money.

    Awesome Photodude, you've got that classic tone nailed! What bucker is in the neck on that tele? And welcome to the forum, you're in a good place!

    "American Performer Double Tap™ Humbucking", I believe it's new as of last year.

    Appreciate everyone viewing and feedback. Not sure I could improve much on this tone. I'm totally open for any critiques.

    Perfect tone - and great funk playing - a place where teles shine.

    That's about as good as it gets: tone, feel, touch. The whole package right there.

    That tone is so addictive. Sorry for the slap bass, I just do it to entertain myself, I'm far from playing a bass. Thanks for watching and the comments!

    No need to apologize! It fits perfectly - when I first heard it, it was like wait...what? And then a big old grin just busted out!
    Thanks for posting- wonderful playing.

    I usually hate the slap thing on guitar (electric or acoustic) but your time and feel was so musical with it that I was just digging it.

    Tasty! Love it. Great playing - you've got an infectious groove. And you look like you're enjoying yourself!

    How does a Tele with a neck bucker handle cleans compared to a single coil in that position? I feel like the neck pup on a Tele is kind of unbeatable for clean and pure, but I've seen these models with the neck bucker gaining in popularity.

    Great stuff!

    Well, to my ear, it's thicker, warmer, and still clean. And with the splitting, I love it even more. But, the stock Tele's sound amazing to me as well. It's pretty cool to have so many options.

    Thank you!
