    I know there are plenty out there, but John 5 brings the best out of Telecaster to me!
    I really liked this with Nikki Sixx, where does it come from!

    I like these three who play teles extensively yet have very non-traditional tones:

    Graham Coxon
    Jonny Greenwood
    Andy Summers

    Lots of great picks (no pun)...but based on air-time on my turntable/phone/mp3 player in the last year: Roy Buchanan and Jim Campilongo. Hands down.

    Roy B was the guy who really sold me on the Tele. I'm really liking Julian Lage, he is holding his own againt the best of the best Tele players imo. Keith Richards is legendary on the Tele. Mick Green and Wilko J really made me take notice as well
