a tele with two humbuckers. oh wait, that's what i have, and i love it. i gotta say i'm tired of people saying it's not a tele if it has humbuckers. get over it!
Tell Tab Benoit that.
probably this one, my early christmas present. I finally got some lengthy playing time on it over the holidays, and it wore my fretting hand out, in a bad way. This necks gotta go... too thin, frets are too small.. I knew it when I bought it but hoped I could get used to it..
I'm keeping the guitar, I like it, but looking for a different neck now
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Jim Root and John 5 Teles. Not my style of music, but John 5 shreds. He apparently owns one Tele from every year, so I think he knows what a Tele is, and came out with something totally non-traditions, but haven't heard anyone bash his guitars. I have no place to say they are my least favorite or aren't Teles. I personally like Thinlines, A LOT! I think a Thinline is more of a Tele than a Tele-shaped guitar with a carved top and set neck! But to each his own. Sure my Classic Series Thinline doesn't sound like my 52AVRI, but that's the whole point in my opinion. Familiar body shape that I like, unmistakable Fender neck and feel, with a different tone. Works for me!
Get the black Jim Root for its ebony f-board!
I agree with KiethRichards post I owned a Nashville Tele and really tried to like it but I could never warm up to it.
Bought an American Deluxe in 2011. Beautiful guitar. Just beautiful. But the more I played it the less I liked it. Had it up for sale for a while, but I traded it recently for an American Nashville B-Bender, which I am slowly trying to master. Always sort of wanted a bender, so it worked out well in the end.
I wondered about the benders. Can you use them for other than Country?
I play it nearly every chance....no wait, I don't....
I made it purely out of curiosity. Now I know. EAGDBEA or BEADGBE are both as unnecessary to me as a neck pickup.
Plays great, sounds great but after 3 days I totally ignored the extra string.
Great wall art in my office though.
Yeah but it looks awesome.
This is a trick question, isn't it?
Least favorite Start or least favorite Les Paul. Sure. That's easy.
Least favorite Tele? Seriously?
Why not? Teles are one of the most diverse guitars made. With so many neck, body, pickup and bridge options not everyone is going to like everything.
I love pizza, but I'm not crazy about certain toppings.
That I own? This one that I made, cuz the rope binding does a number on my forearm:
Shame, it's got a tough look to it..
Oh, it sounds terrific. It's got a tapped bridge pickup and a five way switch. I just have to wear long sleeves when I play it!
Ive got two '72 Thinlines, I get why people say it's not a real Tele and sort of agree with that. Doesn't mean they aren't great guitars..
Is it the U neck? Classic or AV?
I know a lot of people like them, but for me, it's the CV Series Teles. I don't like their thin necks at all. The thin neck is the main reason why I got rid of my CV Thinline a month after I got it.
