72' Thinline has 2 humbuckers.

Edit: He's using the standard tele shape. So yeah...it sounds a bit twangy...but with that much effects you can't hear it much.

The 'twang' you're talking about is what gives the tele its uniqueness. Why would you want to hide it?

If thats not the sound for you then thats not the guitar for you.

Jim Root Tele and the Thinline one mentioned have buckers, go for it.

You could change the pickups on a standard tele if you want to alleviate some of the twang? Get a single coil sized humbucker?

maybe but as long as there is a nice crisp sound that is alright

A Shecter PT might be what you're after - tele shape but with buckers and no metal plate, the metal plate contributes to the telecaster's signature twang.
Actually called Mark!
