What "endorsements?"



Trying to spread more misinformation like your post that BB King started playing a Gibson Lucille 40 years before Gibson made the first Gibson Lucille?



You still don't know what Guitar BB used on his 1950s recordings, do you?


Had it not been for wikipedia, you wouldn't know.

The very small list of players who play some brand of Tele other than Fender really proves the point that the Fender Tele is still the best. Most of the few players mentioned are not even known for playing Teles.


That doesn't at all prove Fender Tele's are "the best"

Lucille is the only guitar I can think of that has a "name" and I'd bet if you asked 100 people "What is Lucille?" at least half would say BB King's guitar... well maybe as long as those 100 people were over 40 years old.

U R Correct! BB used a Fender and Gibson Hollow bodies on his early recordings. Then in 1958, he started using 335s, then 355s, then in 1980, Gibson made the Lucille for BB which is basically a 355 without f holes.

The point remains that BB is not iconic with the Esquire. He's iconic for Lucille.

It proves nothing.

Fender is the single biggest guitar manufacturer in the world, and has been making Tele-shaped guitars 3 decades longer than just about any other maker (except G&L). This means Fender's historical output of Teles is orders of magnitude larger than almost anyone else's, and that they will be available from more retail outlets- new or used- than anyone eles's. That also means by sheer force of statistics, Fender will have produced more excellent (and awful) Teles than some companies have produced Teles.

That does not mean that Fender's are better than everyone else's, just that a given player looking for a "Tele" of a given price and quality will have more options from Fender than from anyone else.

Yes that is the point I made about 100 posts ago when I first mentioned BB. Actually among Jazz and Blues players, BB is most iconic for his use of 335s, 345s & 355s which are the guitars that he used on his greatest recordings in the 60s & 70s before the first Gibson Lucille was ever made.

He actually calls most of his 335esque guitars Lucille. So it's not just one guitar. And that came from the horses mouth at a concert his I went to.

But yeah, the Gibson Lucille is a 345 I believe. However, like I said, when he refers to Lucille, he is not talking about one specific [type of] guitar

Yes, if I remember correctly the first guitar that BB named Lucille was a $35 Gibson acoustic that was named after a woman who started a fight at a joint he was playing at. Two guys fighting over Lucille knocked over a barrel full of burning oil which started a fire in the joint. BB ran out of the joint and remembered that he left his guitar behind. So he went back into the burning building to get his guitar. Later he named it Lucille to remind himself not to make that mistake again.

Page used the DragonTele on the first Led Zeppelin Album and on cuts on subsequent albums, Including Stairway to Heaven.

So yes some agree with you about the DragonTele being is his most iconic.

Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles used that white double neck SG on the live performances of Hotel California. I'm not sure if he did on the record but that's quite an iconic guitar.

Page's tele is iconic if you know page as a guitarist, but just a person who doesn't look into the guitars he had would definitely be more familiar with his les Pauls. There are so many live shows of him playing les Pauls, you be forgiven if you didn't even know he ever played a Tele.

1. One guitar being better than the other is a matter of personal preference. Not something you should decide for others.
2. Endorsements, publicity, vulture capitalism, ... made fender bigger than they should've been.

When I think of Garcia I think of this strat. He played it on the Europe 72' album

example....and amazing song

He has more guitars that are arguably more iconic like "The Wolf" and "The Tiger"

And obviously:



The Ocedoc. Any guitar by Paul Langudeoc would be an honor to play for 5 minutes lol
