sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

personally I dont like the design of anything made by Fender...... I'm sure the strats and tele is some damn fine instruments for surden things, but overall I realy realy dont like Fender and/or any of their products......

I'm more alike a BC Rich Warlock type of guy
.....and I sooooooo want to buy a ESP explorer some day!
#23
That would look cool with an ebony fretboard, shark fins, and the Jackson headstock.
#25
Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) played a chrome telecaster once and it was kind of cool...... he also had a black one with some text one......

they were nice
#26
Spending $400,000 on that is like spending $600 for a fat hooker. Its just not worth it.

a friend of mine said teles look "special". personally i think it doesnt look cool, not even the least bit. and i think his is one of those SKA lover taste. guess thats why they made an upgrade, the stratocaster (if not mistaken).

oh, and the shape is downright silly (though more practical than a flying v).

telecasters are just plain ugly. end of story
Sincerely,

if you want an ugly tele look no further than the ones with the bigsbys

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.
