What's your thought on the fender telecaster?

I really like how it looks (bad way to choose a guitar )

It's a great guitar, just crap for metal.

Then again, you don't really buy a single coil for metal :P
My "Rig":

Fender American Telecaster
Boss OD-2
EHX Small Clone
EHX SMM avec HAZARAI

they have them with humbuckers.

depends on ur style. depends on which model/make of tele.


you need to try one for urself. this is really a pretty lame thread.

Amazing guitar, once you've had one, you never go back, such a good clean tone, cuts through walls of noise, you'll always be heard, and its got a nice squeal when overdrive too
really quick neck, perfectly weighted and balanced
yeh, i have lots of nice things to say about it
crap for metal/ heavier rock thou...

i got a 72 deluxe tele which has 2 humbuckers and the gritty dirty overdriven sound it gets is amazing, with a twang too
#9
i like it. the bridge pick up and the neck pickup are like polar opposites, the neck pick up is really warm and nice and the bridge pick up is really trebley and twangy. the guitar feels nice too. what kind of music do you play?
gear

Fender Standard Tele (with kill-switch)
PRS SE Custom
Fender Hot Rod Deville
Boss DD-3 Delay

^^haha, congrats, you got me to click you pika Hawt!

my schecter kicks ass. btw. and depends on ur amp.



TS, MOP threw me a bit. but i think ud like teles. i mean, mines got two humbuckers and push pulls. really versatile.
some of them are a little bulky tho. a body contoured model helps.

1. His name is spelled Jonny (I don't know if it was by your error or you thought you'd correct me).

2. I tried quoting the other person who mentioned teles not being good for heavier rock but UG's been acting weird (or it could be my laptop). But the fact still remains, Jonny uses his Tele plus to get some pretty harsh (but great) tones out of his tele.

Johnny Greenwood and John 5 both use HUMBUCKER equipped Telecasters, as does Jim Root, so it's really a pretty poor argument. It's about as bad as the Iron Maiden & Strats argument (they use stacked single coils).

As long as there are production model Fender telecasters with humbuckers, I don't see it failing as an argument.

^If bastardized editions count, then everything can be played on any model. All Telecaster-shaped guitars don't have the Tele sound, in my world at least. When asked about Telecasters, I always assume the question is about Telecasters with Telecaster hardware and Telecaster pickups.

However, he did say he just likes the shape, so... but still.

If it makes your day, I clicked you right back (hmm, don't think there's any innuendo in there... ). Also hawt, although I don't think that's really you.

The h was a slip-up on my part. But even though he does use it for harsher tones, I haven't heard him use a tight, focused distortion like you'd use for metal. However, it can be done. I do it every once in a while.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
