sounds odd ,but do you think it wouldn't sound crap if you used a tele and the overdrive channel with the gain around 3ish (just so it's a thin/medium overdrive)? because i've found the cleans on it suck, the overdrive is nice.. has anyone experienced this before?

all in all 5150 has only the distortion channel to its advantage... the tele's distortion with that specific amp would be pretty thin(not in a good way)...

I'll have to say you can get a nice Tone with a Tele with a Mild amount of Distortion runs Nicely on my Vox for that "Vintage Feel".. I never played on a 5150 but it shouldn't sound too bad.. way I see it.. give a try..

5150 is good for distortion. So are Tele's.

I don't see the problem.

A Tele would sound quite good with a 5150. I've used a friends strat with mine on many an occasion and I was always able to get some nice tones out of it. Also, the cleans on the 5150 aren't as bad as you guys think. I use the low gain input and the rhythm channel for my OD's and the lead channel with the gain zero'd for my cleans. The lead channel has a slightly darker voicing than the rhythm channel so it can get some pretty jazzy cleans if you back the volume of the guitar down a bit.
