of curse you can use whatever guitar you want as long as it sound good, even if its a pink hello kitty guitar. But this just makes you look very stupid.

I have this old Westfield Telecaster that was my first guitar, I founf it the oither day in the wardrobe with some dirty strings on it, i tuned it for a laugh and plugged it in, it does some amazing pinch harmoincs and chugging due to the trebbly pickups.

I rmember rightly, I was talking to RHCPfreak at the time, and he was like "woah, how do you get it to shredz"

Ah, I like teles... if theyre were as comfterble as a strat, it would be the best guitar hands down.

Check out Devin Townsend. Its not a Fender tele he uses its a LTD. He has it in a open D tuning. He pulls off heavy very well.

John 5 does it.

When speaking or listening, you don't focus on the mouth as it is creating words.

In a similar fashion, when music is being played or performed, you shouldn't focus on the instrument, as it is merely the "mouth" of the musician.

Try Brad Paisley. Hybrid Shred Picking isn't so unfamiliar on a telecaster. Telecasters were designed for Country picking.

I agree . this video just shows how versatile guitars are

the jim root sig tele looks awsome. his tele is the only metal looking tele ever.
#27
The thing is john 5 and Jim Root have heavily modified Teles to get the heavy sound out, you might as well just buy something else if you want heavy, it will be cheaper aswell.

also Teles are fugly as hell

Opinions are opinions. Personally, I think Brad Paisley Telecaster Signatures are really good-looking:











What I admire most is the tone you can pull out one.

This, my friends, is why telecasters are awesome. There is nothing they can't do.

Plus, they look so god damn classy.
#38
There is no need to add anything to this thread as John 5 has already been shown. It should be closed now so as not to confuse people to think you've to look any further than John 5 to get virtuosic playing with a telecaster,

Ritchie Kotzen pretty much outplays most people mentioned before, he's probaly one of the finest players to play a Tele.
