In this video of Arctic Monkeys performing the songs Teddy Picker and Crying Lightning at Eurockéennes de Belfort 2011, Jamie Cook can be seen playing a Fender Telecaster Custom. [0:25](http://youtu.be/cOIZU0Kjrc8?t=25s) into the video provides a good look at the guitar and some of its details. The pickup configuration (a humbucker in the neck position and a single coil in the bridge) identifies it as a Tele Custom. It also looks to have a tremolo installed. The concert lighting makes it hard to tell, but the finish appears to be "Mocha", paired with a black pickguard. Another video of Arctic Monkeys playing Lollapalooza 2011 shows Jamie Cook with this same guitar at the [27:24 mark](http://youtu.be/56Vgbk1716k?t=27m24s), during the song Crying Lightning. The lighting shows off the guitar finish more clearly.more
In this photo, Dave Grohl is seen playing a Fender Telecaster Custom. The pickup configuration can be clearly seen, which identifies it as a Tele Custom. The black and white photo makes it hard to say what the finish is with certainty, but it appears to be black with a black pickguard.more
In this image, The Edge can be seen holding a Fender Classic Series Telecaster Custom electric guitar with a black pickguard and maple neck. The guitar appears to have a brown finish. Edge plays this guitar in the music video for U2's song [*Vertigo*](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98W9QuMq-2k). A good shot of the guitar can be seen [at the 0:13 mark in this video](https://youtu.be/Z0FIN7tMEIA?t=13s) of U2 performing *Magnificent* live in London at BBC Rooftop.more
This photo of Arcade Fire front-man Win Butler performing live shows him playing a black Fender Telecaster Custom guitar. The year is not known - several sources on the web say it is between a 1972 and 1980 model, although none are backed up with legitimate proof. Looks like Win Butler's Tele has duct tape on a few spots.more
In this photo, Tom Smith of Editors is playing at T-mobile INmusic festival on June 6, 2009. The guitar he's playing (and can frequently be seen playing in other photos and videos) is a Fender Telecaster Custom, black finish, maple neck. This photo shows the tone/volume knobs and the pickup selector switch have been removed.more
Justin Lockey plays a Fender Telecaster Custom electric guitar in this video of Editors performing the song *All Sparks* live @ Sziget 2013. Lockey's lead guitar riff carries the song on this performance, which he achieves using his Fender amps (which you can see pretty clearly behind him 0:41 into the video). You can get a pretty good look at the guitar at several places in the video, like 0:26. It is likely a vintage model, and my best guess on the finish is an aged Butterscotch Blonde. 2:40 shows you the pickup configuration of the Tele, which identifies it as a Tele Custom model. Throughout this song *All Sparks*, Justin keeps the pickup selector switch in the "up" position.more
Brody Dalle can be seen holding a Fender Telecaster Custom electric guitar in this Instagram photo. Due to the wear and tear that can be seen on the guitar, it is very likely a vintage model. The photo is captioned as follows: Brody Dalle with her Telecaster Custom. "I'm less afraid to play lead now. I have more ideas for leads. They're still simple – it's not like I'm f**king Van Halen, and nor would I want to be. I like more Pixies-style lead. I love playing the guitar. It's my favourite thing to do. I'm a good rhythm player – I just dig in." Dalle to "Guitar World." Photo by Richard Sibbald #fender #telecastermore
