An American Classic
What can I say except this guitar is an American classic. A bare-bones guitar with just two pick-ups and minimal parameter settings, the bright and rich sound works for almost any rock genre. Personally prefer it over the fender strat.
I love teles. Wasn't even on the market for one, but came across this 1978 that was well worn, definitely looks like it has some history. Pickups sound nice and mellow, yet still have the distinctive twang. I go through phases where I play this one a bunch instead of my '78 Tele Custom.
Mostly Been a Strat Guy...
I bought a floor sample though Musician's Friend - the blond one, a classic look. Just starting to use it but I rally am enjoying it - the classic tones, big chunky neck feels great in my hand. I watched an interview with G.E. Smith countering the view that the Tele is limited by it's unique toal quality. See it for yourself but he talks about using it for all types of music including jazz and he gives some quick examples. Check it out. He's pitching his model but the point applies to Teles in general. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnQYoRYedF0
An iconic instrument especially in rock/alternative
This was my first full sized guitar that I pieced together with a lot of help from my dad and a friend. This guitar basically inspired me by default when I was a kid considering the amount of times my dad would play Radiohead in the car. I didn't even know who Jonny Greenwood was as a person, but I definitely knew what he was capable doing with this amazing guitar.
