What I don't understand is this:

All this Roo Baiting, and no Roo...

I wonder if he's out trying Teles?

Same here, in fact I was even feeling sorry for him, a poor misrepresented individual with sincerely held beliefs held up to ridicule by his peers...

... and then he posted a further balanced "Roo tele comment" in another forum...

So, carry on chaps... :lol:

I've just added Dave's old Baja to the Tele arsenal....



What a gorgeous looking ( and brilliant feeling /sounding ) guitar you have there !

( I am not just saying that because it is just like mine  - honest ) .... :wink:

Oh the pain / conflict !

Roo has been so genuinely helpful to me on the 'EVM12L' thread - but I just LOVE Telecasters !   For me , they are the purest and most intimate of guitars.  Try playing a Tele at high volumes through a clean channel without your effects rack - and we'll soon find out who has been practising lately ...    :wink:

Yeah, I'd love to see the Tele-haters post some clean Tele clips on youtube!

I've got to admit I sound a bit scr@ppy playing Tele's but it's only because there's nowhere to hide, I think they do make you a better player.  Gotta love this playing:-

Lovely clip there  :)

I also like the stuff that Jim Campilongo does on his Tele ( hard to believe he uses 9-42s ) - and of course the truly stellar Telecaster playing of that understated hero Albert Lee. Let us also not forget the minimalist but genius style of good ol' Wilko Johnson .


They all prove ( for me ) - that the Telecaster's greatest attribute - is that it conveys exactly what you bring to it as a player, nothing more , nothing less.   :)

I know I'm repeating myself, but if we're talking Tele players I must mention Roy Buchanan.  I saw him live in 1985 and although you couldn't imagine anyone less cool or rockstar-ish, the sheer power of the guy's playing was just unbelievable.  

That, to me, is how an electric guitar should be played - wringing out every sound you possibly can through the way you bend, squeeze and attack the strings.

I can't wait to play my Teles through the Martamp Deluxe I have on order.  Pure Fender-driven class  :)

I have a gig tonight and I have my Tele back after loaning it to a friend to tide him over. I have re strung it, cleaned it up and set it up and I am going to use it tonight at a gig with my dear old Strat in reserve.
