...... that's the part that makes me sick
...... enabler ....lol
So here's the funny thing guys , I had purchase a G&L Tele guitar from member @toddfan last year , but it just wasn't for me . Beautiful guitar all the way around too and toddfan was a pleasure to deal with too . But every time I walk into Guitar Center I play a Tele and just can't seem to put it down . 2 different animals I guess
oh yeah! we have a thinline lover, hello brother!
Guilty as charged Gooball Jeff!... LOL. Hollow bodies are my favourites. Show us a pic of yours if you can. :- )
wah lah! body was built and painted by me. I love thinlines they resonate really well. lovin the bigsby btw, and loving the classic vibe thunder!
I have a Squier Tele i got in 1988 that cost $200 back then and it's a great guitar. Then again, $200 in 1988 bucks is over $400 now so it's not the best argument.
I also have a Squier Thinline I got a couple years ago and it's a GREAT guitar, although it's on the high end for Squiers. I *think* it has the same pickups as the true Fender model. It's one of these: https://www.davephillipsmusicstore....ge-modified-72-tele-thinline-natural/15623335
Squier has low end complete crap and some really great stuff on the higher end.
Do it Ritch. You won't regret it. My buddy Dave picked one up months ago. It sounds great and you can't beat the price.
I don't have a Tele (yet) but a thinline with Bigsby would fit most nicely in my collection. Go for it Thunder... whatever one you choose. if you can play it before purchase, so much the better. G L W T Q. (good luck with the quest.
Rich, the Squier CV Teles really are as good as they say. I have American, Mexican, Indonesian and some custom Teles and the CVs hang with the best of them. You will not regret this purchase.
I bought one a couple of years ago, made in China. The only difference between mine and the "new" ones is that my barrel saddles are brass rather than chrome. A great guitar - pull the trigger.
This thread was started yesterday at 7am ......
Did you get the Tele yet?
I wonder, with his drive for Martin I can't help but say its a 50/50 chance he will return with the D Jr Martin.
I recently bought a squire tele for playing in the street and it’s a great guitar. I looked at this model also but I didn’t want to wait
Don't buy the guitar; save the money in a low interest savings account so it's there when you're dead....or not. I'd buy the guitar, for sure.
Interesting video; I chose guitar A which I believe is the subject guitar. I love the neck pickup sound.
I think Hendrix used a Tele where most people think is a Strat.
.... you know me too well . I'm actually going to a Martin roadshow / event at the end of the month . Might buy one then . Easier to come home with it on that night and just say , " honey , look , I won the door prize tonight !! "
Let's see, ok, Stratocaster Stratocaster Stratocaster Stratocaster...
Short Summary of Jimi Hendrix's Equipment
As far as electric guitars, Jimi Hendrix is mostly known for playing Fender Stratocasters. A few worth mentioning here is certainly the early 1960s white Stratocaster – which was allegedly the only guitar Jimi had with him when he first came to England. There’s also a 1963/64 Fiesta Red Stratocaster that he painted and then burned on stage at Monterey Pop Festival, and a black 1968 Stratocaster with a maple neck that was allegedly his favorite. But perhaps, the most notable of them all was the 1968 white Fender Stratocaster that Jimi played during the Woodstock festival on August 16, 1969. https://www.groundguitar.com/jimi-hendrix-gear/
Yes, of course he used a Strat. Most of the pictures I've/we've seen are with his Strats.
But he also used other electric guitars:
Back to the Telecaster.
I can't locate the article/source, but Hendrix purportedly used Noel Redding's Tele on Hey Joe and did some overdubs with it on other songs from...
It certainly sounds like a Telecaster on Hey Joe, even if there isn't any photographic/video-graphic proof.
