Over years I’ve gigged with teles, lots of strats, a few Gibsons. A PRS was my main gigger for about 10 years. Having said that, it seems I always return to the tele. Right now I’m using a used standard tele for a wedding cover band, a instrumental trio, and a praise and worship gig. The tele can handle them all.....jazz, rock, country, blues, etc. The 2 pickup design seems so simple but they cover so much ground. Ok, just had to put that out there.
