Marshall crunch plus Tele snarl = Sonic goodness
Did a quick lead clip over a backing of whose origin I am unawares. Simply called Rain, so I left it as such.

The playing isn't the greatest for sure and you can hear the single coil noise as well as a shorting guitar cord that I haven't had the time to replace as of yet.... Hope you all like the sound and I would most appreciate any comments you might have good or bad.

I really dig the tele sound!

I have had nothing but religious experiences with my Tele and Marshall over the last few years! I like the way you can roll the tone off for some more meat if you want. I actually prefer the sound of a Tele bridge pickup to the sound of a strat bridge pickup with my Marshall.:dude

Thanks much mang! I am going to be making more tele clips for sure. I love the bridge pickup on the tele... IT is just so snarling and in your face!

Thanks much Rich!
This tele is really making me pee my pants. I don't know why I haven't owned one before. I dig the sound of the bridge pickup here more than I do a Strat as well. It is just THERE. I am lovin' this guitar!

Nice sweetness mixed with the snarl and bite. Just like a Tele ought to sound. I prefer a tone with less pronounced treble, but that's just me. I think you have a good combination working there!

I had a cheap ole Nashville Tele that I put a seymore duncan quarter pound in the bridge. It turned the trebly stock guitar into a RAWK MACHEEEEN!

That being said, the quarter pound does take away some of the trebly goodness that the original tele pickup has in it.:eek:

Hey thanks for listening man!
I think overall I will go for a reduced treble sound as well. I was just reveling in the clarity of the single coils...lol. Playing one of these EXTREEEEEMELY honest guitars after years of being a humbucker only guy, the clarity of the singles just is slaying me. I can easily reduce the treble so it isn't so strident!

Zane,
I completely concur with you!:dude It ain't my daddys tele anymore... Teles are just killer rock machines! I think I will always own one now! I am hearing awesome things about the Lentz teles.

Hey Rich,
I really think I dig the stock pickups. Might think about a set of booty shakin' booteek pickups for it later though. But you can sure bet they will be vintage style!
I am thinking about pulling the neck pickup and changing the pickguard to make it an Esquire!

You bet Lentz's are where it's at. Put it on the bridge pup,& roll the tone back a little bit ,& your in "humbucker" territory. Got the best neck pups I ever heard! He gonna have some cool new models.

So much better than a strat for girth and cruch.

A tele is more versitile than almost any guitar and it took me 20 years to figure that out.

Another fan of Tele into Marshall style amps, as well as others. One of my favorite all time guitars.
