Totally. All other guitars are for little girls.You know that some people are just going to have to get all serious about the OP......
Guitars are cool....
Teles just happen to be the coolest....
I'm constantly amazed that so many guys get KILLER sounds and just tear it up on less perfect designs...Those are the real men right there!
Try playing some Stevie Ray Vaughan on a Les Paul. Then play some SRV on a Tele and get back to me.A telecaster is no more "versatile" than any other guitar. You can use any guitar for any kind of music. This whole "versatility" comment people drag out for teles has absolutely no real basis.
So far, so good . . .It may not be your guitar of choice . . .
Says whom? And by what verifiable (accent on verifiable authority?. . . but if you can't do it with a Tele, you're not a real guitar player.
And people think the Strat fanbois can be obnoxious!Teles should be required audition guitars.
Everything YOU want it to.Yeah, I went there.
It seems it does everything.
I only picked one up recently, and other guitars (owned or previously owned) include strats, Les Pauls, PRS, Ibanez and so on.
The Tele just covers it all. Clean sounds to die for. _All_ pickup positions usable. Crank up the gain and it does crunch or RAWWWWK tones with ease. Humbuckers not required.
I keep going back to the Tele.
Therefore, the Telecaster is the Best Guitar.
Here endeth the lesson.
