    He's one of the top Country artists but if you can get past that he is a really good guitarist.

    To be fair to Sam the Tele isn't really a heavy rock guitar, more known for its twang and snap.
    Neither is the Strat without modifications, but it's faired better than the Tele in those genres.

    You can make a telecaster do anything, it's the perfect Electric guitar

    Oh yeah, anything is doable if you process the signal enough. You could play heavy rock on a ukulele with the right FX.

    Fender guitars don't sonically lend themselves to heavy rock music though, in their basic form. That's how the Superstrat was born. Eddie Van Halen dropped a Gibson PAF humbucker in a Strat type guitar and the rest is history.
    From there on in we got Jackson, Ibanez, Kramer, Washburn, Dean...all making Stratocaster design guitars with humbuckers and a Floyd Rose.

    Even heavy rock Strat loyalists modify their guitars, from Malmsteen to Dave Murray. They change the stock pickups and process the shit out of their guitars signal. Hendrix used a Fuzz Face.

    You do make some valid points of course.

    But when the likes of Page and Beck were playing in the Yardbirds (which is essentially when Page was using the Tele) the sort of heavy signal processing just wasn't available. Fuzz Face, Tone Bender, Copi Kat was about it; I read an article once the US and I think from memory they said that in '68 there were only about a dozen effects pedals available. They got most of their sound simply by over driving valve amps and playing with different valves.

    Any way more to the point I would have agreed with on the Tele's unsuitability for heavier music at one time until a few years ago now I was trying a Tele out in a shop (Highland Music, Birmingham Al.) and looking round for an amp to plug into I randomly plugged into a Mesa Boogie. Man that combination just blew me away! I spent the next hour just running through my repertoire of AC/DC/ Sabbath/ Purple riffs (no Smoke though)and it was just an awesome combination.

    it may be an excellent guitar, but personal preference is that I rekon it looks like a dog.

    That said, no doubt some of 'you people' wont appreciate the shape of the corvette or streamer, and I won't bore you with talk of wood and resonance.

    huh huh huh wood.

    OK I can see where you have been going wrong now.

    DOG


    TELECASTER


    Your music will improve if you learn to tell the difference between these two. Maybe you should try an instrument that looks more like a dog such as bagpipes.

    Any way glad that confusion is sorted out.

    It's alright, we know Jimbo goes for looks as opposed to tone, hence why he's got a Warwick instead of a Stingray

    Agreed, they may be the best Guitars in the world but always look a little too hillbilly for me lol. Give me a Les Paul or a Gretsch any day of the week

    I know what you mean.

    Townsend used a Tele at skull-splitting volume for a while as well.

    It's an age old debate. You could even go into mahogany is more open grained than ash and alder, so Gibson guitars have a darker tone than Fenders, which is why they started putting a maple cap on Les Paul's. As you will know.

    It's interesting that Tony Iommis first SG had single coil P90's in it and all he used was a Treble Booster with his Amp.

    Personally, if I'm playing Heavy Rock at home through the Orange without any boost or FX, my Sheraton sounds better than the Teles. The pickups drive the amp better and the tone is warmer.

    lol some right guitar snobs!!! Apologies for having an opinion here...

    Ive not played a stingray, but from what I've heard (and Ive heard them a lot) the tone is not for me. not as much growl as a warwick

    They all sound wank when the sound engineer gets involved

    I don't mind what anyone plays mate, I just spent a lot of time reading up on stuff and experimentation with different products.

    There you go again it's dogs that growl! Are you sure it is a guitar (or a Warwick) you are playing and not just plugging the pooch into the amp?
