As I mentioned in another thread, I’ve been playing drums in a Sunday night blues jam. The other night I noodled around on a couple of Telecasters that some of the guys there had (Teles pretty much dominated the scene, in fact). Those things play like BUTTER. I’m not a lead player at all - most of my guitar playing is acoustic strumming or rhythm on those rare occasions that I play an electric - but those Teles made me want to become a lightning-fast blues picker.
Was that my imagination? I hope so, 'cause if not I want a Tele now.
But I’m not getting that stupid model with the fake wear marks.
I get a kick out of some of the axes at the jam - one guy has a 1951 Fender bass, and another has a Gibson SG that he said is a '62.
