Wow. I think his sounds really nice:
Guy is a a great player with tone to spare !
I think it is a pleasant guitar tone. I don’t think it’s the best per se. I prefer a tele plugged straight into a tube amp and cranked for a raw and rude rock fest but that’s me. I think the versatility of the tele cannot be underestimated. It can definitely hold it’s own in all genres.
He plays great but that doesn't sound like a Telecaster to me hence not the best Tele tone.
Let me repeat stuff that has already been said that I agree with.
That's some nice tone. I'll try o get a similar one when I get home, I especially love how little you hear the pick attack.
But... well, maybe it IS Tele tone, 'cause my Strats sure don't sound like that right now.
It has nothing I'd associate with a Tele specifically about it though.
When it comes to Tele’s ...
If the OP wants to hear a wide range of useful tele tones, listen to Dan from "that pedal show".
His red tele can produce anything from jazzy cleans to Metal.
Strat player, so I don't know much about teles; but they are versatile. Roy Buchanan is awesome. I think he's as important as SRV is to the strat.
He is a good player and his tone is really nice, but I think it sounds sort of generic with the effects he is using. To me, this video of Matthew Lee is what the Tele tone is all about.
Dude can play.
Once you get all that modulation and distortion, the inherent tonal qualities of the guitar are diminished. It's more about the amp and effects. Honestly that could be a Strat, or a LP, or a Peavey.
I hear amp and reverb on that video, although it does sound pretty good.
I don't associate teles with a washed out sound.
..which is why I have a love/hate relationship with my Digitech RP-360.
I’m in love with that keyboard player. Sorry Mrs. Yaralag
That's is some good country pickin!
Here's another exceptional Tele player that embodies the Tele tone.
This, his second album, is a pinnacle of guitar playing...this guitar, this player, this song in particular come together in a Big Bang level event. The late, great Mr. Buchanan wrings such emotion from Nancy on this song...I can close my eyes and get lost in this performance. And...this album is rotten with wicked playing.
So... @Pisces One, the tone you posted about might be pretty keen, but, there are as many "perfect tones" as there are listeners.
@abnormaltoy wow, that was a good song. I like Roy Buchanan's playing a lot.
