So I finally bought a Telecaster a little while back. They’re cool and all, but what I wanted wasn’t a stock Tele. What I wanted was a hybrid monster that looked like a Tele, but sounded like a monster all it’s own. Unfortunately, on a high gain amplifier, the stock Tele sounds noisy and terrible. It sounds super sweet and clean on a low gain setting, but that’s not where I spend most of my time.
