  • Who says a stock Tele can't get heavy? You be the judge

    I was listening to Wolfmother on the way to practice, so excuse the opening because I don't know the song at all and basically just made a 1/2 ass attempt to play it from memory.

    All stock Tele -> Way Huge Swollen Pickle -> Jet City JCA2112RC completely stock

    I spliced various examples of this rig together. I never touched the settings of any of it... just used my guitar volume and tone knobs to change things up. I think the cleans are more than passable in a live situation. Not pristine, but neither is my playing.

      Bad choice of song but the tones were pretty good. I have a soft spot for Tele's so that always colors my opinion

        haha it was on in the car on my drive over, and showed how clean the amp can get so I figured what the hell

        plus it's less than a minute long... the rest of the clip are samples of our own songs.

              That's about as heavy as I expect from a tele.

                    sounds great man. I've been wanting to switch to teles but I can't hybrid pick for **************** so it would be kinda embarrassing

                          Great tones indeed! Gotta love that twang sneaking up on your heavy riffing! Most guys I know hate it, I love it to death.

                          I remember tuning down my Peavey Reactor to C# and played Sabbath tunes on my ss Fender Deluxe 112 Plus. If I can make it sound good on that, I could've just imagine the sound of an actual Tele through my existing tube amps.

                              I want a Tele. Possibly an Esquire.

                              But that didn't sound all that heavy.

                              Good tones, though.
