Technically it’s Toshiro’s, but before I had my own electric guitar this is what I used when needed. I think I got my Christmas present early because he wanted me to stop playing this.

I have one with a b-bender. Changed its name to the Tericaster, after my long time girlfriend. And even if she kicks me to the curb, the Tericaster it will always be. I'll post photos if I can figure out how.

My yellow Xaviere. It's due for a major neck adjustment. Just like me!

Wife got this for me two Christmasess's ago. Been my main guitar (especially recording) ever since. Tele Modern Player with the body cut and a humbucker in the bridge (obviously.) Transparent black, but I can never get that to show in pictures. Hell, it's hard to see even up close. I never thought my trusty Strat (bought new in 1992) would ever play second fiddle, but here we are.

Well if anyone wins the lotto and wants to buy me something, I'll take this. And yes, I'd want it in bass boat green.

Brent Mason's new signature model is pretty cool, though I'm not a fan of the gold hardware. Probably the best tele player alive.

Some sweet teles here. I’ve always wanted a B-bender, or the Holy Grail of telecasters, the B/G double bender.



Here is a my humble tele, a mexican made with rosewood fingerboard and strat-style pickup layout.

Mine is a made-in-Mexico '99/'00 Classics Series Thinline Telecaster. It's in the style of '69 Telecaster so, dual single coil pickup, swoopy pickguard, skinny headstock. It's a beautiful sunburst with a pearloid pickguard and when I bought it used it had been upgraded with Fender Noiseless pickups. I had it upgraded with brass saddles. I think it's a looker and I dig the way it sounds. I used it for all the electric guitar for the Moss Palace Nur Ein entries, recorded direct through a Vox MV-50 AC head. I must have had it for over 10 years. 12 years? Not sure. I just checked my emails, turns out I bought it 10 years and 1 week ago!! Good times.

Roymond’s and Lunkhead’s both have an f-hole. .... are they actually semi hollow body guitars? Or is it just a groove?

They're semi-hollow:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Te ... r_Thinline
The Fender Telecaster Thinline is a semi-hollow guitar made by the Fender company. It is a Telecaster with body cavities. Designed by German luthier Roger Rossmeisl in 1968, it was introduced in 1969 and updated in 1972 by replacing the standard Telecaster pickups with a pair of Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups, bullet truss-rod and 3-bolt neck.

What Sam said, and mine is a Chinese rip-off with P90s.

All those guitars are very nice. I always thought the Thinlines were appealing, as well as the Customs, with neck humbucker and two volume two tones, ala Keith Richards.

Lunk, you might like the b-bender thing, a lot easier than pedal steel. I love it, and comments over the years here talked about "nice slide work" or the like.

I just wanted to mention that my modern player has a split humbucker in the bridge. Full on for some rawk or split for some twang. Although, really, that guitar doesn't twang nearly as much as a telecaster should.

I was admiring a nice semi-hollow tele at the local guitar shop but never pulled the trigger before she got sold. I kinda don't need another one anyway.
