Do you know of other players who usually play another style/brand of guitar but have been know to also do a credible job playing the Telecaster.

John Scofield

Joe Bonamassa was a Tele man back in the day but rarely plays one these days.

Albert Lee - I think his Ernie Ball signature guitar is ugly and sounds too thin and not enough twang.

as absurd it sounds, Elvis top guitarist Scotty Moore used Esquires for training, but never on stage!

Angus and Malcolm Young used one Tele for backup in their early years in Australia.
It had a HB on neck (for Angus) and a Gretsch synchro (for Malcolm) on the bridge position.
They didn't have enough money for a 2nd SG and a Gretsch Duojet. So the Tele was used as an economy solution.
