Chris guitar in CSC?

Actually, both of Chris' Tele Deluxe's are the reissue ones, not vitage 70's models. Basically, the main difference is that the pickups are now more sonically(sp?) similar to gibson humbuckers as opposed to the tone of the original fender wide range pickups. He's been using these guitars since at least as far back as the AROBTTH tour.

"Ahh.. i was sure they were vintage"

 

Maybe they are now. I do know that at least as recently as the Twisted Logic Tour he was playing reissues though. However, the ones he used to use were black, so this one could be new (old rather).

I don't think he currently uses it live for anything but CSC, but he's used them fairly extensively in the past. Usually though in the past, he played an all black model.

 

Thom Yorke also uses one a lot, but I know for sure his is vintage.

The Telecaster has a more "twangy sound" from it's bridge pickup. The telecaster only has two pickups, while the strat has three. Now i'm talking about the standard models. There are several varieties of the two models, and especially the telecaster. The thinline and deluxe has double humbuckers to complement the standard version, who has double singlecoils. It's all about taste and use.

Great comparison :)

Of course, its all about taste and use.

Not really a fan of a "twangy sound" (but I believe you can achieve this through gadgets, right?)

So, I still prefer a Strat. :P

The twangy sound is a combo of the pickup placement and the resonance of the guitar. You could probably replicate it to some degree, but a Strat will never sound like a tele and vice versa. And that's a great thing really :P

Admittedly, I've not played a Strat before :embarassed: But I love my Thinline's sound.

 

It's true that it's all up to your personal preference. Others can give you advice, but only you can decide what is best for yourself :nice:

 

I love the sound of my standard tele too. It's just a matter of finding the right combination of guitar/amp/effects. Here's a vid of me playing around with everything's not lost:
