Telecaster Hurts Like Heaven sound

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make a MIDI of Hurts Like Heaven, but none of the guitars i can use in my program sound good to the song. Can anybody who owns a telecaster (maybe a thinline 72) record the sound like it was used on the album and live? It'll help me very much. I only need 1 tone because i can edit it.

No, he really plays a tele. Where have you seen him playing a strat on hurts like heaven. He plays a tele in Live 2012.

He used the Strat several times more than he used a Tele, and I would venture to guess his guitar tone was created around the Strat sound.
