epiphone do replicas.
never liked em although he got a decent sound out of them at the time

I like his playing. I just think they're all wrong aesthetically. Still, I suppose it worked if he was looking for a trademark.

what do you have to do to qualify as being 'indie'?

Don't you have to be signed to an independent label? What constitutes an independent label, independent from what?

I'm nmot signed to any label: does thaat make me independent, or just ######?

How can you tell if a band or singer is 'indie' by listening to them?

Don't be signed to a major. Do it for yourself, form your own 'label' and do everything independently.
Though 'indie' has become a genre: a bit 'alternative', a bit 'left field', 'authentic' and not major-label polished.

I had one of these...

… made for me in the style of one of these….

Will post a pic tmrw.

About 10 years ago, I had £150 burning a hole in my pocket for a new guitar and a shop in Manchester had a sale on Squier guitars, so I went to buy a Tele. When I got there, all the Teles had gone, but - as I was there and I had the cash in my pocket - I bought a Strat instead.

But I never got on with it: too heavy, too unwieldy, could never get a tone I liked - so it sat, unloved and unplayed, in its gig bag in the spare room for nigh on 8 years. When we moved house three years ago, my other half said "What *are* you going to do with this guitar?" At that time I'd come across a guitar-maker called Carl Flint who was always looking for 'interesting projects' so I asked if he could cannibalise my unloved strat for hardware and the neck, but build me a Tele Thinline body. As he'd not done a hollow-body, he used me/my guitar as a guinea pig. When it came to the sound-hole, we thought it'd be unusual for it to have the Ricky 'curve' on it, so we bit the bullet and put one in.

Unlike its predecessor, I love my 'frankenstein' Tele. Light, dead easy to play and gets played pretty much every day. You might notice, it's only got 5 strings - it's tuned to 5-string open-G tuning a la Keef Richards. Makes it fun and interesting to play (takes me out of the 'concert-tuning' straight-jacket ).

Thanks for that - I like the look of it, and owning something unique made specially for you is worth more than the money.

It's pretty versatile. The clean sound isn't as harsh/trebly as a strat, it has a really good, 'dirty' middle and it has a really warm, but clear bottom.

Gives me a pretty good 'stonesy' sound. And really punchy on blocky/damped rhythm chords.

It's way better than I could've hoped for a 'guinea pig' - and it's improving as it plays in. It 'moved' a lot the first six months or so.

This is something I have yet to learn, that different electric guitar have a different sound. Obviously the distinction between acoustics is more pronounced, but listening to a recording I couldn't tell you whether it was recorded on a Tele or a Les Paul (e.g., Stairway to Heaven was recorded on a Tele but Page always used a Les Paul live). Saying that my humble Epiphone Les Paul has brilliant sustain, I can hear it now and haven't played it in a few days. ;)
