Check this out! A detailed description of Brad Paisley's guitar collection. You can navigate around the gear page to see amps, effects, and accessories in Brad's rig as well.
Brad is definitely one of today's hotter tele players. Listen to any of the instrumentals on his albums (he usually features at least one) to hear some very amazing, tasteful playing.
Brad uses a lot of telecasters with McVay G-benders. He also has some Glaser-equipped guitars, like his '68 pink Paisley, as well as B- and D-bender equipped tele's. He seems to prefer Lindy Fralin pickups, and has quite the collection of Crook Custom guitars.
Paisley's tone (like you haven't heard it) is great, in my opinion. A little dirty, while still retaining classic country twang. His tone also has a lot of low-end beef, which is very cool. He uses Dr. Z amps, and has replaced the pickups in nearly every one of his guitars with aftermarket ones. Paisley is definitely out for great tone, and his gear page can give you a hint into what works for him. A great resource for those looking for that fat telecaster tone.
