I looked up a sig model Tele after seeing it in a Richie Kotzen rig run down. It has a series-parallel knob instead of a tone knob. Kotzen said it came out in Japan in 97' and is avalible here now. I havent seen one up close but am thinking it works the same way as the MPC switch. Any of you guys seen or played one?

Have a look,

Normally, other than the 72' thin line (with Humbuckers), I dont pay much attention to Tele's but I kind a like the sound of this one.

I could do that, Like the color. I really like that type of tremelo too. I like the longer bar.The thing with the Kotzen Tele was the phase knob. I've looked at it more and it is like the mpc but the pick ups give it more of a tone range than the old mpc. By switching the pick ups and rolling the volume up or down it goes from a true clean tele sound to a heavy distortion (depending on your amp of course) and the phase knob gives you the same kind d of effect as the MPC only it seems to be more intense with Tele. When I get home I'll post another video I found with Kotzen explaining it better.

OK, sorry for the delay but heres the better guitar run down I was telling you about. Ritchie explains what does what and it is something like Electra would have made back in the day.
