Alex Kapranos is a Scottish musician, producer, lead singer, and guitarist of the band Franz Ferdinand. While he has a small guitar collection that includes less-known brands (Silvertone, Hagstrom, and Hoyer to name a few), Kapranos is a Fender Telecaster fanatic. His tone is characterized by being very raw, punchy, and thick, while at the same time remaining very clear. He achieves this by plugging straight into the amp, forgoing effects pedals. To quote the man himself: “One Guitar. One Cable. One amp. No bullshit.”
