Guthrie uses Floyd Cassista Tele but has a Road Worn Tele. Joe Dart has some MIM'S and Squires but uses Fender American Jazz and his Musicman Signature. Rocco Palidino does use Vintage Squire and Others. I am sure they sound good on all of them but they didn't limit themselves to MIM AND Squire. And I'm guessing there have been some upgrade work done. A top quality Bass rewards playing a lot and developing skill with hard work.
