    while I do love virtually any guitar - Teles do hold a special spot in my collection:

    "Candy", on the left, is no longer with us ... her organs will live on in other builds by myself (body being finished now) and others (neck and orig CAR body have moved on to other ST forum members :))

    and ... almost forgot this Tele entirely (perhaps because she bears MUCH more similarities to an SG or LP)

    It's the alien (?) strap on the middle Tele that tells it all, @IronSchef.

    ahh - the Satriani design planet waves planet-lock straps ... seriously, I swear by these things - they look super-cool and securely lock on w/o ANY mod to the strap pins. I have duplicates of a couple of the patterns, I dig 'em so much!

    The Tele is definitely not my first choice! It'll always be a Strat. Then It's probably a toss up between a Jazzmaster or maybe a Jaguar and the Tele. Then there is also that Gibson/Epiphone thing!

    Those are the only guitars I own ... along with ones with Paul in it: either Les or Reed. :)

    Ain't this great?! I have 2 Strat SE's and major GAS for an Epiphone Les Paul Studio, but ... I know at some future time I will acquire a Tele. Don't know when, don't know what model (hope it's a Thinline haha) but I've got this tingling warm glow that it will happen someday and I will then feel complete. (Till the next GAS kicks in anyway!!)
    Hope my very large GinTonic that I have just quaffed isn't showing a little there ... I'm celebrating the start of the UK football season and the fact that my wife has an electric solid body.

    I really go back and forth on Teles and Strats, depending what day of the week it is.

    But to my ears, the Tele is unquestionably what an electrified guitar SHOULD sound like. The perfect 'Telecaster sound' simply can't be beat.

    Sorry but Les Pauls are the greatest guitar. Telecasters are the best Fenders though.

    I really like Teles, and there are some beautiful ones pictured, but I'm still a Strat guy.
