    Teles give just a *little bit more* than the Strats did. More bite, more balls, more chunk, more sweetness, more articulation. Notes ring more true. High gain absolutely screams and is a blast - especially with true single coils. Just get a noise gate on it. Still *very much* in the Fender world of tones. Since getting into Teles I'm more able to embrace the notch tones of the Strat which makes it such a unique instrument.[/QUOTE]

    Absolutely. That's the way I feel after playing strats for so long. You can really dig in on a tele. Sounds nothing like any other guitar. I currently have 30 guitars and I'm seriously considering selling at least 5 of them and picking up a really nice Fender telecaster after playing this cheap Squier Affinity. I can't put it down.

      Get an Albert Lee.

          Great guitars. I did get a Silhouette Special.

            Ha. That's the way I used to feel for 60 years. I thought of it as being just an uncomfortable cheap plank of wood with a couple pups in it. Yeah it IS! But man, it is just a singing guitar.

            Everyone should have at least a Tele or two, a Strat, an LP (or 2 or 3 or 10), an SG, and a shredder with a Floyd.

              Sub the SG with a long-tenon flat top LP double-cut, and you're on to something.
