    If LesStrat played a Tele, this would be it.

    So, yeah, y'all have been rolled, patrolled, trolled, and extolled! Great Tele thread, but I do not have a dog in this hunt.
    I knew it! You sneaky bastard!

    I turned the Tele, a sweet Yamaha PAc712 and a few others into a 1973 Les Paul Standard with a SuperDistortion. It's really the only guitar anyone would ever need....

    By the OP's standard Mike Stern is a 'can't do'. His tele (a Yamaha actually) is equipped with 59 and Hot Rails.

    In reality, my #1 Frankenstrat is the only electric guitar I need. I've had my fair share of Teles, down to the Esquire I assembled a few years ago. But alas, I no longer have any of them. While I was able to get what I wanted tone wise and playability wise out of them, they all had one inherent thing that would bug me.... the balance. It would make the guitar want to go straight across the body without holding on to it where as my Frankenstrat will keep an upward angle if I tilt it and let go. So, I will stick with my Strats and others that balance the way I like them.

    A Telecaster isn't for everyone. A classic Telecaster with the traditional single coil pickups, not a humbucker, Strat neck pickup, P90, or any other pickup type Telecaster is not a guitar to be taken lightly. You get out of it what you put into it. It is the most responsive guitar I have ever played. The people who agree that it is among the most versatile of guitars, have learned to play them. In comparison to a Strat, where I sit there and switch pickups all day, I us my fingers and hands to more or less massage tones from my Telecaster. All I own and play are Telecasters.

    The neck pickup? One of my most favorite guitar pickups.

    Speak for yourself, Ace.

    The rest of the world would choose a LP.

    My only issue with using only a Tele is I need a whammy bar.
