So, for me, the answer to the original question is ‘Telecaster’.
I also had a 64 tele worst thing I ever did was sell it.

I have both. A Tele is a straight swiss army knife guitar. Great. The main reason I bought a Strat is for positions 2 and 4...you can't get that sound from anything else.

You can’t really get the #1 position from anything else either. A strat is a totally unique animal, nothing’s else sounds like a strat. Some people love it (I play a strat for 90% of my electric playing), some people hate it, but there’s nothing else like it. A tele is a great guitar, but I never find a reason to play it when there’s a strat there. Give me a strat 90% of the time and a solid body P90 axe the other 10% of the time and I have all of the sounds I ever need out of an electric guitar. A hot tele bridge pickup with some dirt sounds great, but I like a bridge P90 with dirt more, so teles get squeezed out of my playing altogether.

I have 54+ guitars/basses in my collection.

IF I HAD to choose 2 out of my collection that would cover most styles for me, it would be these 2.

My Tom Anderson IS the configured the way I prefer because it super versatile tonally and can cover a lot of styles. I do have quite a few "Classic" Fender Tele's,but I've never bonded with them.

'03 Tom Anderson Hollow T Drop Top HSH:



As for a Strat style guitar, my Suhr offers me what I prefer from a Strat.

I personally want/need a humbucker in the bridge, as I've never cared for the strat bridge single coil pickup.

This Suhr SSH have vintage style pickups and I can cover a lot of different musical genres with it.

'15 Suhr Classic Pro SSH:

Comfort Ergonomics: Strat by a wide margin

Looks: Telecaster by a slim margin

Tone: Of course its personal but Tele by a slim margin.


X factor: Telecaster. Strats and Les Pauls. “Everyone” has one. Their ubiquitousness makes them common and boring in a way. While the Tele still somehow retains some uniqueness even though they are common as potato chips too.

My choice: Neither. Stratocaster HSS and Tele Deluxe

I have both, but have to say, I prefer my tele partscaster. However, I have to say the most comfortable body I ever held is a jazzmaster. I have had an idea for awhile to build a jazzcaster esquire. I think I am going to start gathering parts. Think the pickup will be a Seymour Duncan La Brea.

Does anyone know which one sells more? My guess is Strat.
