Nice sound from that tele! Could listen all day to that tone.

I am finding my HSS configuration to be very versatile.

Reverend guitars makes a few versatile models… one is the Crosscut, another is the Double Agent.

Quality is the best I’ve ever seen in a new guitar.

Used they are especially an amazing value… as they don’t sell as quickly as used Gibson, Fender, or Gretsch. I know this, as someone who has tried to sell a Reverend.

I was going to mention Reverend. Their bass contour control adds a level of versatility that is fantastic. Great value.

Cool - thanks for all of the advice.
Hadn't considered Gretsch and had not heard of Reverend guitars.
Definitely gives me some food for thought...

when I made the transition back into electric guitars, I bought a full sized archtop with 2 pickups. I wanted something that felt the same as an acoustic but gave me electric sounds. Keep trying things out until you find what you like.
