While considering going to see Quo,I've been watching loads of videos,and the documentary etc on bbc last night. And the Tele has been becoming more appealing. (I used to really dislike them)

Unfortunatly what I'd want is not remotely available,and I'm not gonna pay what it would cost to get one made. Mind you,maybe I'll get lucky and pick up a Mexican one for cheap and I can take a drill to it.

i have a tele. don't really like it for gigs, just don't feel as instinctively comfortable with it as I do with my Strat, which i'm so used to i barely even notice i'm holding it.

that said, i love the tele for recording, and i think i actually play it better than the strat, maybe because i've to pay more attention to it

If I were to get a third guitar I think I'd go for a telecaster. I'd hold off and get an american standard. Francis Rossi's tele is modified a fair bit, well all the pick ups are changed. I was thinking if I got one would I end up putting a stacked pick up in the bridge. Is it still a telecaster then?

Really,unless I find one on a skip,I'm not gonna get one,I just can admit I like them now.
And,if I were to get one,I'd want to put a wraparound bridge on it,and some and of humbucker.

Thats cool..I'd rather it had the two pickups though. I would love a nice tele..but one with an 11" radius so I could rip around it to my liking

It's the fact it only has one that appeals to me. I only ever use the bridge pick up
