    I got a Tele. A 10 year old US tele American Deluxe. Classic configuration, neck and bridge single coils (noiseless on mine).

    I plug it into my Princeton Reverb '65 Reissue

    I am a very happy man. It is the ultimate gigging guitar. The neck pickup has such a great sound for jazz with just a touch of roll off. Why did I ever waste my time playing things with f-holes?

    Other people are invited to say nice things about Telecasters.

    Plus one on the stock Telecaster. I have a'66 Custom Telecaster with a rosewood board, narrow neck (I usually prefer more width and depth), skinny frets, too much roll-off on the neck pup and I LOVE IT TO BITS. I did replace the original steel threaded-rod barrels with some semi-intonated brass-barrels from StewMac which I like a LOT. Generally I use the middle position with treble roll-off to taste for a jazz-like tone or more occasionally, the bridge pup with varying degrees of r/o. There is just something about a Tele....which is not to say by any means that I neglect my arch-tops, or my other solids or semis. I just find the guitar inviting. Ninety-five percent of my periodic insomniac and habitual 5am unplugged practice is on the Tee. LOVE it.

    +1 on this. Handy for those of who have apt. neighbors to worry about at odd hrs. Plus the ergonomics are so nice with the neck access.

    I have an American Vintage Hot Rod 52 Telecaster that I play through a vintage 1965 Princeton with a Fender Branded JBL D110F. As the amp is non reverb, I use a Tone Candy Spring Fever pedal for reverb. The Guitar is strung with Thomastic flatwound 12's.

    The Duncan Mini Humbucker puts out a superb jazz sound with this rig. Jazz on a Tele? You bet! Archtops are my favorite guitars, but solid bodies have a special place as well.

    Danocaster T into a Princeton Reverb has been my main (and only) rig for the past year and I've never been happier.

    I was researching Archtops and looking to get something hollow with a piezo to blend neck and acoustic sounds when I played this tele. Middle position blending in HB and bridge is what I was looking for and the neck plays like a dream.

    Here's a G&L ASAT Classic prototype I found in the mid-90's (a dealer near G&L was selling a bunch of prototypes). Really nice player, great tone.

    Double bound body, bound neck, Seymour Duncan pu's, figured body, looks like macassar ebony fingerboard. When the light hits it right there's a very fine glitter in the finish (see last pic).

    I'm not entirely sure if this counts as a tele, but it's at least half a tele ;-)]

    Rich creamery pick ups.

    No I don't think I'll mod my US tele. I might get a classic vibe and dick around with it though... Those guitars are seriously nicely put together.
