    This American Strat I just rebuilt. I'd love a nice Botterscotch or Black Tele though!

    My ideal Fender is a Tele Deluxe. Same layout as my Les Pauls, but the brighter sound gives me a different color to paint with. I'm currently running ceramic pups in it, since we're playing heavier stuff, but I'm considering reloading the stock RI WR pups in it.

    Seriously been considering picking up the Squier version in white, and loading EMGs in it, ala Jim Root. Or the CV 50s Tele and putting a hot rails in the bridge.

    I may not be the norm but I don't even think about this stuff.

    I'm old school and back when I was a struggling musician I was happy to have all six stings and an amp that didn't blow.

    If a genie asked me which Fender I wanted, I think I'd have to go with a late 50's white/ blonde Esquire.

    Just give me a 60's Style SSS with a massive C neck, 9.5 radius and 6105 frets. My custom shop 60's is my #1.

    I like strats for blues playing but they are not very versatile to me when I need to be heavy with my band... plus I hate the strat shape lol but nevertheless nice guit!! i'm sure it gets alotta hours playtime lol

    I mostly play blues and classic rock. The strat gets me through most of it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE LP's. My R8 gets just as much play time as my strat but if I couldn't only own 1 guitar it would be a strat. Not totally sure why. They just feel right in my hands and I naturally gravitate to them.

    it's weird cause i'm the other way I like humbuckers or p-90s in the bridge on a tele and a single coil in the neck lol.. looks nice regardless and a seymour duncan in the neck is a bonus

    i think i have my ideal fender at the moment; i have been playing my modded JD telecaster like crazy this past year. this baby is my blues machine,i put some 56-12 strings on it and i can just wail on it without a pick and she stays in tune just fine. i was a little skeptical about the DiMarzios at first, but they've really grown on me. clean, they can really nail that distinctive classic tele tone, but if i want to play some thick fuzz, they still hold up.

    I like the Tele, but what is the guitar on the left? Reminds me of something I've seen before but I can't remember what.
