the if you can only have 1 is your problem. you need both. sorry
A tele can be as versatile as you want/need it to be, even with just the standard two single-coil pickup configuration. My #1 tele is wired with a Super 5-way switch, which adds the fatter, more humbucker-like N+B in series and the super honky, "old timey" sounding N+B in series out-of-phase. I also had the bridge pup wound with a coil-tap boost that works off a push/pull on the tone pot, which tacks on a little more than an Ohm and is perfect for solos.
Big-time secret weapons, but it still looks like a classic butterscotch blackguard (aside from a few personal aesthetic tweaks).
