Really love Les Pauls, but have been really tempted by the "Troublemaker" Telecaster -- the Parallel Universe model that is sort of a mash-up of a LP knob/switch set-up with a pair of Humbuckers - but on a Tele body/Strat head).

Has anyone played one? Can you compare the tone to the "Tele Deluxe" (which also has a HH setup)? I've seen a lot of tone demo videos on YouTube, but frankly they are all over the map.

Would love some input from anyone who owns or has played these to compare tones as well as feel. What you like about the HH Tele vs an LP set-up? And vice versa?
