Alright, so I have a MIM strat and a dual-humbucker guitar. Both sound and feel good, so I figure I can have some fun and pick a guitar without worrying about more range. As such at first I was considering a tele. Then I looked at a HW1 strat. And once more I want one of those. >< In short, do I get a MIM tele, or sell the strat and upgrade to a US-made strat?

tele, strat wouldn't be that much of an upgrade if you're going to highway one

i would say highway one...but i hate the headstocks soooo much.....and i don't like tele's....honestly the MIA Highway one doesn't have many advantages in my opinion over either of those..how about upgrade your mim strat?

Get a HWY1 tele! Or the Baja Tele, that thing has some AWESOME sounds. Look it up on youtube, the phase options are sick.

On the headstocks; I like the 70's styling.

On the tele's; I wouldn't consider one if I didn't like em'.

As for upgrading my strat, I'm completely fine with it how it is. Sounds good, feels good, plays good, looks good, my only complaint is it doesn't have 24 frets, but I'm not screwing up the feel by putting a different radius neck on.

phasing on a tele? I do believe I'm sold.
