If you can afford it, try to get the Highway 1 Std. or a Baja Tele. They are the best deals for Teles IMHO
'11 Gibson LP Jr.
'07 Gretsch 5120
'69 Tele

'03 Blueridge Dreadnought

Well if you're diggin' the humbucker sound, the deluxe is more of an option, however, with singles Highway 1, Baja, or a used US made tele, they'd be the best.

Though, if prices are still as they were last year, with an extra £50 or so you'll be able to buy a new US made tele. But if it's an 08 one I'd not touch it, has a terrible bridge which is more similar to a strat bridge than a tele bridge.

Totally agree. Highway One (the '06 upgraded series) are great for modern music. And indeed I owned the Baja Tele for a while and it was a superb instrument, very versatile with its dual circuits and 4 position blade which allowed you to select among 6 different tones.

Still, go and test different guitars until you find the one that fits your needs.
Looking at your current gear, I'd get a Mexican and use the left over money towards a new amp.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
