Both are pretty different guitars, sound wise

Fender has a Telecaster Pawn Shop model, looks more like a strat with a tele neck, not sure about the sound though

Do you guys know of a guitar that has a telecaster body, but that is wired and sounds exactly like a strat?

Does such thing even exist?


...so a strat with worse upper fret access?

No don't think it exists, get a strat.

If you want a Tele that kinda has strat-like options go with a Nashville.
