Maybe not the only one...

But I love mine.


Personally, I'd never buy a Strat.

Am I the only one who thinks the shape of a Telecaster is ugly?

yes

I used to think that Tele's were ugly, like they were going to make a Strat that they couldn't be bothered to finish the shaping on the body, but since I bought my G&L ASAT classic tribute (It's got an amazing cherryburst finish) I've changed my mind, they just look burly.

Nah, they look cool. Even brand new ones have a dated vibe to them that I really like.

Telecasters can be sechs
Telecasters can be ugly

The nicest tele i've ever played was a Fender Custom Shop U-Neck Tele, it was really pretty...

The biggest thing tele's have is the versitility (when i first heard that, i didn't believe it). Good telecasters can get a lot of nice tones, just nothing too deep.

I personally don't like them. I mean, the design was ok for me at first, but i really grew to dislike the shape of the head and the plainness of it. This wan't helped by about 4 out of the 6 guitarists in my old tutor group using them.

They sound like they play well enough, but i woudn't buy one.

I think my Tele plays "easier" than any of my Strats or my LP.
#16
ive played many of all three guitars and i find the thin neck of my strat is the easiest to use.

I think Strats look boring. Although i would own one for the sound and neck playability. Same goes for telecasters.


i would get a strat (an american, for a professional one) if everyone didnt have one
#18
I prefer to listen to my guitar than look at it. no they are not ugly!

I my tele, because it is one of the best sounding guitars i have ever played.

You can get some Teles with Bigsby vibratos on, but I don't think you can get other Fender Teles with any sort of whammy/vibrato/tremolo bar. You might wanna check out some of the G&L Tele-shaped guitars (they're called ASATs) that Leo Fender designed later in his career, some of them might have one. www.glguitars.com is the site. I'd look myself, but, y'know, I've got this whole 'laziness' thing...

And yeah, I also find Teles easier to play, but Strats win out in terms of the flexibilty of the sound you can get out of them, plus they have a vibrato bar, and they look sexy

I love them and i sure love mine, there are already soo much strats and les paul's
that those nice tele's really diserve a good place in this world. I'm glad when i see someone gigging whit a tele instead of a strat.
They AREN'T ugly, IMO they're more beautiful than most strats, and have a unique sound...

I used to think teles were "teh fugly" until yesterday, I was at guitar center, thinking about what I should try out on my Fender Hotrod Delux which I will soon purchase, and I see a $1200 tele, so anyways, I plug it in, and it sounds pretty tight. It played very easy, although the fret access is somewhat poor, and it totally screams when you bend really high. The neck pickup is smooth, and the bridge is INSANE TREBLE. But I was very impressed at the raunchy sounding beast. Great for blues or classic rock.

I think of them more as a rhythm guitar, you can play lead on them, but I prefer a Strat for that kind of thing.
