I'm looking at a strat or a tele to get some single coil sounds to balance out my humbucker guitar. I was wondering who likes what better?
#2
for the ultimate single coil sound, get a Fender Esquire.

depends on th music your playing, if you looking for twangy country go for the tele if you play blues or rock, go with the strat. I prefer the strat personally because you can get a great crisp sound, or a warm blues sound.

it really depends on whether you need a tele or a strat sound more...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Strat or Tele for a mixture of indie pop/rock and grungy alt/rock with lots of soloing. They both have better cleans than my guitar.

Strat probably. It feels better against your body if that counts for anything, and the necks are a little different.

You can get more sounds out a strat than a tele though...

Depends on what you like,

There you go, best of both worlds.

Anyways, I prefer Strats, but yeah.

I think strats are more versatile.

You still can get a great 'twangy' clean sound using only the bridge pickup, and a great warm sound using the neck pickup... The neck is also slimmer and more comfortable (in my opinion).

But both guitars sound great, no doubt about it... They're just different.

It's a Strat pickguard and electronics shoved into a Tele body. It looks really freaky, don't ya think?
