What is the best Telecaster for COUNTRY music ?

Among these below Telecaster with classic configuration (ash or swamp ash body, maple neck, maple fingerboard, three saddles), which is the more suitable for (classic and modern) COUNTRY music, which has the most of twang for country tones (clean and slightly crunch) ?

-Lite Ash
-Baja classic player
-Highway Texas
-Vintage' 52
-Hot Rod' 52
-others references that I have forgotten .

Thank you (and sorry for my english).

I'm not sure that I wouldn't opt for a Nashville Telecaster with a B-Bender, just for sheer flexibility...although that doesn't have the classic Tele configuration. Still, it's pretty versatile, right out of the box.

Any telecaster is good for country. Acrually any guitar is good for country the guitar doesnt play the music the player does.

I have never played one, but if I were to use a telecaster for country I think this would be the one to get
