I can't stop laughing. I was going to reply "as many as it takes" but yours is better.
Any post that asks a similar question requires this advice:
Yup although I love playing mine so much I rarely play any other of my electrics.
I have only one Tele and that's good enough for me.
I've owned a lot of modern Telecasters. The 64 RI does it all.
I have three, but due to space issues where I live I only have one at hand at any one time while the others are in storage.
Currently I’m using the lesser of the three but even within its sonic and responsive parameters I’m still lost exercising it’s possibilities.
Or put another way, give me limits and I will explore the boundaries which can occupy me for a lifetime.
While I’m exercising this creativity, the other teles are silent and become frozen artifacts.
Short answer: One*
* Does not apply to amps and acoustic guitars!
If you're looking to go HH/HS, perhaps consider one of those a replacement for a LP or something of the like. I had the HH 72 RI Thinline and had to part with it for a single coil Tele cause the HH had too much crossover w an LP that I have a sentimental attachment to. Though Fender buckers are uniquely voiced, at the end of the day all buckers fill the same role to me. IMO you already have that lovely Tele, why not get another Fender offering like Strat or JM for wider range of single coil sweetness? Or... if you really are a Tele devotee (understandable), I was a huge fan of that thinline body for the looks, resonance, and light weight, highly recommend thinlines.
Just one more.....
You need too many.
IMO, once you have too many, then you can stop tormenting yourself over any inclination to buy more. You already have a Tele nicer than the one you're playing in the store. So, just enjoy playing that store guitar, tell your friends all about it, but don't even have the slightest inclination to buy it.
Yoh can justify it by needing Maple neck
And 1 is right for me...
A man is wise if he buys just one Tele, but the problem is that he probably goes thru several; before he gets there
I only own a Baja, but if I continue to indulge myself in this thread, it will only induce gas.
I already have 2 Strats, 2 LP's, 2 acoustics (Martin & Alvarez), and 2 hollowbodies.
I question my need for a Ash bodied Tele Elite with noiseless N4 pickups and the aesthetics of a Custom model with its binding. Do I need to add a ebony board?
One less than I have .
My # 1 (w. neck humbucker, pic below) and my #2 (an AVRI 52 -classic PU configuration)
Got any pics? I'd love to see your collection, as it has all my favorite Teles in it. A 70's Custom is about the only vintage guitar I'd ever really think about buying, now.

I don't actually need any. I need some sort of Fender and given the choice, I've always preferred strats more and if forced to choose, I'd have a strat. And for a long time I didn't have any teles because whenever I had a strat and a tele next to each other on the wall, I always played the strat. But a couple months ago I played and fell head over heels for a 50s Roadworn tele and now I have that and an Epi ES339 with P90s all up on my wall and I play all of them, although the strat is still clearly and overwhelmingly my #1. But that Roadworn sounds so good and feels and plays soooooo sublimely well that I'm really happy to have both for the first time. I know the strat's a long term keeper - I'm pretty sure the tele and Epi are also.
I have zero Teles and need zero Teles.
And you're a member of the TDPRI... makes sense to me...
I came for the amp talk. Good amp stuff here, despite the inherent love for teles.
