    Les Paul, the strat and tele are just generic, more or less.

    Too many specific details for each guitar.

    However, speaking generally, I can make a strat sound great through any amp.

    They're three great workhorse guitars. I'd lean toward the Strat because it could be a little more versatile and has a good finger style sound. Or I'd lean toward the LP or Tele because they have much more useful bridge pickups. That's the problem. If I had just one of them, I'd eventually get the others, except maybe I'd get an SG instead of the LP.

    I'd pick the Tele because it sports one of my favorite bridge pickups, that's it. :)

    The Tele for me, and not just because this is the Tele forum. A modern C neck, compensated saddles, and the 4-way already bring it pretty close to my favorite guitar anyway. The antiquities and Cavalier pickups are pickups I'd like to try in that guitar, but haven't yet. So those are some mighty attractive options to me.

    So there that, plus I don't care for Les Pauls or anything in sunburst.

    This is a Tele forum - there can be no other choice~!

    Put the P-90 from the neck of the Les Paul into the neck of the FSR Tele...problem solved!

    I'm a Fender player, and love Tele's, but dislike the Butterscotch blonde finish. I also like multiple pick-up options, so given no other choices I would take the Strat. If that Tele was a "Nashville" style, in any other finish it would have won.

    1st pic - Epi with P90's because P90's sound awesome and can get close Tele or Strat tones.
    2nd pic - Strat because I like Strats.
    3rd Tele - hopefully will at least get me early Zep tones.

    Got my strat n tele jones covered, and I lust for a big neck, p90 lp.

    And I'm too old to be afraid to say Les Paul on a tele forum. ;)

    I'll have the Strat simply because I grew up playing strats and I know what they can do and they will feel instantly familiar.

    The Epi, because P90s are the One Pickup To Rule Them All.

    Epi, because I'm primarily a rock player, and P90s are great for that!

    Tele would be a very close second.

    [IMHO] The FSR Tele would pair best with the 76 SFDR. Combined, their individual sonic qualities gets that magic which (slowly) changed Nashville's concept of how Country Music should sound (especially when matched with a steel guitar).
