Go for Suhr T mate, over the Am. Dlx Tele, seriously. Much better quality and tone, IMHO. Am. Dlx. Tele is still mass production guitar (with all the conseq. regarding wood selection, pickups, setup). Plus Fender out-of-the-box setup is usually quite crappy, if it's not a CS. Honestly, Fender only starts rivalling at Custom Shop level, but then, again it's more a mojo thing. Objectively, Suhr is much more practical and comfortable to play, to gig, stays better in tune and so on.
