Help me understand the difference between the strat and tele sound. I used to have a strat, and now I have a tele, but I have never owned both at the same time, so it's hard for me to compare. The issue: I got rid of my strat as the whammy bar bridge drove me crazy. I like to bend strings while others ring, and I could not stand how the ringing strings would go out of tune as the other note was bent. Even with a wood block glued in it still drove me nuts. Enter the tele. Overall, I love the guitar, and of course the are no issues as described above. However, I sometimes feel that I just can't get the sound I'm looking for. I never had this issue with the strat. It's very hard for me to describe because I don't have both guitars to compare directly, but for example, I just can't get a good sound when I play something like Voodoo Child. I guess what I need to know is if there is a way to get my tele to sound a little more like a strat. Thanks.
