I like my 73 paid 350.00 in quarters in 1979
My first guitar was a 74 Tele. Wish I still had it . Break ins suck
My answer is "whatever tele I'm currently with."
Not picky, just cheap.
My MIM 72 Thinline RI. Cause I'll never get rid of it .

I'd have to have one of those roasted ash/roasted maple versions. Naked roasted maple is the only maple fingerboard i can stand. The regular maple is to plasticy for me, and when the finish wears, too grippy. All rosewood fingerboards for me since 1974 until i built a tele with a roasted maple neck for my wife. Now that neck i like!
My thing is 72 Thinlines.
I had a regular tele and the 72 AVRI and I liked the 72 a lot more and ended up selling the regular one to diversify (got a 335). Focusing on my chosen path, I first upgraded the fender reissue pickups to Lollar Regals with 500K pots, and then swapped the whole thing for the FSR version of the same guitar with nitro, a flatter radius and bigger frets, transferring my Lollars over. The tuners are locking Kluson Revolutions and the saddles are Highwood, and of course there are strap locks. Now I’ve got it just the way I want it. Thanks for the opportunity to geek out.
Already have it
Seriously gassing for an American original at the moment, but having not played one and choosing from what I have, it would be a Baja Tele, either one is good for me, I have both 50's & 60's and seriously love them both
