    I have an American 2015 HH and would love to get a traditional American Tele.

    I've been building guitars for the past couple of years. Each guitar I've made has a different combination of pickups, controls, hardware, neck dimensions, etc. so each has a unique tone and character of it's own. I've got three Teles right now, each sounds very different from the other. One is set up vintage, one has hot pickups, and the other is a Cabronita. Right now I'm building a dual-P90 Strat, 'cause I don't have a dual P90 guitar at the moment.

    There are major differences between the Standard Telecaster, Thinline telecaster, '72 Telecaster Thinline, and Tele Custom (Classic, Classic semihollow, Humbucking Semi Hollow, Solid w/ humbuckers) that can justify owning one of each, if you have the resources and you can make use of the different types of tones you get out of them.

    We can go further afield and include the Cabronita Telecasters with Fideletron pickups, or the Nashville telecasters with the three way pickup arrangement similar to a strat (but different).

    You can even make arguments for one with p90 pickups (I like them... but they are not that unique sounding compared to other p90 loaded solid bodies), or noiseless pickups (I'm dropping an old set of Lace sensors into a Nashville-style tele sometime this week), or the newer Fishman Fluence Pickups (check out the Reverend Greg Koch Signature) for what might be one of the coolest T-type configs yet.

    Oh, its really simple...
    If you just dig the Tele the most (and why not?)....ya' gotta have your #1, and THEN others for your slide tunings.
