    Yes, changing the bridge pickup on a ttadyillitional Tele is a pain!

    I have two and love them both but I don't need both of them. I hate that I can't decide which to part with.

    I like the adjustable screws for the neck pickup on a Telecaster. Focusing on those tiny screws is just OCD in my opinion. You can barely see them.

    I reread my earlier reply and it sounds a little like a real complaint. It was just a gripe at about the same level as: I like wine but hate dealing with corks (why can’t they all have caps?)

    I am always going to have a Tele of some sort.

    Also, it is a good workout just picking it up.

    I hate when I'm playing and it's a little off, my Tele will immediately let me know how bad I'm doing. There's nowhere to hide with a Tele..

    No middle pick up and no forearm contour. What do I hate about strats? No fixed bridge.

    There's a telecaster one (I have it too). Here's the guy's etsy page:

    The bridge is iconic but not the easiest or most comfortable to mute with.
