Maybe. However, pointy guitars are pretty specific to a style and an era that always had a limited appeal at best. Teles (and Strats, Les Pauls, SGs...) are universal and timeless. Like, I’ve never bonded with a Les Paul, and I owned an ‘81 Custom for four years. Ultimately, my Tele felt and sounded better to me. However, I’d never question why anyone would play a Les Paul. Anyway, we’re not Rock & Roll Hall of Famers.
