This is why I prefer Teles!
I love my Telecasters.
If the house is on fire, I’m grabbing that pinstriped Tele in my avatar photo.
The feel, weight, balance, sound, sustain, tuning stability...all perfect.
But my Stratocaster can do some pretty amazing things I don’t want to give up.
Plus...look at her...

that is funny - I can't recall the last time a strat slid on my lap as I played sitting down but I will try and look for it now
So, you prefer teles because some random guy on youtube doesn't know how to handle a strat? Different ergonomics, different handling. Never noticed the strat sliding problem myself.
Nice strat. Nice tele for that matter. If my house was on fire, I'd break a window with my tele and start throwing guitars out of it.
Yes! I would like to to remove the tummy cut in my strat by filling it with a block of wood!

Leo got it right the second time, too.
I'd say he got it right most times, even if he was ahead of the curve sometimes, or right in ways he didn't even know about.
I had to think about this because I love my Teles and Strats. If I had to pick two guitars to save in a fire it would be one of my Teles and one of my Strats. But thinking about this differently, if the Strat had never been invented by Leo, I would be happily playing four Teles instead of two Teles and two Strats and not feeling anything "missing". On the other hand, if the Tele had never been invented and the Strat had been, I'd probably have an LP Jr or Melody Maker or something and still be searching for a guitar that is as versatile (for me) as a Tele.
Tele ultimately wins - he got it right the first time.
I have other non-Strat/non-Tele guitars but they rarely get played.
He got it right with the Precision Bass also.
A Tele just feels more solid. What else can I say? Not that a strat doesn’t have it’s good points.
It still blows my mind that Leo wasn't even a player but came up with so many designed early on that endured the test of time.
The man was right several times.
Leo was right the first time and REALLY right the second. They are both great.
The only issue I have with Strats is the placement of the volume knob by the bridge. I don't have an especially wide or emphatic strumming motion, but I regularly hit that knob. I get along much better playing Strats with one volume/one tone.
I do prefer Teles over Strats, but I believe that the Stratocaster is one of the most beautifully designed objects ever. Not just in guitars, but everything. It came out in 1954 and does not look dated at all.
I was going to say this, but you did. Well played.
One of the dumbest vids I've seen in a long time.
1000% agree here.
silly video but I prefer the tele to any other electric guitar. The range of sounds, the ergonomics, the durability and simplicity are just right for me.
Things i might change would be an angled neck heel, electrosocket, and a notch for adjusting at the heel. I tend to like a P90 in the neck position, but the straight up tele neck pickup is great. Stock tele to me is the best and most versatile electric guitar by a long shot.
But some people like Les Pauls, which is simply inexplicable to me
Telecaster is the engineer's guitar. The strat is designed to maximize mass production.
ya covered, they each excel at what they were intended to
