I own multiples of all three plus other models, but, hands down ...... a Tele is my #1 and would be the last guitar I would ever give up. It's the only mandatory model in my stable. The only bummer here is I play better and faster on a 24 3/4" scale guitar. I have short fingers and I'm 65 so they don't stretch like they used to. Still ........ I'd settle for playing a little slower with a little less accuracy to always have my Tele at hand.
