    I have these. But it really doesn't matter what kind of tele one I play, I'm a mediocre guitarist on any of them. ;-)

    I've got a Butterscotch Classic Vibe Tele with an Original Vintage Bridge pickup, along with CTS pots, an orange drop cap, and a 4 way switch that's made all of my other guitars unnatural to play in comparison. I also made a new pickguard out of an LP of Skynrd's One More For The Road for it. It plays like it's an extension of my voice. After getting it all dialed in, I've finally lost the desire to look at other guitars.. For now at least

    A Fender modern player Plus telecaster with Seymour Duncan p-rail in bridge, quarter pound pickups (with tap) in middle and neck.

    Second place goes to a Squier Vintage Modified 72 thinline.

    I have a few other T-types, but those are the two I usually play.

    While mine is not a Fender, next to the '68 I had years ago and sold , my Allan Manship B-bender Tele copy is the best playing that I've had, and I've had quite a few over the years, even one Fender Custom Shop model thinline that was gorgeous, but to me played like crap.

    Red MIM Traditional, I think it’s called, from about 1999 and a 2018 Butterscotch blonde AmPro. Had a couple of others but these are the keepers from now on.

    2008 CV white blonde w/tort guard and an aluminum jack plate and a 2013 AMSTD in Jade Pearl w/a Mexican Triple Tele neck.

    The CV is currently my longest held guitar. The jack cup is all that needed replaced but the tort guard is sweet.

    For a lower tier guitar I will say that it's value as a musical instrument is well above it's price point .

    The band workhorses are a black partscaster with noiseless pickups and a blonde HWY-1 with a Wilkinson bridge.

    In my avatar is a white blonde CV Squier that lives where we practice. The burst Deluxe below is a Reissue of the exact guitar that I played in high school jazz band 78-82. I wish I still had it. The gold one is the Chris Shiflett signature guitar and the orange sparkle one was the result of a midlife crisis. It’s my red sports car. I got the real 72 Deluxe burst used in 77 when I was 15. It was $235 used. I love Telecasters.

    I’ll have to take a picture of my modded Telebration La Cabronita.

    Most of the time it is either this MIM 50's Baja that I gig with;

    upload_2019-6-24_15-32-48.jpeg

    Or the refinished (Surf ? Seafoam?)MIM Classic 60's body, fitted with a maple neck and Bare Knuckle Brown Sugar pickups sitting in the back row, but I keep a couple of others on stands in my music room, swapping them randomly every couple of weeks, so any may be played.
