    Going into 2021 the Tele I'm playing the most is a Broadcaster type build that I picked up a couple of months ago. It has a set of Klein Broadcaster pickups. It plays great and it's got that blend wiring which I am really enjoying. The neck radius is 10" which seems kind of uncommon, but like I said it plays great. Here's a pic of it next to my Danocaster

    My fourth Bullet Squier tele arrived today.

    When I get to it, it’s going to become a DIY Esquire. In the meantime, it’s totally fine as is. It was $139 on MF.

    (I don’t have a problem. I can quit anytime I want.)

    These three: Brand spanking new partscaster, FGN (Fujigen's house brand) now with Phat Cats, and my old faithful partscaster. I might be done with tele purchases for the foreseeable future, certainly for 2021.

    I finished off 2020 with a T-52 Nash. It is a great guitar to start 2021.

    Reading through the thread, I feel like I should have more. Some folks have more Telecasters than I have guitars. My avatar Telecaster is my only one. It started out as a Nashville many years ago. It now sports N4 Noiseless pickups with an S1 switch. It covers all my Telecaster needs and sits comfortably with my two Strats, SG, Annie, and S&P dred. More time practicing and less time shopping works for me.

    Had the same ones for years. A couple of Squier CV Teles started it off 11-12 years ago; bought a couple more, assembled a few partscasters, did a couple mods on the older ones. The only instruments that I have acquired this year were not Telecasters.
    And BTW, having multiple Teles is more like having an assortment of hammers rather than anvils. Just my opinion.

    My first tele build! Have always played Strats, PRS, Ibby's etc. Great way to start 2021. Neck will be here in about 30 days. A chunky soft v flame and Cavalier pups to go with this: tempImage9PdNtO.png

    Very cool pic, guitars, amp, music room/man cave, and thread idea.:cool:

    I need to take a new pic of my full herd (all the guitars in my collection as of now), but since your thread is about Teles/T-styles, my existing pics will work. The second pic below is a better close-up, even though it's not just of the teles but of all of my Logan Custom guitars, teles included. As for doing this again next year, I don't expect a change in the number of teles. I do have some ideas for mods of those five teles, though, so that may be different...
