My Batman Telecaster made by Dave Petillo and the Fender Custom Shop with Custom Pickups designed by Kevin Buell (Springsteen's longtime Guitar Tech) and Dave Petillo. Wound by MJ at Seymour Duncan and used on the record "Letter To You" and other things . V shape neck with Petillo Triangle Precision Frets, guitar is completely waterproofed etc.
Three very different guitars. All 100% stock. The Flowers Tele is the best sounding/worst playing. The Nashville is a great player, but the lack of N+B makes it - not really a Tele in some ways. So my favorite Tele is the So-Cal. With the pickups in single coil mode it sounds like a Tele w/ P90s (no hum) and it plays like a dream. It gets 100% of the recording duties. The Nashville is my Sofa guitar and the Flowers Tele sits among the tube amps where the upstairs Whiskey collection is... They each have a place.
From when she was new back in 2017 - a Fender Classic 60'S Tele in CAR. It was a surprise present from my wife for my 40th and my first Tele - love at first sight!
I really got the tele bug soon after and bought a thinline deluxe, Performer LTD edition, Jimmy Page Dragon MIM... all of them have since moved on apart from the 60's Classic. It's wonderful to play, and sounds fantastic, and even more special due to the sentimental value!
This is a hard question. I have two that I especially love. One has an early 50s type sound, fat but twangy. The other has a slightly hotter bridge pickup and a P90 in the neck for a more midrange sound.
It’s between these two: 2019 American Ultra Tele and 1996 G&L ASAT Classic.
Right now the ASAT is in the lead. Someone in this forum recently posted that the ASAT Classic is a Tele that “goes to 11” and I agree. It’s got a great neck with a stainless steel refret and is a beast. The Ultra Tele is slick and polished and polite by comparison, but also crazy versatile. I play whichever suits the song and my mood, but lately it’s been the ASAT.
