that top-hat switch tip is pretty offensive on a blackguard.
I found the round tip to be useless in addition to being horrible to the touch. The top hat is the only part of that guitar that I can stand... and it's rapidly wearing out its welcome. :puh

Not that it matters, but I try to be a stickler for the truth. I just realized I DO have an actual Fender branded Tele - an Indonesian Lite Ash. Plays well above its price class. I had recently sold a Squier VM Tele and was thinking I was now out of actual Fenders.

I think the Tele platform is awesome. I also like the standard Tele tone but I've always been more into a different variation of Tele.
The Tele is probably my favorite body style, not my favorite neck.
I used to have an American Standard Tele from 2003 and I put Lollar pickups in it. I liked it but in the end and after a lot of comparison testing I realized the newer Teles being made were better sounding IMO. So I sold that Tele. And since I had it for awhile I was in the mood to try something different and was really interested in Strat's at the time so I went with it.
I've also had a Hamer Studio Custom which I had for a little less 10 years which I really liked but for the last few years I've really wanted to get back to some kind of Tele variation as I really like them for vintage rock and classic rock tones.
So I am recently back in the Tele family. Last week I bought a Fender Telebration 60th Year Anniversary Cabronita Telecaster w/ T.V. Jones pickups in it. Amazing guitar! It has a unique but full bodied tone with attitude and yet still warmth. It's great to be back in the Tele family.

I've been a tele player since I was 15,My Dad bought me my first guitar,a Lafayette and when I was getting better at playing and wanted a better guitar the music store had a few Fenders to chose from and I wanted the Jaguar but the only thing he could afford was a tele and this was 1968,looking back now I realize that was a good thing.

I just had to see if this thread was serious. Best way to find the love is to show some disdain toward the Tele and see what happens.
