    as the title says, looking for a company that makes a Tele guitar with a strat style trem, preferrably midrange quality, don't quite have the funds for a higher end guitar.

    I think Rondo does.

    Also, the Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe has a strat trem.

    A few fender Teles have had strat trems over the years.

    You can have Bob Logan build you a fantastic Tele with a tremolo for less than $750. Here's my mahogany body Logan (I supplied the Klein neck pickup and Thorn staple-top P90). He uses Wilkinson vintage style tremolo bridges, but can probably use something else if you supply it. Logan's guitars are highly regarded here and especially on TDPRI. Price is hard to beat for the quality.

    Logan seems like a logical choice.

    Personally, I also like the Carvin T-60, which is a 25" scale neck-through shred sled disguised as a Tele

    If you want one with a strat pickup config, I might sell this one (I've taken some **** about the flowers on the pickguard, so I'll understand if it doesn't float your boat).

    A trem is a factory option on G&L ASATs.

    The pictured guitar is an ASAT Special with the large MFDs, it's also an option on the ASAT Classic with regular size MFD pickups.

    I love TL60s. Here's one that I used to have but sold it a few years ago.
    I regret selling it.

    Thanks guys, I'll certainly look into the Logan and Reverend, i knew fender had the Deluxe, but i can't stand the pickguard on them, would prefer more of a Custom look than Deluxe. thanks again for all the help!

    I was going to say Tom Anderson too since the Reverend is based off of Pete's older Anderson "Tele" with trem.
