Should I trade my LP for a Tele

I had a 78 LP Custom. Played and sounded absolutely great. Someone had done some incredibly nice fretwork on it. But it weighed a good 11 lbs.
Yep. My Les Paul Artisan (basically a 3 pickup Les Paul Custom with "banjo" inlays) played and sounded like a dream. That neck was incredible, and I still haven't played a neck like that to this day. But it was 12 pounds.

And I'd have to also vote that you keep the Les Paul... if you play it... and save for a Tele.

The 70s were not good years for Fender.
Heavy, dull sounding, misaligned neck with dodgy 3 bolt.
Do it if you hate your LP.

As my very first post on this forum I will concur with those who say
keep the LP and save for an inexpensive Tele or better yet a
G&L asat tribute. Best inexpensive Telecaster style guitar on the market.

keep the LP and get a low cost, maybe used, MIM Tele, there are good ones for not much $.

I got an 80s era MIJ Tele about 15 years for something like $400. It's a great guitar. The body was a little nicked, but so what? It's a battle axe. Truly. I changed the pickups (but didn't have to) and I absolutely love it. Plays great, sounds great.

There are lots of high quality Teles out there for short money.
