    As title - do you guys think I need a Tele? I currently have 2 Strats and 2 Les Pauls, and my main influences are Led Zep, Dire Straits, Clapton, and a bit of Fleetwood Mac & Bon Jovi.

    Somehow, for some reason Teles don't really "inspire" me that much - hence why I haven't got one. I know, I know, I'm not normal.. But would it serve a particular role should I get one, for my style of music?

    no one needs a Tele except the ones who do.
    I need one as much as I need a third arm.

    You don't need a Tele, unless you do ...

    Seriously - why not grab one, play something, then make a decision?

    Of course you need a Tele! Anyone who loves Strats should also have at least one example of the Strat's ruder & cruder older sister. Teles are magic things.

    No, you don’t need one. You need two at least. SS, HS, HH, H, etc. :D

    Yes. If only for self-defense.

    Yes, you do.
    If you don't think so, then you haven't played the right one yet.
    I think most of the people that complain about their bridge pickup in a Strat being thin just haven't identify the fact that they want a Tele.
    I needed one so bad I actually bought a Squier :thumbd: and have actually played live, in a band, in front of people with it! :eek:

    I believe it was the Dalai Lama who said, "We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without a Tele." Or something like that.

    A Tele is all you need.


    Cheers.
