it is my opinion that you should buy both a strat AND a tele.
end of thread.
Oh go ahead & buy the new Strat, you deserve it! It’s fun, actually so much fun, you might not be able to stop buying new Strats or used. It turns into GAS - Guitar Acquisition Syndrome. Especially if it’s some kind of birthday or other special occasion, or tax return or you just feel like spending a couple grand on that special guitar!
Shop carefully as you've been spoiled with your current #1. Tough call as to what type, because you always wonder what am I missing. Here's hoping you find an equally amazing axe for a backup or, another #1
You go get the road worn tele which is based on a 50s the quality is top notch as you yourself have experience with your road worn strat.
How could you even ask a question like that on a Strat forum? You already knew the answer, HELL YES! ENJOY!!!
Since you only need a backup guitar for your Strat you need a second Strat as that backup. As a voice of restraint, it only needs to be a Strat-like-object. Check out whatever is the equivalent at Thomann Harley Benton line. Get it and get a local guitar tech to do a fret level/crown/polish and deep setup. Go for a fun looking paint job version.
Then take your time shopping for a new fun guitar of some other variety. A Tele is great. An Esquire or Les Paul Junior is really freeing and teachable platform, I didn't know how to use the volume or tone pot nor picking location effects until I got my LP Jr. Some of the PRS SE models are good and fun.
I believe the question is "why not, buy another..?"
I would hold on to your money until you find a guitar in person that you connect with. Getting a guitar just because is never as satisfying as finding one that you just have to take home.
