I’ve got a 2004 Am Std Strat and a 2018 Am Pro Tele. I’d be hard pushed to say which is the better player or my #1. But, and here’s a thing. I’ll play any of the band’s numbers on the Tele, country, pop, blues etc. Yet playing country on the Strat just doesn’t work for me. It’s not just a question of the tone, it just feels weird and wrong to hit a country number with a Strat.
