To me it would be difficult to think of a guitar less sexy than a Telecaster.

Teles are just basic, wood, strings, fingers. They are honest, and a worn Tele to me feels like it has stories to tell.
And that I think is the problem I have with Telecasters. I comes with all that "honest", "workmanlike", "authentic" baggage. And I just don't want that from either my music or my musical instruments. I want fantastical and flamboyant. That's partly why I ditched guitars and basses for most of 80s and played synths because that was where all the glamour was.
These days I'm back with stringed instruments - Gus G3 bass and G1 Guitar, Warwick StarBass, Sei Flamboyant, Fretking Esprit, Hallmark Wingbat. They are my kinds of instruments.
