I had a Baja, now I have a super deluxe.

I hope you keep your job, because you have correctly identified that you do need a tele in your life. I love 'em. they're such solid performers. you can bash them, twang them, strum them, pick them. They do it all, in a simple easy to get on with package...

Less controls = better in my book....

Well good luck with the interview (which you may well be having as I write). And as others have said, your logic is faultless!
Big Tele fan here; used to be a Epiphone / Gibson player when I was in a band and always thought it ideal given what we were playing. But once I got a Tele (and now have 2), I never looked back; much more versatile I thought and better sounding anyway.
A mate also has a Squire Tele (can't remember what model) and I agree with the comments above - it's a wonderful guitar and possibly hugely underrated due to its price.
Let us know how you get / got on!

Good luck with the interview!

I'm starting to think that I have a Tele shaped hole in my life too - gotta complete the holy trinity if nothing else. :beamup:

I had a Squier Tele which I sold last year. I have been asking myself "WTF was I thinking" ever since!

I've got a work interview on Friday morning to keep my job in a restructuring/redundancy situation. So I've decided that, if I keep my job, I'll get a Tele to celebrate. And if I don't, I'll get one as a consolation.

The logic seems pretty solid to me. ;)

How did the work interview go??? I'm sure I'm not the only person who hopes it went in your favour, sir!

Also, got the Tele yet? ;)

Well...I didn't get the job. But I did order a very nice Tele. (Secondhand 2016 Butterscotch Elite.)

So, not all bad. ;)

ooo soory about the job, but your logic is working as planned! Gorgeous tele!

I have four teles, one built by me so it only looks like a tele, a AVRI '62 in sea foam and two custom shops, one with hand wound pickups and that guitar will be cremated with me.

Likewise sorry to hear about the job, but that is a nice bit of compensation. :)

I have five teles: four yamahas (including two converted to Esquires, one set up for slide), one real deal US. I love Teles.

Nice Tele!! I absolutely LOVE butterscotch blonde Teles. The truss rod adjustment wheel is a welcome addition on the elite series instruments too I feel.

+ the case is lovely!
