they are!  Nothing sounds or responds to your touch like a Telecaster.  

 

would you believe this is my 1st "proper" Tele ? just a plain ol' Tele. and yes. I agree.

IMHO it is one of the essential tools of the trade.

I had that same one in the same color. It had the best neck of all the Tele's I owned. Hey who is that guy looking at it in the background?
 Congrats.

You could say Fender got right the first time with the Telecaster, very nice Tele you got there.

And the Strat and the P and the J.

Congratulations!!

A limerick, in honor of this occasion;

The thing I like about a Tele
is it fits nice against your belly
The necks are sublime
Order me a sandwich next time
You play a gig at the deli


Okay, I said it was going to be limerick. 
I didn't say it was gonna be a good limerick. 

😬

Very good, I was barely alive when those came out. The lead guitarist in my first band used a Duo Sonic, so we weren't that level yet.

The Tele has alway been my favorite Fender design, I like them with P90's.
