There's not too many tones I cannot get with some judicious use of outboard sound processing; admittedly, it won't do humbucker crunch particularly well but, gee whiz... you can get pretty bloody close!
I have a neckthru H/H, a H/S/H and a H/S/S on the rack beside me with the bass and the ST, and none of the others is a slouch by any means, but that Telecaster sound lends itself to being bent and twisted in SO many ways that it has become the "go-to' guitar!!
I'm simply staggered....

Blues, Country, Rock and, for crying out loud, even Jazz ...nothing seems to be beyond the range of the Tele configuration.
I came to appreciate it's talents very late, sadly, too late to have realized it during my playing years.
It's such a solid design that even when it doesn't rigidly follow Leo's original plan it's still pretty damn satisfying.
