I love the way they feel and sound. As much as I like my LP, my Tele is my #1. I love everything about that guitar (except the pickups that came in it but I am finally getting around to changing those this week). Teles just seem to fit me like a glove, moreso than pretty much any other guitar. And sound wise they are unbelievably versatile. I think Teles and ES guitars (335, 355, etc.) are the most versatile ones out there.
Tele hands down. Incredibly versatile, and tough as nails. I left mine the cold car for a week, played it for 2 hours in a warm house, and put it away again for a few days. Still haven't needed to tune. The bridge pickup tone is like nothing else in the guitar world. I play everything from 50s country, through 60s blues and 70s hard rock, all the way to 80s metal with my Esquire. And such a classic, classy appearance. When I throw my Esquire on, I feel like I'm wearing a tuxedo.
