Another tele fan here...

I started out on a strat, but eventually got a tele because it of its simplicity and tuning stability. My Am. Std. is ash body with maple neck in natural finish and it is gorgeous. It is definitely my #1 electric. One caveat: the stock single coils can get noisy depending electrical interference. My church main sanctuary has very bad wiring and makes the pickups hum like crazy. As a result, I can't play the tele in church.

As for the tele not being a "jazz" guitar, I beg to differ. As they say, "the tone is in the fingers". Check out Danny Gatton's double CD, Hot Rod Guitar and you'll hear a ton of jazz instrumentals played on a tele. Yes, an archtop is a better tool for the job, but a tele can fake it pretty good...

GO WITH THE STRAT, I know a guy that has been playing guitar fo 37 years and he played lead guitar for this really cool band back in the 80s and in my opinion he is better than hendrix and his favorite guitar is a strat, and his son has 2 strats and he plays in jazz band with one of them, so i am going to tell you GO WITH THE STRAT. peace and god bless
