Funny you should ask. Ive always thought blonde with maple neck was the iconic Tele. I even built a parts-Esquire using a see thru blonde body and maple neck.
My Am Std Tele was originally black with rosewood (tuxedo tele) and i intended to rebody it blonde but ended up sunburst. I consider it pretty lackluster and I've finally decided to have it painted ice blue metallic. It's going to the painter this morning.

Blonde body, not too glossy. Maple neck. Single-ply white pickguard. No binding, no gold.

When it comes to Teles, I'm anti-bling.

That's the thing about Teles for me; bling or beaten, I love 'em all. Strats are my favorite Fender but given the resources I would likely own more Teles. Nocaster, Esquire, Thinline, Deluxe, P90s, Harrison rosewood,....lordy!

Bling and blang

When I hear the word "Telecaster," my mind's eye sees "butterscotch."

But my Beatlemaniac brother once had the George Harrison rooftop Telecaster. It was rather nice.
