I do not have a Tele, I have a BJP and 2 Strats. A mim 60th anniversary in blizzard pearl and the black aerodyne that is cij. One is in. 7.25 “ radius the other is 9.5” radius. I find I like the flatter neck but both are plenty playable. The MIM is a chunkier neck and not nearly as fast the CIJ aerodyne which is a very slim and very fast playing neck way more so then my ability to use. TexMex pups on one kind of a SRV sound to me and the other I installed first gen hot noiseless strat pups, absolutely my favorite strat pups. I do not like this new parallel world crap Fender has released but traditional Strats are great. And the options are so varied you could certainly find one with the things you want. But a Nice Jet, corvette, beast or similar with single coils would be cool as well!
