    Hi Nixer and welcome to the Forum. Like a lot of people on here I also have a Tele and a Gretsch. As Sgt Rock and Bobkat said, it's probably best to leave the Tele as it is and enjoy it for the great and characterful guitar that it is. Whilst you do that save up and get yourself a Gretsch because the only guitar like a Gretsch IS a Gretsch. Believe me I tried to use others to do the same job and play the music you love too. IMHO no matter how good any other make of guitar is, there is no substitute for a real Gretsch period.

    I think I actually have broken up a barfight with my Tele - or started / made a contribution to one anyway. Wouldn't risk my Gretsch with that though - doesn't have enough heft :D

    For serious bandstand defense nothing beats a Les Paul. :)

    I'd be willing to bet some pre-FMIC Jets could be downright lethal...

    I think that they require a weapons permits. The heaviest guitar I ever played was a pre-FMIC Pro Jet but even that pales in comparison to this thing:

    Smaller than a Strat and probably weighs twice as much. This is the bass that sent me to the doctor. No more strapped playing of this one . . . EVER!!!!!​
