The Torture Never Stops

That may be true, but Paul could sure make "the plank" a lot better!
Seriously, I have no interest in Tele's and see no reason Paul would ever make one. Paul has toyed with single coils for years, trying to make a "better strat." But a slab of wood with 2 single coils, a fixed bridge, and a baseball bat neck... he's already done much better stuff than that. Paul is about advancing the state of the guitar. Starting with the most primitive and basic slab guitar doesn't seem like something he'd be interested in. No offense to all you Tele lovers.
As a Tele lover, I agree with your opinion for the most part. The particular set of features makes me play "the plank" a certain way. That's a huge part of the appeal to me. The Silver Sky is not all that different from a traditional Strat, even though well done and clearly a huge seller. I think there are far more interesting things Paul could do.
