Unlike the Ricks, with their neck-through-body construction and a hollow body that Pete likened to “balsa wood” or “cardboard,” the Telecaster, with its bolt-on neck and solid Alder slab body, could take multiple blows before breaking and be easily reconstructed for the next show.
The Telecaster likely left an impression on Pete, as he would return to the Fender Telecaster around 1980, acquiring a vintage 1952 Fender Telecaster for studio work — which he later called his favourite guitar.
And he used a 1952 Telecaster reissue on stage for the Psychoderelict shows in 1993 as well as solo shows in 1995 to the present.

 A collector's take on the Fender Telecaster - Fender Telecaster Standard - Epinions.com
With an alder body and a maple neck with a separate maple "cap" fretboard, this was a transition telecaster (made with pre-CBS parts but issued when Leo Fender was transferring his company to CBS for 13 million in 1965).
The Fender feel and sound came more from the G&L ASATs and Broadcasters, Leo Fender's other "Telecasters" from the company he was at until his death in 1991.The way my 1990 tele guitar looked was "telecaster", the way it played was like a Jackson, Charvel, or Ibanez.
I remember occasions where experienced players would plug in and say, "This sounds like a Les Paul, not a Fender!" Fender it was and tele it was (legally), but I understood what they meant when they wanted to find the tele "quack" and it wasn't there.
