Yeah, I'm in a big debate with myself over whether my next guitar is a strat or a tele.
The one I pictured isn't really either. It's body is shaped like a tele, but contoured like a strat. It's pickups are closer to that of a strat, minus the bridge pickup, in the sense of a traditional strat. It's a hard-tail like a tele, but no 3-barrel saddles. I'd honestly say it's more strat than tele, but still a far cry from a traditional/vintage strat or tele.
I like writing songs, and I strongly feel that the Telecaster is the songwriter's electric. However, I've been trying to get a lot better at soloing blues, and I feel like strats inspire the blues guitar sound more than any other guitar, especially on position 4.
