Telecaster - I've been finding a lot of good utility from a Tele in worship. Great guitars for all around, so it's no surprise that it fits well in worship. I agree whole heartedly!
Compressor - I've had a CS3 and a Signa Comp. Don't waste your money on the Signa - I found it quite noisy and shrieky. By the time you notice any compression, it's very noisy. Depending on what kind of compression you want, you can choose accordingly. If you're looking for Ross type compression but have a limited budget, I would steer you toward a new MXR Dyna Comp. I played one the other day and wondered why I have a Keeley. See this site when you decide to go shopping:
I wish there was a site like this for every kind of pedal. Simply wonderful.
Fender Blues Junior - I had one for a while but sold it. I could never get that wonderful, rich blackface clean tone. But they are great amps. The latest rev. III is somewhat brighter and perhaps the best one so far.
We seem to be doing the resurrection shuffle with old threads, don't we?
I think the Tele is a good guitar for bass players because it's simple, but for worship a strat works best *for me* because it can go from snappy and twangy, through poppy jangle to warm, fat and jazzy. You can strum it like an acoustic or shred like EVH. It's just a very versatile instrument, and doesn't have to be thin and shrill the way some imagine them to be.
If I were buying a new stand-alone compressor I'd look at the Diamond unit. Owned an MXR Dyna comp and was very disappointed - the sweet spot was too narrow between no compression and over-squished mud, and it lacked openness.
