Welcome, it's a great forum full of good advice.
Have you considered a Squier Classic Vibe? Don't be put off of the brand or price, they are fantastic guitars. I have one thanks to advice from this forum and my other guitars are going up for sale. I've tried lots of guitar's but nothing has sounded, or played, as nice as my Classic Vibe. Every time I play it I smile, and even when it's in it's stand I still pass it adoring glances!
I would never have considered Squier before joining this forum and fully expected to pay £700/£800 (that was my top end budget) for the perfect tele. In the end I think it cost £250 all in and I couldn't be happier with it.
