    Wait, 72 Tele is just a moded Tele isnt it? So they must feel the same. Am I right?

    I just checked the web and it says that they both have the same specs except fingerboard radius. Normal MIM Tele is 241mm 72 Tele is 305mm.

    Do I have to skip 72 Tele because of this? It doesnt sound logical...

    Possibly, but that's not what I meant. I meant that if you're in doubt, you must feel the guitar to see if you connect. If you can't feel it before you buy it, then skip it. I guess someone that's played loads of guitars of a certain sort, and with certain specs, basically knows what he'll get and can therefor order it online. Just because a woman is attractive, don't mean she's for you, you have to date her first to find out...

    This

    Leave the internet for a couple afternoons and go annoy some shop owners trying out guitars. What ever you like, buy it.

    I think perhaps your question remains unanswered because no one but you can answer it. If you like them, get them, if you don't, don't...

    Remember that this advice is worth what you paid for it.

    My pro-Telecaster overgeneralizations:

    • Two distinct pickup sounds with the third being a combination of the two
    • No adjusting of a tremolo, no fiddling with different pickup combinations, no playing with too many volume/tone knobs
    • Simple and elegant

    My pro-SG overgeneralizations:
    • The dual humbuckers rock loud like a Telecaster on steroids
    • No adjusting of a tremolo
    • Enough knobs to get a good variation in sound
    • Looks hard rock and metal

    My pro-Strat overgeneralizations:
    • Strats have a wide variety of sounds
    • The tremolo adds more to that audio palette
    • A wide variety of pickup configurations are available
    • Looks rock

    Find a guitar that feels good - no sharp fret-ends, a good-feeling neck, etc.
