I worked on a friend's son's guitar. A MIM Fender Telecaster and I was impressed by how good it was.
G&L ASAT special tribute. Those MFD soap bars are really versatile.
I guess I’d call it new folk. Mostly cleans w/ Reverb. Some rock stuff a la the black keys.
I picked the Classic Vibe as I've had good luck with them but the truth is that he should try them out to see which is the best fit for him, if possible. Sadly, even in a batch of guitars you may only have one or two that feel and sound right to a person.
I choose “Other”. Why narrow the focus? Craigslist is filled with -$500 guitars! Buy used and save some money, I say.
I vote that if there’s any way at all you can swing it, you kick in just a little bit more and order him a Schecter PT Special. If you can’t swing it (and trust me, I understand), then I vote for a G&L tribute.
Check out AMS. They offer no interest payment plans that do not require opening an account. They’ll use your existing CC or debit card. I use them a lot for this reason.
I played a used CV 70's HSS Strat with a beautiful birdseyed maple neck last weekend for sale for $300 last weekend. I need another Strat like I need a hole in the head, but it was hard to turn down.
They all look good to me, but without knowing, I'd guess the CV is going to sound the most "Fender" of the the three? I'd want to go with that for a tele sound, and "new folk".
Squier all the way. If he's still playing in another year or so, then go shopping again.
Couple hundred bucks can get a nice playable squier. Add another hundred for a couple upgrades and he's got a nice guitar (nut and maybe some better pickups).
I'm with the other guy's, who said drive and road test a few. Out of the choices, maybe other would be the way to go, especially if there is a big used market on 500 used MIM guitars. If not then Squier CV would be my next choice. Good luck.
I'd look for something used and spend just a bit more. You could probably find a MIA Tele for just over $500.
He went w/ the black one. If he sticks w/ it, in a couple years I’ll take him to a b&m and get him something nice nice. Thanks for the reco’s
Solid choice. Way nicer all around than a Squier. Most likely better fretwork than a player series MIM. Definitely better pickups and bridge.
All good choices. Make sure the neck is what he likes. The G&L Bluesboy had a neck too thin for my tastes.
Otherwise MIM Tele Standard it's hard to go wrong.
Nice choice! That guitar is seriously a do-all. Enjoy!
Looking at this guitar, I am wondering why I would buy a Fender at all. LOL
In that case....find a used Godin Session Custom, one of the best sleepers out there.
