I'm stream-lining my stable, cutting out redundancy everywhere I find it. I'm going to be down to about four guitars when it's all said and done, and one of them is going to be a Telecaster. I've already decided that it's going to receive a Bare Knuckle Piledriver tele pup in the bridge spot, and have good locking tuners ready for it, so what I'm basically looking for is the best value in WOOD and construction without paying extra for nice pups and hardware. Fancy tops or super-boutiqiness divas need not apply - she is going to be a player and will likely share some rough nights with me in some rough environments. I know there is a plethora of tele nuts on this forum who really know their stuff, so help me out in choosing mine! Solid-color finishes and maple boards are favored, but not an absolute must. Thanks to all in advance.
