    Does anyone know some good brands that make a double humbucker guitar similar to a Telecaster? I'm very interested in Music Man Axis guitars but can't find many without the Floyd Rose...

    The first thing that comes to mind is a Hamer Talledega. They have a model with P-90's (or Phat Cats?), and a model with humbuckers. I think Nick Huber makes a body shape similar to a Telecaster. Both are fairly expensive.

    What needs to be similar to a Tele? The body shape? Bolt on neck? Scale length? My main guitar is a Telepartscaster, and I'd like a humbucker guitar to go with it, so I'm interested in what everyone comes up with also.

    Yes I like the body shapes or something similar and usually prefer a bolt on neck.

    Axis Super Sports are all over the place. They come with a hardtail or vintage trem.

    G&L made a dual hum ASAT. I think I might have seen one on ebay just last week.
    Schecter has their PT, and it's pretty dang good considering the money.
    Carvin will put whatever you want into a TL60.
    Charvel has a tele body with 2 hums, but might also have a floyd...
    And Fender has a '72 reissue with dual hums, not wide fields, just std hums.

    Love my tele deluxe. It's a great hybrid of a Fender and Gibson.

    Interesting, Fender made a traditional style Tele with HH? I thought I was doing something different. lol
