    I'd love to have either of the first two.

    In the pictures anyhow, I don't like how dark the 3rd one is.

    Get a soild body. That third one looks great to me!!! These are very versital guitars you can get tons of tones out of them. It will be a nice addition to the 335. Spend some time adjusting the knobs and vary how close you pick to the bridge, and you will find some killer tones from a solid body tele. Great for rock, blues, jazz, rockabilly and country. If I could have only one guitar, it would likely be my tele. My current #1 is my Hamer Newport which is a lot like a 335, but I still would chose the tele if I could just have one.

    I hope it's not a soiled body, har har ;)

    I'd get the third one, looks like it's gotta lot of vibe. Report back and tell us which one you decided to buy!

    I guess you can't go wrong with your choosings, all will be great for rhythm, I think there were Teles before there was rhythm ;)
