I don’t really care if it’s vintage or new just need some advice.
I’ve been looking at a road worn purple tele for a while now. Thanks for the help!Seriously,
I've been gigging as a guitar player/singer for over 50 years. I've never spent more than $1,200 for a guitar. I love my 2016 Road Worn Telecaster (Made in Mexico) I bought for $800. It's a great workhorse Tele and plays and sounds great. Try as many Tele and Tele-type guitars as you can, Made in USA, Made in Mexico, Made overseas. Find a Tele you like, get a good setup, and off you go! There are many great Tele's available these days for less than $1,500 and even less than $1,000. Many of the Squiers are great to. I got my CV50s for $300, and have done many gigs with it as well.
You're 14. You can do as much with an inexpensive Tele as with the most expensive one. The important thing is that you get about the business of learning and wearing that thing out.
Good luck to you!
