Hey fellas, I bought a helix, and it has allowed me to sell all of my other gear, which puts me in position to buy my first truly nice guitar. Up to this point, I have bought a MIM strat and changed the pickups, epiphone les paul, changed the pickups, and a MIJ nash 1995 tele (which I love) and changed the bridge to a lollar. All of these are ~$500 guitars with about 200 dollars of pickups. I am looking at a 1500 to 2500 dollar type guitar, and I was wondering what the consensus on a good fender style (probably tele style), sweet playing (little vintage, little shred) type guitar is. Maybe dual humbucker? Looking at stuff like the fender elite, suhr teles, maybe fano type stuff? What is good and worth my hard earned teacher dollars? thanks in advance.
