tele, tele tele! Neastguy, are you the cat w/ the Zep medley? You NEED a tele, rosewoodboard, alder body, dragon pic optional LOL [/QUOTE
yep I'm the zep medley dude,, I've always wanted a tele, but the custom slingshot is catching my eye again.....
You can talk an american standard tele down to around $800 probably. Not sure if you could do it with a sunburst though. I think that my vintage white tele 52 is just as sweet looking as my 3 color sunburst american standard strat. To each his own though.Originally posted by neastguy
the only thing I dont like about the 52RI (although I havent played one yet) and I know this is petty but are they all just plain wood finish....I kinda wanted to get a burst if its gonna be a tele...
no love for the custom slingshot?Originally posted by sundaypunch
If you are looking to be as diverse as possible I'd recommend a Gretsch or Rickenbacker. You can't go wrong with a Tele or Junior as well. If I had to limit myself to a diverse set of 6 electrics this would be my list (in no particular order)-
-Rickenbacker 360 (maybe even a 12 string)
