Hi All, Im a huge fan of both the infamous Blackguard Tele and the ES 335 and have an opportunity to buy either at quite a good price. I ask that you help me take the following criteria into consideration: The style of my music (which is what I play the majority of the time) requires the following: On one hand - funky rhythms, singing/lyrical fairly high gain leads, legato leads, and on the other hand - very clean and round bop-worthy jazz tones. Please note that I am aware of many of the other styles of guitars that are out there but am only interested in comments pertaining to these two guitars. OR just imagine if you had to pick one guitar and had to play jazz fusion, funk, and really clean jazz lead guitar and be able to do Stern, Khan, Early 70's Mclaughlin, Carlton, Ford, Henderson, Coryell, John Abercrombie, Benson, Martino, etc.. and play funky rhythms and or hotter rock rhythms - YES, much of this is in the hands. Lets assume the hands and amp are a constant variable and you can pick between these two guitars. The price is obviously quite a fee but is near identical. Lets imagine they're the same and are not a part of the conversation. Please talk me into one of them or Feel Free to list pros and cons Very thankful for your help.
