Ive been jonesing for a Telecaster pretty hard lately. While Id really like to get my hands on something like a Suhr, Anderson, or Melancon, finances dictate that Im probably going to end up with a used Fender Tele. That being said are the newer teles any good? Are there any particular eras I should look out for (be it positive or negative)? Is there a huge difference between the ash and alder bodied teles tone? Are the stock electronics any good or should I expect to change them? If so any recommended pick-ups? (Im used to a humbucker in the bridge position, how many of you have put hot rails or a stacked humbucker in the bridge position?) Any other recommendations for a Tele newbie? The only thing Im pretty sure about is that I cant get one with the ash tray bridge because everyone Ive ever played did a number on my hands, just my playing style I guess.
