Classic player series for sure, particularly the baja tele.
Yeah man, I seen that.
Did you see the ad about the purple "Lesser Paul?" It was one off of Payless Guitars haha, they were asking $2200 for it. Thank god somebody flagged it and posted up about it.
Unfortunately, I don't know my Fenders like my Gibson/ESP products. So, I definitely need to be careful!
I have a MIM Nashville Tele that is ROCK SOLID! I can get awesome Strat tones in the notch & middle positions. And it is all Tele in the bridge and neck positions.
If a real Fender vibe is what you're after, the Nashille Tele is hard to beat for versatility.
The Nashville Tele is sweet! Their pretty affordable too.
The new AM Standard guitars are a good value IMO 999. with case
I'm a big fan of the MIJ Strats. Mine is a '96 62 reissue with alder body and I swapped the pups w/Texas Specials. Dunno about the JV sig as I've heard the necks are a little fat. Absolutely a plus on the Texas specials! Switch on your bridge and your about as close to a Tele as you can get without actually having one in your hands. My personal preference wouldn't be a maple fretboard though as I think that could make things too bright. In the end though, play everything you can...don't be so strict on your price....for a little more, you may be able to get something a lot more than you imagined. Good luck.
the HW1 Strats/Teles are a great value. 85% American and made in USA. No HSC though, but you do get a gigbag. The hardware isn't as good as the American Std, but the playability and the sound is better IMHO.
For some reason Sam Ash was selling the Sunburst rosewood strats for only 650 bucks and i had a 20% off coupon. Now I am the owner of a brand new Strat that I don't ever play. But I got a good deal on it!
+1 - The Nashville Tele gets my vote for "best value" in a Tele/Strat since you can get both sounds out of it due to the middle pickup and the 5-way selector switch.
In the Strat world I think the Deluxe Players Strat is a good deal... American hardware (including Vintage Noiseless pickups just like the Clapton Strat) with some nice finish options and a cool extra button that turns on the bridge pickup in pos. 4 and 5 so you can get even more pickup combinations.
Either of these 2 guitars can be had for under $600 so they are a pretty good value.
The best value would be a cheap-ass Strat that you got EC to autograph with a photo;sell it on EBAY and buy a nice LP.
Dude, one of our members is selling a good looking MIM 60's Strat...here's the thread:
Hope that helps...new ones go for around $399, and it looks like he'd take around that. Good luck!
Thats not bad, but no maple fret board!
This is what I really want...
But the problem is, that finish isn't an option for the re-issues. Couldn't I just have it sanded/clear coated to look like that? I'm not too crazy about any of the finishes they come in. But that thing... That is the epitome of the Telecaster I desire. So what would be the correct way to make it look like that?
This is the one, guys!
