Anybody have any experience with the Telecaster Deluxe, the model with the big headstock and humbuckers, vs. the std. Tele?

This is the only guitar I have in my apartment right now, A mahogany Baby Taylor. I got this when looking for a small travel guitar. I was looking at the Martin backpacker before I discovered this.
I also have a standard Telecaster and a Martin 000M

That's very nice. I was at the Taylor factory last week and while waiting for the tour to begin I picked up one of these to play and absolutely loved it. The mini-GS too.

Got my SG yesterday. I quite like it. My fret sense is all screwed up compared to the strat, but I will adjust. Someone has had the cover for the truss rod off and not put it back tho.

Loads easier to play. Lots lighter and I don't find myself trying to squeeze the neck in two as much.

My first humbucker guitar. Man that thing is Soooper sensitive to volume played. Just a little harder with the pick will send you into way more OD than I expected. It's also a lot more acoustic than I expected a solid body electric to be.

Seems to stay in tune quite well. Intonation is awfully close to dead on according to the tuner in guitarrig.

The G and A string both have a pronounced rattle when played around the pickups though. Strum them up near the nut and it's just a clear sound.

And idea wtf that is? Doesn't come through the amp.

I'm going to stop and pick up some new strings for both of them tonight. The SG strings are thrashed.

For 179$ guitar though, I am muy happy.

Thinking about picking up a guitar again. Sold all of mine a few years back when my son was old enough to be mobile...and they had to be stored in cases, instead of the stands in the living room. I wasn't playing much. And may never play a lot, nor will I ever be good. But I've always enjoyed dabbling with a guitar. My son has a little student el-cheapo that his grandparents gave him for Christmas. I play around with it, but I'm a big guy, and it's a tiny toy of a guitar. So it has me thinking I need another one.

I like acoustics, but can't afford one that would make me happy. I don't enjoy "affordable" acoustics for the most part. Never been a fan of playing with the strings a half inch off the neck. So I'm leaning more towards an electric. I've had nice, and I've had really crappy. I want good player that is affordable! My last electric was a Jackson, that played really well. I got it cheap because a tuner was busted. I had it set up and the tuners replaced by a pro, and it was a really decent guitar for no more than I had in it. So I"m probably leaning towards something under $300! I'm looking for recommendations in the Ibanez, Charvel, Jackson, etc range. S/S/D config works, but not the most important thing to me. I love the sound and feel of a Strat, but can't justify $600 on an American that won't be as nice as a $400 Japanese guitar.

I bought one of these a couple of years ago. Best bang for the buck guitar i've ever bought. Can't go wrong.

Charvel and Jackson have gone wonky over the past few years. Something that will definitely keep up with that feel is a Kramer. One of the modern Striker models (not the plywood ones from the 80's) have a lot of bang for the buck, but I think folks are hanging onto them so getting a used one is tough.

I'd say go Ibanez for parts availability, customer support, etc. as well as the playability and sound.

I have an older SA160 from them. Smaller than a strat and light, but fully mahogany so it sounds bigger, like an SG maybe. Feels much faster and the stock pickups aren't bad at all.

A MIM Vintage Modified Stratocaster HSS? That's around $225. Classic VIbe's has a lot of good buzz around it but it's under $400 not $300.

Although you might want to check out the Seagull S6 acoustic. It's a nice little guitar. Higher quality then most beginner guitars by a lot. Made in Canada.

Found my rattle. One of the little screws in the bridge used to adjust intonation is a tiny bit too short. tightened it down, and lost a few cents off of the intonation.... but no more rattle. It will suffice till I can get it looked at/fixed.
