I've been thinking about getting myself a new guitar and amp to get me all psyched about playing again. For the amp I'm pretty set on a Classic 30. As far as the guitar I was thinking about getting a Tele. Right now I've been listening to a lot of Death Cab For Cutie, Minus The Bear, Bright Eyes, etc. Do you think a Tele would be a good choice? I can probably go up to about $700.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.

all day is tele time!

telecasters are pretty awesome, i think telecasters would kick ass for pop-punk (those bands are i beleive ...). and like everyone will say, try it out ... and if you cant, just get it :P

If you're looking to get your passion for music back by buying new gear, you're looking in the wrong place and you're going to waste a lot of money.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

I think an Epiphone Les Paul would be best for any genre if you ask me.

I'm totally that way. When I buy new equipment, I get a rush of creativity and musical energy. I love it. Some people aren't that way, though.

I like those bands and a Tele is DEFINITELY the way to go. I have a 50s classic, if you're into the feel of a guitar and a comfortable neck, check that one out. The thinline should be good, too, but make sure to get the one with the single coil in the bridge, or that's just a waste of a tele (in my opinion).
