with my birthday and xmas money im thinking of a new guitar and was look at a squire telecaster but have now seen an epiphone firebird studio which costsw about £50 more and what wondering what people thought and , i play hard rock and punk (kinda like foo fighters , nirvana, sum41, ratm)

my budget would be £280 if anyones got any other suggestions

heres the links to the guitars :


Forget the Telecaster, it's not worth it, but maybe for the music you play. I am not a big fan of firebirds, though they are pretty good from what I know. I would suggest something else, but I'll try to get back to you later.
Save a trip to the RT!

God dammit you had me 10/10
I don't like either, but the Tele more than the Firebird. It really just depends on the styles of music you play, and which you like the feel and sound of better. Have you played either?
A tele with p90's?!

washburn x50pro, save another £20.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Et tu, br00tz?
with THOSE choices, I would get the Firebird. But if you can get the Tele in a better color, or upgrade with to a MIM, get a Tele.
There are people in this world who don't feel it necessary to vomit sunshine 24 hours a day. I'm one of them.

got a guy to check the local guitar shop and he said he could get me the firebird for £190 :O
Hold on, £280 is enough for a Fender MIM Tele, and they're really good, get one

I love the tele, but I also like Firebirds, and comparing a mid-low Squier to a decent Epiphone, it's just no contest for the Epi IMO. Firebird hands-down.
