Ok so my birthday is coming up and i made up mind that i am going to get a guitar with single coils. I did some research and i came up with these guitars

Fender Esquire '50
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-50s-Esquire-Electric-Guitar?sku=511313

Fender Highway 1 Tele or Strat
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Highway-One-Texas-Telecaster-Electric-Guitar?sku=515122

Fender American Standard Tele
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-American-Standard-Telecaster-Electric-Guitar?sku=515750

Fender Standard Deluxe

I am looking for a tone of guitarist such as Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, John Frusciante, Jimmy Page, Andy Summers

Recommend other guitars if you want just dont wander out of the single coil's

dont get the esquire 50. you need a neck pup for just about everything, and for a good jimmy page tone you will probably want a humbucker. sorry. final vote: deluxe strat.

American Deluxe Strat
S1 + Noiseless Pickups + Awesome Neck + Locking Tuners + Case = greatness
#4
either the strat or the standard tele i'd say, the strat has a more comfortable neck plus the extra pickup, and i've found tele bridge pickups a little bright for my taste
#5
i found the tele more comfortable to be quite honest and i am looking for more of a jimmy page yardbirds

or highway if you want to change the pickups

07 Fender Custom Telecaster
09 Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster

highway 1 has less finish on the wood.

the highway 1 was a nitrocellulose finish where the standard has a poly finish. the nitro will fade and look ballin while letting the wood breathe as to where the poly is like a shell encasing the wood

i think the quality of parts is better on the american standard
