So i'm in the market for a new guitar. Possibly a tele. It has to have humbuckers, especially in the bridge position. I hear that some teles or tele copies have these. I'm also looking for a wider (fatter) neck. This guitar won't really be used for that "fender" tone, im going to be using it in relatively high gain settings.

Is there a tele out there for me? I've looked at the squier master series teles, which seem perfect, but they are discontinued. Anything similar to that? What companies should I look at?

You could get any general Tele and install Humbuckers yourself as another option.

Other than that, a John-5 Tele should be fine.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

If your lookin for a tele with humbuckers I recommend the Fender 72 Deluxe. I wanted the same thing your searching for now and I found it with this guitar. I think they're about $800 brand new but I got mine off craigslist for $500.

Well these models may not have Humbuckers at the bridge but I highly recommend Tradition's line of JR models. Most of them have Mahogany bodies and all have Humbuckers in the neck, All which can be half turned off. One model even has a Tremolo on it that doesn't make your strings go out of tune after use.


JR Standard (This is the only model that doesn't have a Mahogany body, It has a Basswood body)



JR Gold (Soon to come with a Tremolo)



JR Vintage (Has a Trem King bridge that returns your strings to tune very well)



JR Signature Pro (This model has three pickups, The one in the middle is a mini humbucker)



The Trem King that the Vintage model has, A Trem King, Is a very well put together bridge. I played one and it returned the strings to pitch perfectly and I could even use it in a "Reverse bar" technique which means pulling the strings rather than giving them relief.

both of those signature models are really ugly. and i don't think i could bring myself to play a signature guitar of guitarists that in my opinion have pretty bad tone.


what about the special edition custom tele FMT HH? It seems cheap for a fender but eh?

I was just looking at Spear guitars this afternoon.
They have some pretty attractive neck-thru tellies. Well, more like metal guitar with a tele twist to it.

I think this would be a decent choice, since its dual hum and mahogany body. You could get some good tones out of those. Of course, it would be best to play first.

If you live in the USA try looking at some Teles shaped guitars that rondomusic.com offers.


Oh yeah. They even offering 7-string tele. See if the neck is wide enuff? :P

well rondomusic has a nice basswood tele. I dunno if i would like the sound of basswood though. Even though its a cheap enough guitar that I could probably just buy it to test it out

anyone know if something like that would be good for punk/hardcore? I recently got a red bear amp and i'm looking for a new guitar, not necessarily high gain, but itll need to do a sound similar to converge.

John-5 tele, '72 tele, Peavey tele with dual humbuckers, and I think charvel makes a really cool tele shape with a floyd rose and seymour duncuns.
