Hello UG. I was browsing Craigslist and came upon a few interesting things.

Ive been looking for a new guitar lately, and these all seem to be great options.

Now, the neccesary information.
I play classic rock, shred guitar, progressive, metal (old school like Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue), a bit of blues, stuff like that.
I play through a Line 6 Flextone II.
1000$ is about my highest.

I dont think I missed anything...
Well. Opinions?

The first post has been deleted...but I would go with the Explorer for your playing styles...but the tele has a lot more style, maybe if you put some kind of stacked humbucker into the bridge it could fit your style a little better. Both are nice guitars though.
Edit:How do you like that flextone btw?

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

The first post shows up fine for me. If it doesnt, its a 1992 LP Standard thats a little bit relic'd. That tele does look awesome, and I like the way single coils sound. The explorer would be a good choice too, as I really like the body shape. And the flextone is pretty cool. Its not perfect, but it sounds nice.

Edit: First post has been deleted, so thats out.

For me it says the post has been deleted by the author. If you're willing too, go for the tele. But if you do by the explorer, thats 200 bucks you can use for something else cool. Plus it comes with a hardshell case, the tele does not.

Thanks for your opinions guys. It seems like the main consensus is towards the tele, and I would have to agree. If I do get that, do you guys think I should drop a stacked humbucker in there or keep it how it is? It seems like that would be a play-to-find-out sort of thing.

well it might be a little harder, with the bridge plate, I'm putting a hot rails into my tele, tomorrow actually. My friend put one in his, and now is one of the hottest guitars I've ever played/

Guys, I found this.

That telecaster is apparently not as advertised. Should this be a problem?

Also, I found a few more.

About the JEM, I honestly couldnt care that it is signed by Steve Vai. I appreciate his playing, but Im not wanting the guitar for him signature. Are JEMs any good? Is 800 a good price for a JEM?

About the V, it has a Bigsby. But also, it apparently has locking tuners. Ive heard Bigsby's go out of tune really easily. Would locking tuners keep it in tune?

Thanks.
