In the next month I am going to buy one of these guitars. They both look cool and appear to suit me for playing classic rock, rock and blues. Which one do you think is the one to go for?

Out of no experience whatsoever, I'd suggest the 72, because the humbucker. But that's because I like to whinge about hum.

The '72 would probably do you better for the rock/classic rock type stuff.

The 72, then save up for 6 years to get a real Wide Range pickup.

I'd go for the Baja Tele, it's IMO the best MIM Tele available nowadays.
- Fender American Standard Ash Telecaster w/ DiMarzio Chopper T & Twang King
- Alhambra 5P
- Laney Lionheart L5T-112
- Line 6 POD XT
- Suhr Shiba Drive
- MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay
- Dunlop Cry Baby

Baja looks better, and has a more usual tele sound.

'72 if you want something a bit different.

id get the baja, im sure the twisted tele pickup can get a crunchy hard rock sound

Baja.

The humbucker in '72 doesn't realy sound like a humbucker... The Baja on the other hand is the best MIM Tele you can find, even rivals some Americans tonewise!

i love the '72. sounds great, might still get you a tele sound with some tone tweaking on the bridge pickup
#15
Baja, because it has Tele single coil and humbucking tones. The '72 wont give you classic Tele sounds because its humbucking, the Baja is both (due to its innovative switching system)
#16
Ooooh looks like it's going to be the Baja I think

Has anyone played or owned a Fender Baja Telecaster? I'd like to know how good the finish is and how well its crafted? I'm prefering the blonde/butterscotch colour atm, thanks guys

I've played it and almost bought it! It's really nice in the butterscotch finish; very well made, and great feeling and sounding. I really liked it better than most MIA Teles I've played.
