Not sure what guitar I should start saving up for first. I know that I want to have both in the future though

I love Hendrix/SRV/Radiohead/Gary Moore/Snow Patrol/KOL

I also love Gilbert/Vai/Muse/Racer X but I have my RG550 and PGM301 for those tones.

I'd be running them through my Orange Rockerverb 50

Here is the tele I'd get, a 1952 vintage telecaster

I think you should get a strat...

But you should play both at the store and buy the model that you think it's better.

I think you'll get more versatility out of the Strat...

That's tough... IMO everyone needs a good Strat. And everyone needs a good Tele. Personally I'd rather get that particular Tele than that particular Strat. I don't have a Tele yet, but I'd get one just like that.

Off-topic - You have a FIREMAN in production and you have enough money to think about this??!? Jeez.

Go with the tele because the strat is more similar to your RG and PGM. You can get strat-like tones in positions 2-4 on the 5-way switch but you can't get anywhere near a tele tone.

It's being made by a luthier not Ibanez
