now i want a telecaster that i can play some metal on, nothing brutally insane etc no death metal or slipknot and stuff

but i want it to be able to still pack a punch

im thinking of maybe the john 5 telecaster

or maybe the squier vintage modified tele SH

im looking at low priced stuff because i really dont spend much on guitars, others may think this is the wrong way to go about it etc but personally i cant justify forking out anything more than 350 quid for a guitar right now.

so yeah, suggestions wanted =]

As someone who uses a tele mainly, if anything your amp is going to be holding the punchiness back, because a bridge single-coil can be pretty damn punchy if EQ'd right.

Well if you wanna dish out more than 350 quid (lawlz. Funniest currency name there is) Then you should look at the Fender FMT HH Telecaster. Mahagony body, set neck, And Seymour Duncan Humbuckers. Its a bad ****in tele. Or if you even want to throw out more, the Jim Root sig is the same but with EMGs and a Flat finish. They are both excelent guitars.

would say that squier i mentioned be okay for its bridge pup if eq'd properly? and i suppose in the mid position combining the humbucker with the single i could get a more powerful tone...

Aye, I do suppose it may, but that still has the issue of your amp, the old pre-series-4 MG's, while the series 4 MG's actually do sound sort of alright for the price if EQ'd well, the old ones like yours will not crunch, it will fizz.

Also I don't really think that's how pickup selection works.

i dont actually have that amp anymore i just havent updated it in a while, and what i meant was, if the bridge SC wasnt getting the full tone i wanted then i could put it in mid position and get some beef from the neck humbucker aswell, because in mid position id be using both the pickups on that guitar
