its that time of year again, when u just get the sudden urge to buy a new guitar. But in all seriousness, my budget is around $1500 give or take a little. I play alternative music like radiohead, coldplay, muse, ect. and play through a peavey classic 30. I want a versatile guitar preferabely with single coils and a neck on the thiner side. Right now my number one choice is this:

If anyone could reccomend some other choices that would be great.

Well that would work. But the Fender necks are little more on the thicker side. You could look into a Jackson DK2 Dinky. It's only $700. Thin neck, HSS combination and a floyd...

Fenders are just so damn boooring and... Bleh....... Get yourself a nice Ibanez.

if your looking for a thinner neck i would recommend a strat, teles tend to be a bit bigger. if you do like teles though then that looks good.

lol you've got it the other way around. 90% of ibanez players just play metal, yet fenders are good for every genre out there. ibanez are the more boring ones.

well when i say thinner i mean not les paul thick lol. I do like tele's well because...Johnny Greenwood from radiohead plays one and hes my god. The sounds nice too : p. I'm pretty sure I want to get a fender. I like the deluxe strat a lot also, i obviously have to go play some guitars.

Those g&l's look very interesting. Hopefully guitar center has some i can try out.

you would not get anything near jonny greenwood's tone with an ordinary tele as he's basically mutilated one with all the mods he's done
