So im looking at getting a new guitar and the Fender Standard Tele really caught my eye. Ive heard their pretty good for rock, but i also heard they have a really bad hard rock tone. my friend just played a show and they played Kickstart my Heart by Motley Crue and he used his tele, but his tone sounded fine with a lot of distortion, and it was going through a wireless system to his amp. so if you have any thoughts on Teles for rock/hard rock please tell me!

you are not going to get br00talz with it, but a good classic rock tone is well within the reach of the tele stock. I know because I has one.

a little 59 in the bridge of a tele and a hot single coil in the neck will be great all around

Actually even with a single coil you can make a tele sound really heavy. Bareknuckle makes some hot single coils that sound intense. YouTube it. It's pretty sick. Tele is a good all around guitar.

Despite common opinions, teles are very versatile guitars.
