^. My band plays stuff like Muse, and poppier stuff similar to early All American Rejects or Jack's Mannequin. And at home, I occasionally like to play some metal (Lamb of God style stuff, or basically just core style metal I guess).

Thanks.

I've been checking out Guitar Center's stock of Tele's, and they seem to only have Squiers that have been modified with humbuckers, no MIM Fenders. Are those any good, or would a MIM Fender without a humbucker have enough punch to get the tones I'd be needing?

just buy a standard mexican tele, you'll be fine, ... yeah it doesn't have the high gain output but that doesn't mean you can't play metal on it.
If anything, you could replace the bridge pickup later on with a single coil sized humbucker if you really want and coil tap it or something.

John 5 sig could be reasonable.

Would really, though get a telecaster which is a telecaster, has that middle config 'quack' and that great neck sound.

Would never really use a tele for lamb of god. kinda insulting, to be honest.

I use a G&L asat classic.

I play everything on it, except metal.

And subgenres of metal.

Maybe get a bigger budget? Unless you find a decent used G&L you're gonna be strapped for nice teles imo.

Squier guitars can be pretty good, depending on the model.

The Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom, for example, is really nice for the type of music you want to play.

The Classic vibe Teles are awesome.

Awesome indeed. But they may lack the bit of punch TS is looking for.

Yep, the Squier John 5 Tele gets pretty damn heavy.

You can see and hear one of those being used here, by the rhythm guitar player (the guy on the left).

I'd go for that 'paul.

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden
