I really love playing 60's rock and roll, and punk, as well as a little pop punk with a few bands here. My main two guitars are a gibson melody maker and an epiphone les paul standard plus top. I'd really like one more semi-decent guitar as a backup.

I've always loved the look feel and sound of telecasters, they just ooze the sort of style i go for, on the other hand, the yamaha has some massive love here..

The sort of sound i go for is found in this song; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcCrxxBhO2E

So for this style of music, which do ye reckon is better ?? I've been playing for a few years now and i'm not afraid of modding guitars either..so which one is the best long-term prospect??
