Hey, thought I would explore the superior knowledge available in this forum for some advice...
Looking for a new guitar to move from pure and simple acoustic towards the electric end of the scale.

The music I like is somewhere in between blues - 60s and 70s Beatles, Stones, Hendrix etc. - and 90s-present britpop and indie like Oasis, Blur, The Libertines.

I may be able to get guitars at wholesale price through a friend in the industry in which case I'm looking at G&L USA Asat Bluesboy, Fender USA Telecaster Thinline and an Epiphone Elitist Casino... If not I'll be looking at the G&L tribute version, the standard Chinese made Epi Casino or a Mexican Tele...

I'd also be open to a normal tele not thinline, but I really like the humbuckers on it.

Which path do you guys think I should take? I'd really appreciate some opinions.

I think singlecoils would fit better to you music than humbucker.

I agree. Go with an American strat or tele.
Treble>Epiphone Prophecy EX - MXR micro Amp - MXR Blue Box - MXR Fullbore - MXR Noise Clamp - Vox AD30VT
Bass>Ibanez BTB505 - MXR Blowtorch - MXR D.I. - Peavey MaxBass 700 - Peavey TVX410
I'd actually go with the humbuckers, a tele with humbuckers gives you more room to grow and expand than a similar guitar with single coils
Hey guys, so if anyone sees this I've got updates on my situation...

Even at a wholesale price, all the above guitars are out of my league... So now I'm looking at a Chinese Epi Casino/Tribute G&L BLuesboy/Mexican '72 Thinline Tele.

I've heard bad things about Mexican Fenders and Chinese Epis so at the moment I think I'll go with the tribute. What do you think?
absolutely. G & L tribute series are excellent guitars. That is what I would do.
Gibson Les Paul Classic
Fender Stratocaster (Mexican)
Hagstrom Ultra Swede
Music Man Axis Sport

I'd go with the Thinline. Most Mexican Fenders are about almost par with American ones.
