Okay, so im kinda stuck about these two. I want to get one of them, currently saving up for it (whichever "it" ends up being). I want opinions from people and reasons as to why/why not to buy each guitar. Ive only played on the PRS and I ****ing loved it. It just felt brilliant and right in my hands. But I really dig the Jim Root tele! Both at £800ish give or take a few quid. Your thoughts please!

Get the Jim Root Strat.

They are around second hand for your budget and it's a far better guitar than the Tele.

If you loved the Torero, there's a good chance you won't love the JR Tele.

No, but I love the ability to fine tune it at the bridge end of things. I've never had a trem, so its not a negative to me.

Not really a fan of the strat.

Why is that? I must admit when I played the Torero I just straight up enjoyed it. I really need to find a shop thats got one in but none around here have one...

See if you can play the Jim Root Tele somewhere. The feel of a guitar is HUGE. I'd personally go for the SE. More versatility with the Floyd, and a tone knob. You're also getting a neck-through body on the PRS with 24 frets. But it really comes down to personal preference. And it depends on what you already own as well.

I hope you realize that you've a lot to learn about setting up a floating bridge and FR style trem system then. It also takes quite a while to change strings on FR trem system. So, if you can handle both of those things, fine. If not, don't get a guitar with a FR trem.

Floyds are not hard to work with at all, so long as it's a good trem.

I'd get the Tele just because it looks badass and sounds great. I don't care for Floyds because they sap sustain, and I never use tone knobs. There are a mountain of guitars out there similar to the Torero, and i'd get a Jackson Soloist instead if I wanted that sort of look and feel.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.
