Hi musicians,
I'm going to buy a guitar for my birthday, and after all the choices I've made I narrowed it to either get a Telecaster or a hollow body casino coupe. Which one do you vote for all kind of music? I will be using it with Orange crush 20RT with pedals like EHX Graphic Fuzz, delay EHX Memory Toy, and Bad monkey overdrive.

Please reply with your vote! thanks

I would vote Telecaster personally. I've never played a casino coupe but I have a Tele and love it. I am Fender biased though!

Both great guitars, buy the one that reflects your sound the best.
"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use." -- Stevie Ray Vaughan

"Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherfucker who plays it is 80 percent." -- Miles Davis

I like em both, but I can only choose one. In terms of weight I like casino more though... Which one can handle pedals better?

I just bought an MIM Tele (Classic Player Baja) and I'm absolutely in love with it, but Epiphone archtops really are fantastic too.

I think basically it comes down to what tones you're after. What do you currently have and do you want to get a similar guitar or explore new territory?

Since I just moved to USA, Rightnow I have nothing. All my guitars are in my home country. So yea I need one guitar that can take it all

I guess I'd probably say the Casino then. P-90s have a fair bit of beef to their sound and I've always found it easier to thin out a fat tone than to thicken up a thin one. I think a Tele would be more limiting.

Thank you. +1 for casino. Probably in 2 years I will buy a tele

What color is the Epiphone? The vintage sunburst is gorgeous, but the red one is fantastic as well.

OK I know this isn't what you asked, but I'm a P90 fan, and I would be looking at the Fender Modern Player guitars with those pickups. I player the thinline deluxe MP tele a while back and really liked it, for both tone and workmanship.


I tried the modern telecaster , the fret wasn't really nice..

it is in natural colour, I like it better than sunburst but I'm still thinking about getting a telecaster in lake placid blue

What about a MiM strat with a humbucker in the bridge very versatile and lighter than a Tele?

For what it's worth, there's a few HH Teles in the MIM range. I wouldn't necessarily class them as "real" Teles, but they're pretty cool guitars in their own right. There's also the JA-90 thinline with Duncan P-90s.

Ya i have the thinline ja90 but i left it in my home country. I was also thinkin bout the HH tele , never found it at the local shop though. What kind of music do u play with standard tele? I dont have a band rightnow so I mostly will play it for home recording or just play solo

Why do you say so? I heard good things about hollowbody epiphones, but meh...

Do they have mail in your homeland? It sounds like you have some nice guitars back home. Why not just send one over? Otherwise, Gibson type of hollow body would be too limiting for me. Get something with a Humbucker in bridge and a single coil at neck, or a standard Tele if you want twang and put a mini-humbucker in it. Basically, you gotta decide where you want to be on the growl or twang spectrum. Personally, if I had to choose just one guitar, it would be 25.5" scale. Lastly, how about stepping out and getting a 7-string?

I can just mail it but it costs so much, I'd rather buy another mid-range level guitar for now. So you vote for a telecaster then. Oh 7 String guitar? no ...way.

I finally bought A fender MIM Telecaster in lake placid blue.. It is just more versatile and ya the casino had some minor painting problem so I didn't choose it.
