Yeah the SG is better for more rock type genres even though the Tele can do that, just not as well.

lots of indie bands are using teles now so that might be cool. there are some teles out that are made for more rock that have a differetn pick up in the middle were there usually isnt one there. So why not try it out.

an SG definitely but u would have to get used to a neck heavy guitar
Lunatics on pogo sticks
Another southern fried freak on a crucifix
Hicks don't mix with politics
People on the street just kickin' to the licks

I hate heavy necks.

If you can get a Tele with a humbucker then I'd definitely go with that.

Get a tele. Put a higher output or dual coil pickup in the bridge.

Like.. The Dimarzio Chopper-T.. Ritchie Kotzen uses one and he can get pretty darn heavy at times.

My personal preference would be the standard strat esp for hardcore/punk music, plus SGs still have that hefty midrange thats suitable for indie and stuff. But the bottom line is you really should play both and see which one you like better.

Sorry, but those guitars are far too different to even begin to compare.

SGs are made of mahogany, which provides and deeper darker tone, compared to the alder equipped Telecaster, which is much lighter and bright.

For hardcore music, you would probably want the SG.

For indie music, you'd probably prefer the Telecaster.

But getting the same tones would be ridiculous.

You really need to reconsider your options and priorities.
Gear:
Fender Standard Telecaster (Sunburst Finish)
Washburn X-Series Electric (Black Finish)
Ibanez Electric-Acoustic (Black Finish)
Ariana Acoustic

i say you should get a fender strat from around the 1990s, great sound, mines got lazer pickups which is cool, ive also got a 68 fender strat, its pretty beaten up and dosnt sound very good but still its a 68 fender lol.
Damm you Dennis!!!

Depends on what you like really, i can get a blues tone that i absolutely love out of my SG but i think the tele gennerally has too much twang for the blues but i know some local bluesmen that love thier teles.

Well for blues?
The Tele isnt that famous for blues, Muddy Wtaers has used it, but for blues its basiclly Strats when your taling about Fender.

On the SG: Listen to Cream, the fat hubmucker sound can be very nice for hard blues, Clapton used an SG for Cream.

Oh your God.

Play them yourself, see what you like better.

They're both shockingly different guitars.

Get one of the '72 custom teles. They have humbuckers. If not, go for the SG if you're willing to take the time to get used to a neck-heavy guitar.
