I'm thinking about buying a new guitar and amp. I have came down to 2 diffrent ones - Fender '72 Telecaster Deluxe or a Epiphone Les Paul Standard. Can anyone tell me which would be best for playing everything from punk & metal. And Which would be the best amp.
I would go with the Epi Les Paul and A Vox Valvetronix AC50VT. Its a perfect combination and it can do a lot of different stuff since the vox is a modeling amp. In fact, tomorrow im going to be getting an Epi Les Paul myself.
My Gear:

Epi Les Paul Standard
Fender 48th Street Strat
Vox Valvetronix AD50VT
Martin Koa Acoustic
Some crappy unnamed bass
what is you budget for the amp?

No Vox for metal. They arent meant for metal. Depending on your budget for an amp Id maybe go with maybe a Marshall DSL401?
Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio
Ibanez SA120
Peavey Raptor EXP
Takamine Electric Acoustic
Boss CS-3
Boss DD-6
Boss TU-2
Boss MT-2 (For use with my Vox)
MXR M-108 10-Band Eq
Dunlop Crybaby Wah
Peavey JSX Head
Vox AD50VT
^Yea a DSL would be good if it's in his price range, you could also get a used Peavey XXX.

I would take the 72 tele. It's a much higher quality guitar than the epi standard. As for amp, i'm going to agree with the DSL 401 suggestion assuming that it's in your price range.
Muddy Waters Tele - Signed by the members of Canned Heat
PRS Soapbar SE - Signed by Michael Angelo Batio
H&K Statesman Quad EL-84
Dunlop Wah (modded to JH specs)
And if you've got a lower price range, Roland Cubes are good.

Cubes or Valvetronix if your on a low end budget..

Personally id go with the Telecaster aswell.
^His screenname is A7X though...

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?
With my Fender tele, If i put my pod on hi-gain and eq with the old metal V scooped shape then i can get a really beefed up low-endy tone that can do A7X easily.
Well the Tele is going to sound WAY different then the Epi. The Tele Deluxe will be a lot brighter and may sound a bit too brittle for metal. The Epi will sound a lot warmer and thick...but the the stock pickups are crap and can get really mooshy. I would suggest swapping them ASAP if you end up with the Epi.

Personally Id get the Tele Deluxe.
If you have a high budget, a JSX would do the trick most likely. You said Punk and Metal, and it's a very versitile amplifier.
