then hot rod it.
but when getting a telecaster, playing for a while would be a pain in the ass for ur picking forearm.

well it depends on your price range, but telecasters are cosmetically all quite similar, so in the end sound and general quality will decide what to get.

i personally have a squier (i know, laugh it out), and after a few alterations it's actually turning into a great guitar (all i need now is some new pickups and i'm done).

so just go to a guitar store, try out a range of them, like squiers, fender mexican, fender american, so forth.

What is your price range?

I would most likely recommend either getting a G&L or an Agile Tele, depending on how much you want to spend.
