Alright, I am getting a new guitar soon, and I was thinking of either a Paul Reed Smith or a Fender Telecaster. Anyways, I saw this add in Craigs list:

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/msg/425300289.html

That seems pretty cheap for such a nice guitar. Would you recommend it for blues, jazz, classic rock (mainly what I play), and a little hard rock ("crazy train" type stuff is the heaviest I go).

Would a tele be better?

Is there another brand/model I should check out before taking the leap with the PRS?
Thanks!

Well, PRS are definitely much more expensive guitars, and in my opinion, a tad bit more high end then Fenders.

You could get off with the argument that either guitar is good for rock. I would go with the PRS however, because it's a much more powerful guitar when I've played it, over the Fender Telecaster.

That's just my experience though.
Get off my lawn.

Get the PRS now because it is such a good deal, then save up for that tele!

I've played both, and the combo would make for one deadly arsenal.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

I would go with the PRS... they look more expensive, feel more expensive, and will probably suite you needs equally as the fender. It just comes down to whatever you want.

the only reason I'd be hesitant about the PRS is because I was hoping to buy a guitar from GC (so I could work on haggling, and then sell my old guitar and old amp to them as well, which would lower the price drastically). Also, I would rather have the soapbar II maple, but it's no big deal. the regular soapbar II is fine, just not as pretty

But do you think I would get an overall better deal from haggling a soapbar II at GC, then selling my old guitar and amp to them as I buy it? I bet if I found a nice employee eager to make a sale at the end of the month, I'd get a great deal. Also, I might buy a pedal or two at the same time, making the employee even more eager about giving me a good deal. I could even do it the day after thanksgiving or something for better deals.
Thoughts on this, or do you think this craigslist add is better?
By the way, thanks for the help!

The price is just okay, not great. It's a $500 guitar. Were it not for the case you could probably find a used one for $300.

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

Ask for better photos. Oh, and in case you're anal about these things, he appears to have switched the knobs on it.
