it depends on the sound your going for. the tele has a very unique twang sound, and the neck pickup has a really nice warm tone. the strat on the other hand, is more versatile. i mean you have the choice of hss or sss.

also the strat is lighter, and since your playing pop punk i assume your going to be moving around quite a bit..... you could go either way but the strats gonna give you a more general sound, thats probably better

i prefer teles. they just seem leaner, and i prefer the way the pickups react to your picking dynamics. try em both though. u might prefer the fatter strat sound

Probably a Strat. I know someone has used Teles for punk, but a Strat seems to make more sense for some reason.

Tele FTW! teles can do eveyrthing!!! theres a thread around here about that. Get a 72' deluxe if you want the thick tone of humbuckers. ive seen alot of indie/alteranive bands using Standard Tele

Take a look at a Fat Strat too. That bridge HB gives you a lot more tones to play with if you only have one guitar. Also, I think it's really hard to say a Tele isn't versatile. Really, go play a bunch. If you're just concerned with image or something drag it behind your car and throw some stickers on it.

Joe Strummer (the Clash) used a tele - one of the kings of popish-punk.

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.
