#2
i believe there is a fender one but i don't think they make it anymore... u might be able to find one on ebay.
#3
You probably won't find it in stores because Fender no longer makes them. He now has a Gibson ES Signature.

they definatly make a fender USA tom delonge strat, its for a fixed bridge, 1 volume pot, 1 humbucker, a standard rose would neck and a turqoise body, ...so its packed with features and extremely versatile. oh and only comes in one colour.

Here's my question for you: Why do you have such an intense need to own one?

Oh. how much is it? and is the baby blue one? i think that one is rad.


its not baby bue, its turqoise. and it was probally something ridiculour like £1,200 when it was in production. if you do buy one, you'll have a nightmare trying sell it for a fair price.

I need it cause i have a gig coming up and we're doing punk songs and I can't go up there with a dark purple Telecaster made in mexico lmao

why not? Lots of punk guitarists use telecasters. Joe Strummer jumps to mind. And D Boon. Isn't doing the most with what you have the whole point of punk?


Edit: A MIM telecaster is going to sound a hell of alot better than a Squier.

If you just want a new guitar, get a Fat Strat. It's insanely more versatile than the Tom D strat and way cheaper.

It comes in yellow too :-p


And I'm pretty sure they don't make a squire version of it.
#20
At least get a better guitar. Get an Agile or something if you have to have a new guitar, or just some pickups.
#21
nah i wanna go out there with a cheap tom d squier. do something different and have a cheap guitar..

dude how old are you ?
#23
So by going out there "different" you mean worse but looking (in your opinion) better.
#24
dude, you can find TD starts on ebay all the time. There usually quite cheap. I found mine in a guitar center used for like 300 bucks. got it set up and its wonderful.

...that doesn't make you different at all... The guy in Fall out boy plays squires, Kurt Cobain used cheap guitars, and so did Johnny Ramone.

and again squire dose not make a version of his strat.

There are 2 types of the "Tom Delonge" strat.

1) Squier Branded, single Seymour Duncan Designed "Detonator" pickup, one volume knob and a flat white scratchplate. Made in China.

2) Fender Branded, Single Seymour duncan "Invader", one volume knob, Pearloid scratchplate. Made in Mexico.

As far as I know, there wern't any MIA ones out for public but I reckon Tom's was an american made. If your going to buy a Tom Delonge strat, pick up the Fender version as the Squier one is a joke. Fine for a project, but you could easily make one for less than what there selling for by modding a Starter pack guitar.

buy it and don't come here whining about how you wasted your money, when you've finally discovered real music.

Buy a hello kitty strat. they are soo punxorz!!!@12111

But seriously. Use your mim tele. No point in spending extra money for something that won't sound as good as what you have now just to look "cool" or "original", I think what you have now is perfect

Not many people have purple telecasters and alot of people have squiers dude. And when you say punk, I think you are referring to "pop-punk", which isn;t really punk.

A black Fender Tom Delonge strat was my first guitar. A real one trick pony that isn't even good for punk. I got it for 250 (clearance at GC) so I suppose it was a "bargain". A seymour duncan invader is a pretty ****ty pick-up, and it has no tone pot, just volume. This guitar is setting yourself up for disappointment, get the fat strat or just a regular strat!
#34
stick with the tele.... I'd take one of those over a strat any day.
