So I've been playing for atleast 5 years now and I still play with my good ol' Squier Strat. It's time for change. But, I've been thinking about this for months and I can't decide what to get. I play a lot of Radiohead, Muse, Against Me!, Beck (alternative, punk, rock) stuff, so that'll help.
My choices so far:
Gretsch Electromatic
Fender Telecaster or Telecaster Custom
Some sort of Ibanez

Suggestions welcome.

I don't know, $500-600?
I like the feel of Strats, but I love rock sounds too from humbuckers too.

I love the body on that... but if those are EMG's I'll pass, I've never liked those.

. 2 tapped Duncan Designed Superock humbuckers let you play thick and meaty, or give you jangly single-coil sounds. One of the more versatile guitars around.

lol no emgs which is why i said it isnt one of those crazy metalhead ibanez

Hmm, well than it does sound kind of interesting. Hope they have something similar at Long Mcquade.

A HSS Strat might be a good bet giving you the best mix possible between humbucker crunch and 'that' Strat sound.

I was thinking of getting a Telecaster Custom, then replacing the pickups to Duncan JB/59 combo. Good or bad idea?

How about this Tele ?
It has 2 humbuckers and coil-tapping as well. I think it goes for about 630 USD

EDIT: It says the pickups are Fender-designed but their really Seymour Duncans (a Pearly Gates at the bridge and a '59 at the neck)

I'd totally buy that - but I prefer to buy in stores, so I just hope they'll have it at some local places.
