Lately, I've been wanting to get a new guitar. I've narrowed my search down to two guitars; a Fender American Standard Telecaster (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-American-Standard-Telecaster-Electric-Guitar?sku=515750) and a Rickenbacker 650D Dakota (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rickenbacker-650D-Dakota-Electric-Guitar?sku=513610). There's only one problem; although I've played the Telecaster before and I like it a lot, I've never actually played the Ric just because I can't find one anywhere. I've played other Ric's before and loved them, but not this specific model. It's cheaper than the Fender ($899.99), and I've heard tons of praise for it, but I'm just not sure.

I play mostly Indie Rock and Alternative Rock, but I venture into other territories from time to time. So, what do you say?
