hey, so i've heard that telecasters have a good clean acoustic-y sound to it, but there's so many different telecasters? which ones do you recomend? it must be >750 (under), have acoustic like sounds, along with decent overdriven sound. or would i be better going for a semi hollow?

Thanks!

if you're looking to spend under 750 you're really going to get the tele shape and look but chances are it's not going to sound or play like a nice old tele or a cs model.

buy a used usa model which are decent or look hard and find a used usa vintage model which are quite good.

If you're looking for a more "acoustic" sound the thinline would do you, also at the bridge pickup, the tele's have a twang about them, a rather high end sound, however the neck will have this "acoustic" sound you wish.

Thinline would be great for you. Although I have to add that my american Deluxe that's coming in on Tuesday is quite outstanding but out of your price range

a tele thin line sounds as about acoustic as a Gretsch Duo Jet - not very.

They sound different then a regular tele but they don't sound acoustic and if you're buying a low end one the difference is even less noticeable

i don't want a literal acoustic sound. i want an acoustic like sound, not exactly. i might even be able to bump it up to 1000, depends on how much i make this summer working. is the HH acoustic-y like the regular thinline? or is it more les paulish?

if you do make that much definitely get the American Standard Tele or a Tele Standard and mod it a bit.

well, it's not really the telecaster that has the tone, it's the pickups.
so i could really just replace my neck pickup on my fender showmaster could i not?

it's not the pickups and not the guitar.

it;s the wood, the pickups, the neck, the bridge and the player.

here is one of my teles if you want an example:
