Well, in the future, I might (MIGHT) buy a Squier Affinity Tele, just something cheap I would use mainly for slide work.

Well, you must know what I'm into by now, but it would be Whitesnake, Rory Gallagher, well, mostly blues...

So, would it be worth it, considering I would buy a tube amp first, and use the surplus to get that? I have heard good things about them...

EDIT: Maybe the Standard one?

The Classic Vibe Squier Tele is another option ... old school bridge and made of Pine. Some fans felt it didn't need any upgrades.


Hmm... I'm not too sure about the colour scheme of that one, just to be picky!

I would like something that's Vintage Blonde and a rosewood neck, and a white pickguard.

Those are certainly available in the Affinity and Standard series.

But are they decent, and easy to play on? I know there is a bandwagon and such, but I would like to know how it would sound...

Through a decent tube amp, you won't feel the need to upgrade anything soon. Down the road and once you're past the honeymoon stage, you might feel the need to upgrade the plastic nut, or get a more vintage bridge, and the PUs for a certain tone, etc. The cool thing about the CV is the old school Pine body and with the Affinity, you have the tried and true Alder body.

Since they're pretty inexpensive, you also get some really decent Bang for the $$$, regardless of what some people regurgitate about Squiers.

Well, I wouldn't be using it as my main guitar (cause I'm getting a Fender Strat, of course ) so I think the Tele would be worth it as a slide guitar and different tunings and hoohah like that.

I'll get it then!

Nah, Thinlines look horrible to me, and I don't really like the fact of a humbucker on a Tele.

I like the sound of single coils better than humbuckers.
