what's better a fender standard telecaster or a Gretsch G5120? I would hot rod either of them. I would play rockabilly, rock, metal, and ska.

It depends what you prefer, since they're very different styles of guitar. The Gretsch is a hollowbody w/ two humbuckers, the Tele is a solid body with single coils. I'm assuming that the Gretsch would be better for what you want to play, but I think either would do.

I'd say the telecasters alot more versatile, it'd cover your genres preety well, fender standard series is really good quality too, well worth the price

IMO, todays MIM standards are just rebranded squier affinities with slightly better electronics.

However I cant comment on the gretsch, but if you do have the tele bug, for a slight bit extra you can get the Lite Ash Tele which is thrice the guitar the standard is in feel and tone, and much more sexy.
