Ok, there is the exactly same thread but it's too old... All the models suggested in the thread have been discontinued. And obviously rondomusic offers only one kind of agile telecaster copy right now. So I'm posting a new thread here.

So under $300, which telecaster copy is the best? Any suggestions?

You know you can get a MIM telecaster (Fender) for 399$

wait for more Agiles to come back in stock, really quality stuff

Built from pine? Hmm, I wonder how that sounds...

They used pine in Telecasters before switching to ash and alder.

The Classic Vibe one looks to be really interesting. I still really want to try one out, they're supposed to be a modders dream.

I thought that Esquires were made of pine first...

Hence they got the nickname 'Pinecasters'.

But the Classic Vibe is pretty much the BEST one, most likely better than the Agiles.

The Classic Vibe Tele is listed as being in 'Vintage Blond' - but it just looks plain white to me. Anyone know exactly what the finish is?

I could care less if Fender used pine before ash and alder, there likely was a reason that they changed it. In the world of guitars, pine is the worst wood you could use. If you see a guitar made out of pine... run in the opposite direction.

Also, +1 to the guy who said wait for more Agiles to come back in stock. Sign up for their emailing list and you'll be the first to find out.

Just because it is a soft wood, if you are stupid enough to drop it. They are very resonant though, and are a good tone wood, just really, really soft.

Pine is a good sounding wood. Plenty of builders use it. Have you ever owned or played a pine guitar? The reason fender changed is disputed. Most sources say that it is beacuse pine wasn't hard enough to be used in a workhorse guitar. But a fair few luthiers use it.

I played a pine Strat copy once through a boutique tube combo, it sounded so dead. But really, why would anyone want to use it other than because it's so inexpensive? If you want a light wood, basswood is a good choice, or poplar, but pine?
