Hey guys,
So, this xmas i expect to either get quite a large sum of money from all of my family members, or a new guitar. Either way, i'm getting a new guitar.

I've narrowed it down to three guitars. I want either,
one of these.

Or one of these,

Or perhaps a,

So heres what i wanna know. Which is better suited to me? I love Teles and Jags, but i've heard Strats are more versatile. I used to have a Strat, but i didnt like it much.

I'll be using it for blues, classic rock, rockabilly, a little jazz, and punk.

My budget will be somewhere along the lines of $800 USD. Which i think is around 400 euros.

Thanks guys, P O E.

Oh man, definitely a Strat.

If you have that much to spend, you could look into a Classic Player's Strat instead of just a standard MIM. Maybe even find a used MIA Standard, or a Highway 1. The CP is worth looking at though.

if your budget is $800 get a strat and a tele

I'd go for the jag, but that's only because everyone hates me.

Seriously though, the jag.

Strat, only try em at a store. From my experience, all strats are different.

in my opinion tele's are the ugliest looking guitars of all, so i would go with a jag, simply because everyone else has a strat so it would be something different i guess

Are you happy with your amp? If not, I'd suggest getting an amp instead of a guitar.
Otherwise
I'd go with the jag. But i'm kind of biased as i'm constantly GASing over mustangs and jags.
Gear:
Fender CP Jazzmaster
Schecter PT Custom w/ Dimarzio crunch lab/liquifire
Marshall JCM2000 DSL+Orange 4x12
Orange Tiny Terror+Mesa Electra Dyne 2x12
Boss TU-2/NS-2/DD-6
Maxon OD808



MY BAND!
