So, I'm primarily a bassist, but I want to get a guitar. A Telecaster, in particular. Since I'm jobless at the moment, I won't be buying it soon, so I've just been looking up stuff, and I've basically narrowed it down to 2 choices.

Squier Classic Vibe 50's Telecaster - http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Squier-CLASSIC-VIBE-Telecaster-50s-Electric-Guitar-?sku=519376


Squier Vintage Modified SH Telecaster - http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Squier-Vintage-Modified-Telecaster-SH-Electric-Guitar?sku=512575

I'm thinking the latter would be a better pick since I like more rockish stuff, but I'm not sure if the bridge humbucker would be too deep or something for that Alterna-Rock sound. I dunno, what does UG think?
i don't know man... you should try them out and see which one you like. Really that's all that matters is which you like, and not with the forums likes. Even though their suggestions help.
This is true. I'll definitely try both out when I can, but I'm just curious as to what the forum thinks. :P
I'd go for the Classic Vibe because it has two single coils. I honestly don't see the point of having a humbucker in the neck position.

Personally I'm saying Classic Vibe. Granted it's the same mod Keef made to Micawber, but tbh I don't think you should mess with a classic formula like the tele to that degree.

Classic vibe, I'd prefer to have a single coil in the neck position for the el classico tele sound
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.
