As a person who's terrible in making decisions, I have turned to this forum for help.
For the past 4 months I have been looking for a new guitar. At the moment I own a Epiphone LP and a 20 year old Hyundai Strat. The Strat is completely useless right now. All the screws are rusted and it seems that the neck has been bend.
The LP is great, but I have been playing a Yamaha Tele a few times and I must say...it's so much easier for me to play. Playing the LP starts to hurt after a while. It's far too heavy for me. I don't like to admit it, but as a girl it seems I do need a somewhat lighter guitar.
Small wrists and all...
So anyway, to get to the point. If I'd have all the money in the world, I would buy a Fender Jaguar. But unfortunately I don't. So I gave myself the following options:
1. Squier Jaguar
2. Fender Modern Player Jaguar
3. Squier Tele (or another good brand)
4. Stripping down my old Strat and rebuilding it.
I would try to go for a short scale if possible.
The music I play is indie, grunge, alternative, rock. Stuff like St Vincent, Nirvana, System of a Down, Jimi Hendrix etc. It's hard to do solo's on the LP. I didn't have that problem on the Tele.
Which of my options would you recommend? Or maybe somone had an even better idea.
