Don’t listen to these IDIOTS! Any guitarist worth his salt would tell you tone comes from your fingers! You can have all the best gear but if you can’t play whats the point? I’ve got a USA strat with a hot rails pickup in the bridge and a standard mex tele so I know what Im talking about. The tele is different but it certainly isn’t crap! I can play all those great metal riffs on the tele and get just as good a tone maybe a little thinner but nothing to worry about. So save your money learn to play well on the gear you’ve got then invest in a good quality valve amp. Oh..and as for no playing rock on a tele, Hendrix played one on a regular basis! Hope this helps
