batterypowered Posted January 6, 2004 Share Posted January 6, 2004 OK, here are the facts: 1. I want a tele. (A Nashville tele, preferably, but that's not a necessity.) 2. I'm poor. 3. I'll probably be adding a middle pickup and 5-way switching to it at some point. (assuming I don't find a killer deal on a Nashville before then) So, with those things considered, what's the REAL difference between buying a Fender for 400+ dollars vs. a squier, which I can swing for like 170? The ones I've played have been pretty well the same, as far as I could tell, but it's been awhile since I compared, and I didn't always have an eye for workmanship, or even care, like I do now. I'm thinking like this: Nashville Tele is about 450. I can get a Squier for 170, plus 25 for a pickguard, 10 bucks for a switch, and 50-70 for a pickup. That's under $300. I can afford to change out ALL the pickups to what I want for less than it would cost from Fender. So, any advice? twoblock.net batterypowered.org Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
