Hey Gang,

I have been playing guitar for a year now and have decided that I want an electric guitar. The choices are mind-boogling! I am interested in playing blues, rock, and jazz guitar. My price range is $500. I am leaning towards getting a Fender Telecaster. I am going to start trying out different guitars this weekend. If there are any guitars that you think I should try, please let me know.

...


If you could stretch it to $600, you could get a fine Telecaster type guitar, hand made by people who know what they're doing. They also have Strat styles.

I have seen some guitars that only have one pickup and it is usually located near the bridge. What are the pros/cons of a set-up like this?
Cons: Just one pickup = just one sound. Pros: Cheaper guitar?

This is for when you want a really heavy sound. You only want it for very heavy rhythms and leads. A lot of Death Metal bands use this setup. Chuck Schuldiner in particular. They aren't any cheaper. They are just used for a very specific sound. Kirk Hammett has one guitar with one pickup that he uses for only 1 or 2 songs.
