  • Fender Telecaster vs. Gibson 335

    Deathmatch. Which do you choose?


    Telecaster

     

    335

     

    No there are no other options. No there is not a poll. Focus.

    If I choose not to decide, I still have made a choice.  :mantongue:

      I did not really bond with my telecaster. Probably because it did not immediately make me an awesome country picker.

      I'd like to try the 335.

    Tele.  I want to be cool and saw 335, but I know that deep down I'd prefer the tele.

      Tough one! I'd choose the 335 for the neck.

        Kinda seems like, "what's more important: lunch or pants?"--they're hardly in the same category for me. I'm a Tele guy, never played a 335, but I'm interested enough in them to reject the demand that I choose...

            With a little creativity you get that sharp Tele sound with the way you dial in a 335 and the right amp, but a Tele can't do a 335 and has none of the sonic range. You guys are stuck with the image thing without ever having done any experimentation.  A 335 is way more versatile.  Maybe not as comfortable to wear on stage, but a lot more versatile.

            Hope this helps.

            Strats are kinda curvy/feminine looking.  Might be gay.  Book of golf jokes instead.

          An easy choice; the Telecaster.

            Stock?

             

            The more versatile choice is the 335.

              As far as gigging goes, a Tele is superior. With a good amp, it can cover almost all the needed tones. It can fall over, have food and drink spilled on it. deal with temperature extremes and still deliver. If a 335 falls over or gets food and drink spilled on it, the gig is over and you are off the luthier, wallet in hand.

              Leo hit a grand slam home run with the design of the Tele. A Tele is one less thing to worry about on a gig.

                Yeah... I've had a number of guitars come and go over the years but my Tele is the one I never even consider trading or selling. It's not always the most sexy and exciting guitar, but as a dependable, reliable tool I couldn't ask for better.
