As well as the infamous John 5:

And this dude (who's name escapes me) from The Chariot:

Amps.

The amp really gives the high-gain sound, not the guitar.

Here's a little metalesque playing I did quickly with my Strat bridge pup, just a single coil. Amp model is a Bogner Uberschall on the PODxt Live.

Feedback isn't inherent in single coil pickups any more than humbuckers (for a quality pickup). However, there is some hum associated with single coils that can be taken care of with good shielding or a noise gate early in the signal chain.

Also depends on how much gain you have, how loud you are playing, etc.

Similar clip on the Les Paul for comparison.

Hmm well my Dream Guitar as of the past two years has been a Gibson Les Paul 56 RI Goldtop with the P90's. But that's a ways off. My second guitar would definitely be a Telecaster. I'd feel kinda wasteful having two guitars doing the same thing. Should that affect my decision at all right now though?

I would say, if you want a Tele eventually, at least seriously consider it right now. Otherwise, you're just getting a guitar you'll replace eventually. Plus with your other gear, the Tele should give you a very versatile setup.

Why even worry about it? Those two guitars are as different as night and day anyway and your playing styles may change, or if you're fortunate, your styles will encompass an even larger range and you'll be a versatile musician. If it doesn't work for you later, sell it.

As I said before, my old Fender Tele did well at rock/hard rock.
No feedback, no squeals, no thin sound, but it was a good quality stock American-made Fender.
Your results on something cheaper may be different so it's best that if you go the Tele route, try and find a used MIA.

I played a Highway One Tele I liked pretty good and the other American Standard they had was in pretty bad shape it needed a set up very badly. The tone knob fell off when I picked it up........ I'm curious to how a well set up one plays. I think I might like the 3 saddle bridges better though. So standard Highway one or the 52 reissue? I really dig the natural look on the 52 Telecasters. But I think it'd be around $850 shipped. Would it be worth it to go the couple extra bucks for the 52?

Alright just another idea........ Get a cheap guitar from Rondo replace a bunch of parts with Guitar Fetish parts. I'll have a cheap beater and I'll learn about guitar. And then I get the guitar I really want for Christmas/Birthday (Theyre really really close together) plus my own money. Then I could probably break the $1000 dollar price range with a couple hundred to spare. Eh?

Why skip around? I think you already have a cheap Rondo beater that you can mess around with. If you want to mess with parts, why do it on a new guitar?

Just get the guitar you want.

If you go with Rondo, go with an Korean made Agile instead of another Chinese made SX. You could also get a nice Korean made guitar from Guitar Fetish and you wouldn't have to change out the pickups. Then again, if you are going to have more money at Christmas time, why not just wait and get an MIA Tele.
