PRS does have a sub-$700 "Santana" model guitar which is made overseas instead of in the actual PRS factory, but a $400 PRS might have me checking serial numbers too...

R2D2 is the real PRS resident expert, but I'm not sure if he reads threads that get this long and off-topic. :kwink:

but hey if you don't want to buy a P.R.S. get a strata dn set everything on the guitar the way it says it is supposed to be set and you will have yourself a really nice guitar, and also the strat is more versatile than a tele, it has 3 pickups and a 5 way switch and it also has a tremolo, and look at all the people that played a strat, stevie ray, jimi, eric clapton, jeff beck, richie sambora, and little do people know but steve vai also plays a strat on occasion.

You're right. I didn't know that Steve Vai played a Strat. I knew he played Carvins, but oh well. Strats are great instruments.

Steve Vai what the hek. I have one of his solo albums and the live G3 album. I really don't think there is much music involved just teqneqe. I don't enjoy listning to him it all sounds the same. Now a reall guitarist/ Musician is Eric Johnson, it is intremental butit isn't a flambouyant shred shouw, if i want that i will go to a guitar show.

*ducks*

George Harrisons played one, so has Keith Richards, Steven Mason, Jon Foreman, Owen Thompsen, the list could go on. Your right in saying that your not gonna find many people shredding on a tele or playing phenomenlly fast but there is much much more to guitar playing than playing fast. You can't say that "high caliber" players don't use tele's tho.

And if you're still into "phenomenally fast," check out some bluegrass music, where the electric guitarists often play telecasters with speed that would impress anyone.

btw, steven curtis chapman plays a tele too...

This is true, I'm not into bluegrass music but they can tear it up on a guitar and a banjo.

Why are you guy's arguing about which musicians play what guitar? That's not going to solve anything. It's all personal preferance. I've seen people play just as fast on a tele as a strat. In fact this local guy named Steve Wyle is an awesome guitar player. He plays scales so fast that he had to get a special metronome that went up past 208 bpm. And he doesn't just go to triplets, he plays 1/4 NOTES! He plays a yamaha tele.

I wasn't aware we were arguing I thought we were discussing the strengths and weaknesses of each guitar

Yeah, sorry. Bad choice of words.

I agree with you guru. The neck on a tele is a bit faster and playable than a strat. I saw this neck in guitar 1 mag that has a 10.8 degree twist to make it more playable. I'm not sure how it's twisted, but I think that would be cool to try.

It actually depends on what you are used to. I am used to larger necks (acoustics, Strats, Basses) so I'm better with a Strat. I can't play a tele well at all
