    Telecaster, just based on face value. I don't own any of them (I have a couple of Jagstangs and a Les Paul).

    I'm kinda leaning towards a tele.  They are just a beautiful guitar.  Off to waltons for me soon. They have a few Schecters too.

    Some Schecter guitars are downright incredible. Their custom shop is world class. There used to be a local shop that carried their California made guitars and man, they are pro-level through and through. 

    Much like Fender though, they make lower priced, import models.

    Both companies make really nice guitars but they both also make some that are meh. 

    Just be sure to compare apples and apples.

  • I have a fender custom shop telecaster, Nash T63, and a mid 80’s Schecter PT (fender shaped headstock).  I prefer the feel and sound of the Schecter PT.  It has dual HB with coil splits.  Very versatile, very comfortable, absolutely love the neck.  I might be wrong, but I think it has a Gibson scale length.  All three have held their resale value, and the Schecter has actually increased from what I paid for it. I’m not sure how much a newer Schecter or one made overseas will hold value, but if the newer ones feel like the older ones, I’d definitely try one out before getting a fender.

    Anyone play a Schecter Reaper guitar?  Looks and sounds pretty cool.   
  • Whichever feels better to you! I went with a G&L ASAT because G&L necks >>>>> Fender necks IMO
