Les Paul Jr vs Telecaster?
I have already played a 52 reissue Tele and loved it! However from reviews and YouTube clips a gibson 57 reissue les paul jr is a killer giitar.
Does anyone have any insight on which guitar they would get.
For what it's worth I own a custom made fender strat, a custom fender Tele (in open g), an 01 gibson les paul standard, a nick valensi epiphone riviera, and a gibson es335...I'm just looking for a good backup guitar
I would take any Tele over a Les Paul or any other Gibson any day. Personally, I just prefer Teles and, to be honest, I don't care for Gibson much at all. I like the versatility of the Tele. With a Tele, I can get all the great blues, country, rock and jazz tones I love. There's just something about those single-coil pickups that I can't help but want on an electric (to be fair, I do love guitars who humbuckers as well...especially Gretsch 6120's). Anyway, I'd choose a Tele, but the choice has to be based on what you prefer.
When looking for a backup guitar, you should get the same model as the one you want a backup for specifically. Take New York-based fingerstyle guitarist, Adam Rafferty, for instance. The guitar he uses is a Maton EBG808C acoustic-electric guitar (it's an Australian-made guitar with an incredible pickup system called the AP5 Pro, which pairs a piezo with a high-quality mic and it costs nearly $3,000 brand new in the US). Anyway, Rafferty's backup is the same exact guitar. To be fair, however, I have never played any other acoustic-electric guitar with a pickup system that was even comparable to the AP5 Pro pickup system in the Maton EBG808TE I played a few months back. This is off topic but, if you ever get the chance, try out a Maton with the AP5 Pro pickup system (if it's an older model, look for the APMic pickup system). Once you plug a Maton in, you know just how wonderful an acoustic-electric can sound plugged in. No Taylor or Martin can compare, if you ask me.
