Well all I could use some serious help on this one. I am currently looking to buy an electric guitar (for rock purposes--mainly rhythm guitaring). And I cannot choose what to get. On Musicians friend you can find these Epiphone Les Paul Transparent Blue (Elite if possible--the elite is made with Gibson parts, just under the Epiphone label = cheaper). Or a Fender Telecaster--These things are classic but I still really love the Les Paul. Also: Either the Spector Legend 4 4 string - Slate Gray or a Fender P - Bass (Color Choices are needed for this one as well. Please provide some) Please give a detailed response of your decision...so that I have something to base my choices off of. Thanks Guys!
