I am a bassist first and foremost. However, I wanna purchase an electric guitar, as a songwriting tool. I'm in a blues-rock duo, i am the bassist, and my friend is the guitarist. My price range is about 350$ max. I've really gotten into blues music, so I'm leaning towards maybe a Telecaster or Strat. There is no "best guitar" It's all a matter of opinion. You can use LP's or SG's or Strats or Telecasters or Jaguars etc for blues. I am leaning towards a Telecaster, or maybe a Jazzmaster/Jaguar, all Squiers. Unless i can get a used Fender for under 350$. Anybody who plays both guitar and bass, What do you think for bluesy music, which of these guitars would fit the role the best? Stratocaster's are great, but they just seem so common. Epiphone Dot is a cool archtop. Epiphone Wilshire? I just don't see myself with a Les Paul.
