I learnt to play electric guitar on a Telecaster. I prefer their sound (and how light they are in comparison with a Les Paul)
Although I’ve never played this model, Fender have a great history of making awesome entry level guitars at an affordable price.
One of the big differences between a Telecaster and a Les Paul is the pickups (a device that captures the string vibrations and turns them into an electrical signal that goes through the amp)
Telecasters use single coil pickups, which means they have a brighter and crisper sound, where as Les Paul’s use humbuckers which are darker and heavier sounding. It all depends on your music taste.
Artists such as Keith Richards, Bruce Spirngsteen, George Harrison, Joe Strummer and Muddy Waters use Telecasters.
