Hey there fellow lefties! I want to buy a cheapo ($200 range) electric to keep at our church in case I need to play in a pinch. It happened last night but, being a lefty, I didn't have a guitar. I don't want to keep one of my 'good' guitars there and have something happened to it.<br /> <br /> The local store has a tobacco sunburst Squire Strat for $179 that's pretty decent, but I'm leaning toward a tele. I found the link below that looks interesting but I have no experience or knowledge of Sawtooth guitars (weird name).<br /> <br /> Any other recommendations?

I'd shop for a budget Tele clone

You also can't go wrong with a Squier Affinity.

I checked out Rondo but I can't get past the strat headstock on a tele.<br /> <br /> I really like this one but it's roughly another 100 bills with a compensated bridge.

That Agile has tempted me. A lot. <br /> <br /> The other thing I would look for is a Squier CV Tele. You might find a used one in your price range. Those are better Teles than they have a right to be. <br /> <br /> I think Reverend Mikey has one he'd part with.

I noticed that Rondo has a few of the SX Teles on sale now. And those have a headstock more like the old Fernandes Strats of the '90s. I always get tempted by those when they are marked down because they make excellent mod platforms. <br /> <br /> I've got a set of GFS Lil' Killer pickups from my Agile Tele that are waiting patiently for a new home. <br /> <br /> I probably should sell those to keep me from buying another guitar.

I sent you an email a while ago. Did you get it?

""You also can't go wrong with a Squier Affinity.""<br /> <br /> I have both a Squier Affinity strat and tele. Leftee is right, and they sell for $199.

I like the looks of the Affinity Tele except for the pale neck. Maybe I could use some brown shoe polish.

"Maybe I could use some brown shoe polish."<br /> <br /> Or "baptize" it with some communion juice...

Yes. Didn't I write back?<br /> <br /> I thought I did. Maybe that was a dream. I'll get back to you this weekend. :-)

Welp, I found a gem! I just bought a Michael Kelly Patriot Custom for $225.
