Ive been struggling on deciding wether i should get a telecaster or stratocaster type guitar and i was wondering which would be the best for a begginer. P.s (the type of strat i would get would be a HSS Strat)
Telecaster gets my vote. Great guitar to learn and for a pro 👍
As Jimmy said, get down to a store and play them both and get the sales guys to give you a demo too.
Think about the styles of songs you’ll be learning and wanting to grow towards too and let them know that.
Either are good for beginners. Both have a nice (forgiving) neck set up which won’t be too hard on your fingers as you start to learn chords and notes etc.
Both offer decent tones and sounds to give you options for different music styles to learn.
The Strat is probably more popular with beginners as its a more common guitar I guess. I wouldn’t worry too much at this stage if you are getting the cheaper end copies and just learning but if you’re budget is allowing you to get the proper versions, spend some time in a music store with each type and get a good feel for it. See the store assistance play them and let them know what style of music you’d be learning.
Good luck and happy learning
