The Jazzmaster would be largely for the nostalgia value that my first electric guitar was a Jazzmaster. That one didn't have P-90s, though they did already exist back then, and if it did have them they would have been lost on me. As it was that guitar was probably more guitar than a brand new guitar player deserved. I ended up working out a swap deal for a Telecaster 4 years later, much to my parent's dismay that I traded away a 4 year old Christmas gift. Yeah, I grew up in THAT environment....

Okay the dust has settled and I decided on this. Found it on Reverb.



Decided to go with a genuine Fender. It was a bit more than the Benton would have been, but this was what I originally set out to find anyway. So now I wait for it to arrive. As impatient as I am, as soon as I clicked the buy button I took a chair and went out to sit on the front porch to wait for it to arrive!!

MarioD, I'll third you on the Les Paul being uncomfortable, and generally most Gibson-style guitars. Definitely more of a Strat guy myself, although I primarily play Jackson and Ibanez guitars - Ibanez makes the best semi-hollow I've ever played, and Jackson tends to be lightweight which is great for my failing back!

I still say the most comfortable acoustic I've ever played was the Taylor GS Mini (and really most Taylor guitars), with a very close second being a Larrivee OM-03 with a 12-fret neck joint. In my price range, anything from Godin fits the bill. Take a look at the Godin A6 Ultra - great (plugged in) acoustic sound from an electric-sized body.

Nice! I have the telecaster version of that guitar, the "telecoustic". Idk that I'd call it a "genuine fender" though LOL. I mean.. it is but its made in China and no better or worse than a squire or a Benton would be in build quality or sound. Still a solid guitar though. You should check out this list of guitars https://www.guitarlobby.com/best-beginner-electric-guitars/
For semi-hollow guitars I usually recommend Gretsch. EXCELLENT value, owned by fender now so imo its every bit as genuine of a fender as anything foreign stamped with a Fender logo. D'angelico makes some pretty great semi-hollows as well.

Double0,

Welcome to the forum!

One small correction if I may. Gretsch Guitars is a family owned company. Fender handles distribution duties for Gretsch. You can learn more about the ownership +++ HERE +++ .
