My new job will have me on the road a week a month, staying in business travel type hotels. I will be in towns where I can find open mics, so I want something halfway decent. Small is good. P90s are good but not a make or break issue. The three top candidates I have now are: Fender Blacktop Jaguar 90 Squier vintage modified thinline tele Epi LP Special singlecut The Fender is the most expensive, but it's nice out of the box and I dig the short scale. $500 The Squier needs pickups, but is only $275 The Epi needs pickups an is priced similarly to the Squier. I do like the individual volume and tone controls. I owned one briefly last year and, aside from the pickups, was a pretty nice guitar. It's out of production now, but I see a couple on eBay. Kinda leaning toward the jaguar. Any other ideas? I've looked at se of the "travel" guitars and I don't much care for them. Just something that sounds and plays decent without mortal fear of its loss.
