[NEWBIE] Looking to pick up playing again and wondering if a Tele is a good pick

After deciding to get back into playing guitar, I wanted to ask you guys about what guitar would be a good choice for a starter like me. I never knew much more than the basics, and I'm not looking to spend more than $200 on anything right now as it's just a hobby for as long as I'm practicing. I've always wanted a Telecaster, but with my price range I'm obviously fine with a Squier or copycats. I plan to play a wide range of music, but mostly hard rock and some metal. I've heard Tele's are not too bad at metal, but I want to hear from you guys, along with any suggestions for which seller to get a Tele from, etc. As of right now I'm looking at the Squier Tele Affinity but I've also heard about Slick guitars, specifically the SL50 being an alright Tele. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me!

I've been dying to own a Jaguar for a long time, so today I went to Guitar Center to check out some Squier Jags. I get there and try them out, only to be thoroughly disappointed. I start trying out other guitars to see what might tickle my fancy, and I see this lovely thing hanging on the used wall.

I fell in love instantly. It sounded great, played great, and looked great. The only issues were some minor blemishes and a disabled rhythm circuit. Certainly nothing that I felt would have justified the $500 price tag. I had been eying this guitar online, but I decided against spending $900 on one. Needless to say, I bought it.

I also got the Fender Frontman 212R in the pictures while I was there. It was $160, and the only issue was a missing treble knob. It sounds great paired with my Bassman 100.

Slap bass help

So I am learning slap bass, and have run into a problem. Whenever I slap, I hear a metallic "clank" of the string hitting the fretboard along with the note. Is this a technique problem? My amp settings have raised bass + treble and lowered mids. I have my tone cranked up and only using the bridge pickup on my bass. These tweaks helped, but I can still hear it. Any help is appreciated.

What’s a reasonable tempo I should expect to be able to play sixteenth notes with 2-finger alternate plucking?

I'm an intermediate-beginner bassist and am interested in funk, jazz and R&B. I'm trying to improve my 2 finger alternate plucking speed and can get it up to around 80-82 BPM (sixteenth notes) but am struggling to keep it smooth and even at tempos above 80.

I'm wondering if I need to switch to a 3-finger technique above 80 or if I simply need more practice with 2-finger. Also, the 3-finger technique seems to be only used in metal/speed-metal; I never hear of it being used in funk, jazz or r&b.

What's the fastest tempo I should expect to be able to play sixteenth notes with 2-finger alternate plucking before needing to switch to 3-finger?

Thanks, mb

[GEAR] Can’t wait to play this Flying V for a ROCK Broadway show!

I play guitar for the show Rock of Ages aboard the cruise ship Norwegian Breakaway. This year I am now the lead guitarist so to celebrate I went out and bought this Brendan Small Snow Falcon Gibson Flying V! I can't get over how great it looks and it fits perfectly in the show. Looking forward to playing some 80s tunes with it!

I also removed the original bridge and installed the Floyd Rose FRX tremolo system so that I can do all those crazy divebombs!
