Really sorry for seeming like a pest, but I'm looking to buy a tele and I've found two to my liking.

Squier Tele Custom II P-90

It seems the one without the "better" pickups costs more? Scared to dip into my pocket till I find out the difference.

Hugely appriecated. x

From a technical standpoint Humbuckers are better then P90s, espescially when it comes to noise and hum. I personally prefer P90s, which is more raw and kinda between humbuckers and singlecoils, but that's just my opinion.

Hey Dannz,

If they were running people off for being a pest, I would have been gone a long time ago. I think you'll find that everyone on this forum is willing to give advice, opinions, etc. to anyone that asks for it.

If I recall correctly, our very own Vic Lewis owns a Squier Tele Custom (I believe it's the one without the P90s) and he has raved about it.

Good luck with your search, and let us know what you decide on.

Jim

Im a fan of P90's too, but own no guitars with those pups. :( the last thing I need right now is yet more GAS, lol....

I'd strongly suggest you try both guitars and just go with whichever one you prefer.

well I've not tried either guitar, but if I was ordering one off the net without trying, I'd go with the P90's. But, as I said, I am a fan of P90s (I would have got an Epi LP with them had my mate not been selling his humbuckered Epi LP when I was about to buy, couldn't ask for a better price, so I went with his guitar).
