    I should clarify, T-Armonds. Dynas squeal like pigs with any drive even at living room volumes in my experience. With T-Armonds, however, I was able to use them through a cranked Vox with an overdrive pedal and never had unwanted feedback.

    Honestly, play a bunch of guitars and go from there. In my opinion you’ll likely sound the best and get whatever tone you want when you’re playing something you are totally comfortable on. I prefer strats above everything else because I feel like, for me, they are the most versatile as far as the kind of music I like to play and listen to.

    Gretsch G2622 P-90 $599 2.jpg For 2021, Gretsch has expanded their line of models with P-90s. Gretsch (gretschguitars.com)

    I love P-90s and love this G2622T-P90 I bought last year. Special Edition color, now sold out. Doesn't get the Tele twang exactly but growls, sounds fantastic and very versatile. Basically an ES-335 with P-90s.

    This! Don't spend this kind of money unless you really want it.

    Welcome to my world!

    if you are leaning towards the P-90, then try some out, Gretsch and Fender have some new models with P-90s. Check out the Fender Noventa series and the new Gretsches. you can’t go wrong, just pick the color you like best!

    LOL. Good one.

    Actually I've been really liking the tone I'm getting out of my Excelsior with them.

    Playing at lower volumes anymore, and maybe that 15" makes the difference.

    Cheap dang amp in every way, but it just sounds so good to me, especially with an outboard reverb tank.

    Sounds to me like you need a telecaster with a P90 in the neck position.
