Looking at adding a custom shop tele....
Probably will be my last guitar.....
I have a prs cu22, a selectvstrat and a tom anderson cobra s woth p90s. Im missing the rounder (compared to bridge p90) bridge pu sound.
Im 100% i want an ash body and maple neck, but after that.....neck will likely be roasted flame or birds eye... im a suckee for that but on an ash body and particularly a tele, a fm or quilt top is wrong, so will get the figuring in the neck.
Neck profile?? Strat is slim c ( now modeen c) and prs with wide thin...but over time tasts change and i prefee the deeper anderson neck now. Dont think id like a U, and think oval C/60s c would be good. D OR SOFT V though ????
Pus...i know i dont want the twisted tele but beyong that?? Not adverse to looking at TV jones in neck or even both positions if it suits.
Colour?? Needs to show off any wood grain, and do i want traditionsl butterscotch or something 99% of cs teles arnt.
Fret profile ??? No clue here really.
This is the start of the journey really, and i expect it to take months to fine tune what i need/want and then to find one, or even custom order one if need be.
So, for those tele hounds out there what are the suggestions?
The aim will be for the tom anderson and tele to be my main guitars with the strat just for the quack and prs for more focussed heavy driven stuff, and both for home use/recording only really.
