Heres a question. I am doing a tele/lp type build. I have a maple bolt on neck with a rosewood fingerboard. I also have a 2" thick piece of northern ash. My plan was to cut the top 1/2" or so off and do a shallow lp carved top, then pretty much hollow out most of the body to lighten it up. I was going to use a hardtail strat style bridge and a tele bridge pickup with a p90 in the neck. My question is that for LP style guitars they have a neck angle planed on the top as wellas pickup plane angle, as they use bridges that require this, but I am using a strat hardtail bridge so no neck angle needed. If I do not plane down the top like an LP the top then the body would be quite thick at the base of the neck.
So here is the question if I planed a pickup angle from behind the bridge to the front of the body to get closer to a lp thickness and then routed the neck route parallel with the angle planed on the top would it end up like a fender style guitar with no neck angle. I think it woulld? Does this make sense?? Something like this
