I was helping my daughter learn a new song the other day when she commented that she couldn't form good barre chords because her hands are so small. I loaned her my tele, and she no longer had trouble. This got me to thinking that I could build her an acoustic tele style. As I see it, there are two basic approaches: standard guitar style, or hollowed out tele body. The main drawback to the standard approach is designing and constructing the forward section where the sides have some very tight curves. The main drawback to the hollowed body is the reduced resonance from the stiffer sides and back. I'm leaning toward the hollowed body because I can stick in a neck pickup and yet still give the guitar an acoustic feel. I could even throw in a piezo under the saddle. So, what's your take? Straight acoustic or hollowed body?
