I have a crap tele knockoff that I can't intonate, another thread, and a largish sum of 4/4 cherry boards. I was thinking. 1 crap Tele that has a good neck and sounds nice plus 1 largish stash of cherry boards...... front back each of these is 3/4" and need to be joined. I may go with the 1 1/2" as final thickness or I may add in a 1/4" between them. Need to measure the switch on my crap guitar. Plan is to go traditional as I already have a tort pick guard to use. Only part I need to buy is a control plate but may make that out of a scrap of walnut I have.
