My friend an tech is going to build my dream guitar. I've always wanted a rosewood telecaster but have never been able to find one. He is going to make a 2 piece body from some rosewood he's had for years. The wood is 1 1/2 in thick. What is the normal thickness of a tele body an does it matter? Thanks for any input or suggestions on this project. We will start after Christmas. The only thing I'm pretty sure of at this point is that I will use a 1970 bridge an pick up from another tele I have.
