Here's the deal. My #1 is my Gibson LP. I also have a Strat. I have flirted with Teles throughout the years as well. I have a wild hair and thought i would seek TDPRI counsel. I love the neck on my Strat but i am not loving all aspects of it. I like the contours and i like the neck pup. The middle pup. Meh. The bridge pup... so unlikeable that i swapped it for a humbucker to give me something familiar to my LP. The bridge is OK now. I kind of like the in between positions but not as much as the neck pup alone. Now, i love the Tele bridge pup. I love the way a tele feels on my picking hand. Unfortunately the non-contoured body hits my ribs in a terrible way that makes the tele very uncomfortable. I like the simplicity of an esquire and how it is a great contrast to my LP. Soooo, what are thoughts on finding a Tele body with belly and possibly forearm contours that will fit my Strat neck? I could go the Esquire route with the Strat neck and the comfort contours or i could do the above and include my Strat neck pup. Any suggestions on where to get the body? Warmoth can do what i want but they are pricey. Thanks for reading my long winded post.
