Hi TDPRI- first post. I want to build a parts caster. I don't yet have a tele, but fell in love with a Fender Custom Shop "Relic" Tele. I am not into the relic thing- 5k for a pre aged guitar is not my thing- but this thing was LIGHT! What a great tool to have. I recently built a Warmoth parts guitar, and it is a PLAYER. I'm addicted. I do have to disclose that I will proably put non standard PU's in it (maybe not), and I would like a '52 ish body. So my question for the experts: 1) How light can I make it, but still healthy and stable? 2) What woods are recommended? I would like it to be snappy and responsive but not tinny and unbalanced toward high frquency. 3) Solid or chambered or thinline? I realize thats a HUGE can of worms in these parts- but to keep in line with the weight/tone parameters i have described above. Thanks for any and all advice.
