Would you consider this a Tele-type? or just some weird mutation.

    I picked this up last December from a local shop. Don't know much about it. Probably home-built. Seems to be a solid (maple?) body. Headstock looks very tele... body is kinda tele-like, but distorted. Should I consider it a Tele-Type or a aberrant affront to guitar-kind?

    You're either real late taking down...or real early putting up...that Christmas tree.

    To me, not Tele type.

    Close enough for me.

    I think it's cool! But I do have two questions, how thick is it? It looks kinda thick to me, and how much does it weigh? How about some sound....it's only fair....

    Behind my beard.
    It's more strat, with Gibson leanings, topped off by a Tele-style headstock.

    Best of all worlds? Looks well made though.

    The lower horn looks tele, but the upper horn is somewhere between a strat and a tele. Lower bout doesn't seem very tele like. It is a string-through body type of bridge, really awkward volume/tone knobs. It's a strange beast, and I wish I knew the story behind it.

    I think it is the cousin to one of my guitars...

    Other than the Tele neck it has nothing else "Tele".

    Two humbuckers, three Les Paul speed knobs with a toggle switch.
    Hard tail Strat bridge with a double cutaway.

    But it looks like a really cool Strat/Paul Hybrid!

    weird mutations aren't "affronts," just weird mutations

    This is much closer to Tele.

    The neck makes it tele-like, but its a double-cutaway - body is more "stratty" imo ... I even get a Wolfgang kind of vibe from it.

    Its a cool-looking hybrid, I'll go w that!

    Looks pretty cool. I could say that it's tele-inspired.

    Looks like they share some DNA.
