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

    Actually, it does. The pickups are EMG selects, cheap pickups, but they sound pretty decent. Neck has a good feel as well. Placement of the knobs is my only real complaint.

    It looks good.
    The upper cutaway doesn't make too much sense, as it does not look like giving the thumb easier access/grip.
    But then: if it sounds good, who cares if it is a Tele or a mixture of several guitar-dna?
    It's pretty unique.

    I guess it doesn't matter... I was just trying to figure out if I have 5, or if I have 6 T-types. I would love to talk to the dude who put it together, but I have no clue who it might have been. Curious as to what he was going for.

    Not a tele. The only thing it shares is the headstock. I don't call my 72 deluxe ri a strat.

    The lower horn also makes me think tele. First time I saw it (from the back) my first impression was tele, just based off the headstock and lower horn. Then I saw the rest.

    Reminds me of this one time I stayed late at a bar....

    Maybe a unique moniker... like "Picassocaster" or "Splatocaster"?

    If it was a dog, I'd be calling it a Heinz .....
