    I am a big fan of 12-fret to the body acoustic guitars, particularly for blues slide, and folk. I also love playing slide on telecaster guitars. So...has anybody ever combined both of these aspects into one?

    Has anybody ever made a 12-fret to the body telecaster???

    I always thought the sound of a 12-fret guitar had to do with the acoustics of that geometry. On a solid body guitar, not so much.

    Seems counterintuitive to me, but if you want one, go ahead and build one.
    Personally, one of the greatest joys of a Tele is the great upper fret access.
    Clearly your results may vary.
