Sorry, But that relicing is a fad. Look at pictures from 15-20 years ago, there where none of these around. Hell even today Micawber still looks quite unscated, And that guitar has been toured extensively, As for poly being uncontrolable, I don't know, it works, it is stable, doesn't get sticky even on a hot stage and unless you tow it through town behind your car in 15 years it'll still look good. What's not to like. But to return to the OP's question, seems to me that you have a problem that will not be fixed with relicing, you need to chamfer the body or get something with a contoured body, like a strat. That is not what a tele is about. If you want a pet that listens and obeys you then you get a dog, It doesn't work to get a cat and try to train it. That's the road to insanity.
