Hello. New guy here. I've owned Strats and Teles with both alder and ash bodies. Currently, nothing with an ash body. Rosewood, Pau Ferro, and maple necks. I'm no expert, but any differences that I could tell may or may not be because of what the body is made of. Does it really matter? Can you tell the difference? I'm thinking of selling a guitar or two to help fund the purchase of a new American Tele. I want it to be the last one that I ever buy. Will probably have to order online due to Covid-19, so can't play before buying. I'm considering either the American Professional Tele (two single coils, ash) or the American Performer Tele that has the humbucker in the neck position (alder). I'm just thinking out loud. Maybe the body wood is not such a big deal and I should put more thought into pickup configuration, neck profile, fingerboard material? Part of what has me thinking of this is Fender's announcement that ash will be used on a limited basis going forward...not on standard models. Thanks for listening.
