    That Tele you're looking at has more of a Jeff Beck Esquire wear pattern thing going on. Different folks play differently and sweat differently. Some are part alien xenomorph and others seem not to do much more than take the gloss shine off. As a result the Custom Shop offer all sorts of wear patterns but if it plays well and sounds good you're most of the way there. By way of comparison here's a few I've owned over the years:

    I like the relic on that second pic, black tele.

    That neck profile is the same as the one on the AO 50s tele. I thought you liked that neck?

    My neck is bigger than .880 to .990. Mine is .930 to 1.01. And with the smaller shoulders on mine than a Nocaster it barely meets the minimum of the chunky feel I like. I prefer a fuller feeling neck. .880 at the first is too small for my liking.
