    Will the Custom Shop make a Telecaster with the Clapton Neck yet have the
    headstock of the Telecaster?

    I "think" the Custom Shop will make whatever you're willing to pay for. By Clapton Neck I assume you mean the "V" profile of a Clapton Strat? I would think that's easy to get with a Tele headstock.
    If they won't.....Warmoth certainly will.

    Have you looked at a Baja neck? Slightly larger than a Clapton but very similar contour.

    I've had 3 Clapton Stratocasters and I really like the Soft V Neck
    and the Vintage Frets. It's my favorite neck on Fender guitars so
    I was thinking why not on a Telecaster from the Custom Shop.
    That was I could get any Color that I like.

    I have seen a CS reissue of Clapton 60 ies Tele he played with Blind Faith. It seems to be famous Blackie Strat neck on a Tele Body.
