Does this still count as a T Style?

    Oh I know. This is a parts guitar. I really love the guitar. It feels and plays a lot better than the Squier. Not sure what the neck is. But not bad either

    As long as you dig it, that's all that matters! Great looking Offset T! Congrats.

    No, it's not a T-style in my opinion.

    I dig it. A Jaguar middle pickup would be cool in one of those.

    Most important part of a tele is the bolt on neck and bridge. Looks tele to me!

    Although it is an offset shape, everything else draws on the T-style aesthetic...it's a T.

    Most importantly how much does it weigh. Also how does it sound.
    Looks good.

    Yes. It has every element of a Tele, except for the offset body. I dig it.

    In about a month when my cnc comes. First build will be a tele body with a tele neck. Strat hardware and loaded Hendrix
    pickguard. Don't think it will be a Tele. But it is what i want.

    man it’s hard to gauge. I have 3 T styles (2 fender telecasters. And a T build) its on par weight wise. And sounds good actually. There’s a story to that guitar. I don’t know it all. But it’s a “Tom” guitar.

    Tom is a older gentleman who used to run a local pawnshop. (Ironically owned by the guy who owns the music store here) they were right next to each other. Anyway. Tom always had a habit of Frankenstein-ing parts into pretty badass guitars. Always had some kind of oddball build. (Right up my alley.) anyway. Pawnshop closed as James focused more and more on the music shop. Tom moved to Tulsa and works for some big corporate shop in the area. He occasionally comes back and sells James some guitars. This is one. When I asked about it. James just had to say “Tom brought that”.

    no idea what the pickups are. But sound on par to a Squier classic vibe I had a while back. So not bad at all. I may try to make a deal. All around better than the Squier paranormal line. And looks 100xs better.

    I played a paranormal Squier Tele the other day in the shop. It’s a fun guitar.

    If I were to get it. I think I may actually get a Strat or jag neck for it. Just to make it a little more crossover and unique.

    It's an Offset-T-Style

    I submit that a telecaster is defined by the body shape alone; Not the pickups nor the neck. If not Fender, than it is a Tele style if it has that body.
    Here is a Christmas present for the kitchen. Fender offers a Strat style chopping board too.
