So, I put together a parts telecaster. It doesn't look like the attachments anymore, but only because the humbucker in the neck is now uncovered. And zebra. My problem is this - I come from strats, and I want to carve the forearm contour/belly cut into the guitar to make it more comfortable. The problem is, I don't know if I should do this. The guitar is fine as is, and maybe I'm just being a little baby about it. I dunno. But my strat is effortless to play - really comfortable and sounds great to boot. Is this a good idea? Terrible mistake? Should I just leave it as is? I'm really tempted to get out the files and carve (very carefully) a series of contours to make it more comfortable.
