If it is a parts caster what does it matter? Just saying. Unless you got skinned for a lot of $. I built a parts caster with a body and neck that I custom ordered built to my specs from a Fender licensed parts manufacturer called Musikraft in New Jersey. I put hand wound (again to my specs.) Lindy Fralin pups in it with Callaham hard ware including control plate. It sounds great and plays great which is why I built it out of custom ordered parts instead of depending on a mass produced product and adjusting my playing to fit their idea of neck & body specs.. Oh, and I built it to play not to resell or collect for $. IMO if you like the way your new "Tele" plays and sounds that's all that matters.
