    I just finished putting an upper contour (similar to a strat) in the back of my Tele blank and I'm quite pleased with how it looks and feels. I'm wondering if anyone has put one in the lower part of the body as well and how it turned out.

    Well, It might make the guitar more comfortable to play in certain positions if done right...it would lower the body weight some......it would add a unique quality to a build.....Are you answering a question with a question? No disrespect, but I'm trying to find out if anyone has done it not trying to justify it.

    Well ...... if you planning on a typical Telecaster control plate, you couldn't do much of a contour without entering the control cavity.
