In the new band I've just joined the other guitarist is using an SG or a strat, so in the interests of having a different sound to him I've had to dust off the Epi LP. WHat I'd like to do is put together a partscaster tele in order to get a les paul-ish sound but still retain the tele shape & scale length, and use a classic 50's neck (my fave guitar neck of all time)... I'm thinking maple capped mahogany body, burstbuckers or SD alnico II humbuckers for pickups. I'm thinking a humbucker bridge plate similar to the John 5 tele. Any thoughts on this build - esp. the bridge, would I get closer to a LP sound with a tune-a-matic bridge?? Cheers!!
