    I used a metal neck mounting plate as a shim once and it worked great. I would recommend either a metal plate or wood of the same type of the neck or body for optimal tonal response.

    I am glad the OP got his tele fixed!

    As for women building telecasters? That's been gong on almost since they were invented...;)
