Short version... Stopped by the lumber yard and picked up lumber for my first Tele body, brain cramp or old age...I got 1.5" stock instead of 1.75". It's poplar, since I planned to paint the body. Can I use it anyway? I'm not concerned about authentic reproduction, it's a non standard shape. I suspect the blade switch is the likely problem area. Would it fit into a 1.25" deep control cavity? My options as I see them: 1) Go buy different wood for the body (Pay attention this time) 2) Put a 1/4" cap on it. (Again painted body, no point in buying pretty wood for the top.) 3) Use it with a different switch. Appreciate any help people can give. Q.
