I've got tele bridge thats for humbucker. Want to put a standard single coil tele in it. Bridge itself is wider than standard bridge - try to mount a standard bridge and the routes in the body show. I'm sure this is an issue faced by ten zillion tele owners. The answer is either get a pickup adapter or get a new body. I happen to like the body. In order to fit on the tele bridge plate, additional holes would have to be drilled into a pickup adapter - it would mount with two screws on the side, not the four corners. I've seen a lot of humbucker to tele adapters, most are made of plastic. I've seen one on Reverb thats made of aluminum. So my question - how much tele "snap" would I lose with a plastic adapter? How much would a plastic adapter change the tone? A lot? A teeny bit? None?
