I’m building an acoustic-styled Tele now. Guts, back, and neck from African mahogany. Top is European spruce. Body will be a little thicker than a normal Tele at close to 2”. If it goes according to plan, as I’ve never bound a guitar before, it’ll have herringbone purfling and an old school 45 backstrip. Haven’t decided on pickup configuration yet. Neck is almost done, with an angled Martin-esque headstock, volute, and will have carbon reinforcements along with the truss rod. Ebony fingerboard. The broad question I have... do f-holes make any difference in electrics, or is it purely aesthetics? Then aesthetically, would purfling and f-holes be too busy? Decisions, decisions... open to any and all useful input. Thanks!
