    Yep. There's people who solved tele balance issues by adding an extension.

    I thought of adding a hook to the other end and hanging a bunch of fishing weights to it

    You don't need to do that, many strap buttons will fit under the neck screws. The one below the treble strings provides even better balance if more is needed.

    I was surprised. I used to cork sniff the whole tone wood thing. Took it to GC. Sounded and played better than a mim tele, was comparable to sound but defined not the feel of an American one. For me at least, the tone wood thing has been busted with my own ears as well as the 2 employees there that played it.
