Whenever I look at a nice Tele, I think: "Fender screwed this up artistically, the great curve of the body doesn't flow" It's the flow of the upper bout to the lower bout through the neck pocket that is wonky. Two little extra pieces are there and kill the beautiful curve. Anyone else ever think that? I've tried to show it here but my artistic skills are minimal. Normal Tele LEFT, Improved shape RIGHT: I stretched the upper bout longer in the right pic accidentally, it could be the same radius as the left and still flow together.
