Hopefully this is not an evil post... I played Fenders for years and years - Strats and Tele's. For a long time my Partscaster was my favorite guitar - but as I aged I guess, my ear changed. But I still like the playability of the Tele - in particular I love Fender necks (with the standard 9.5 radius). So how do I build a Tele that sounds like a Les? What makes the difference? A Strat with humbuckers still sounds like a Strat and a Tele still sounds like a Tele. Could I do it with a Strat? Is it the bridge? The wood? The scale length (I have trouble believing this one)?
