But … how does it sound ?
I guess I'm weird.
I'm definitely not a traditionalist, evidenced by my herd of instruments, but...
I prefer to true slab on guitars...I own a Strat, a G&L and a Telecaster Deluxe, all of which have varying degrees of body contours or belly cuts, but…
I prefer the regular ol' Telecaster body cutting into my ribs, pelvis and forearm, just like that pair of boots that pinch in all the right places, making you feel a touch more rough and tough and ready to take on the world.
That's probably why, at this stage in my life, I prefer Telecasters, Les Paul Juniors and Flying Vs over everything else--the slight discomfort of the body edge cutting into my body eggs me on to play more fearlessly and ferociously.
Place me in the blasphemers camp
I keep a capo clipped to the headstock to hold a slide. More attitude than talent here. Yay or nay?
Ok calling gulag
That body has a huge defect, its warped!!
I'm down with it as long as you play onstage with a lit cigarette hanging out of the end of the slide.
The Richie Kotzen Tele is one of the few contour cut tele's I don't mind. The cut is subtle. Unfortunately for me I don't like the flame top or finish. I was tempted to buy one recently and paint it but the weight was too heavy as was the cost at $500 bucks unloaded.
I like my guitars like I like my ladies
Just ta spite ya
And it has a tummy cut too!
I would agrre for tele cut if it was symmetrical , smaller cut on the right side from front. Or maybe body shape. However i really dig archtops with tom bridges
I just roll the edge a bit to soften the curve without going as drastic as a strat round off....I don't worry about a gut cut....
saves a crease in your forearm....
Middle fingers in the air 'cause I just don't care.
Mine sounds effing killer and, even though it hasn't suffered much live playing yet, it's definitely much more comfortable when things get aggressive.
Gotta say it, yuk! Nothing to do with ‘not on a Tele’, just looks a naff shape for a guitar.
Looks nothing like a Yeti, far too ugly to be an abomination.
Is that the same guitar?
Yes, pre fabric finish
It may look damned stupid but, it feels so good!!
Not a good look IMO.
But "blasphemy" it is not.
