Spalted maple? That wood is beautiful.
I've shown this so many times you guys may be tired of it.....but this is a partscaster I assembled in 2019. Paulownia body, Warmoth conversion neck (24 3/4" scale, 1 11/16" nut width, Fatback profile) with Bootstrap Pickups, (Pretzel in bridge, Palo Duro neck) with a reverse slant bridge pickup. Simply perfect for me.Do you have a favorite?

What does a Tele with 3 pickups sound like? Are they more like Strats than a Tele?
Depends on the pickups. In some cases it sounds like neither! I have a Nashville type that has Cavalier Nashville bridge and Fat Lion King neck with a Bootstrap Sun City middle. It's wound to about 7.4K to keep up with the bridge and middle, so it's hotter than a typical Strat, but still does the "quack" in the in between positions. Vintage Strat pickups are usually below 6.0K. Now I need to post a photo to go along with my description. The tele in my avatar has Fender Nocasters in it and sounds glorious. Both are "partscasters" and I'd never part with either of them!What does a Tele with 3 pickups sound like? Are they more like Strats than a Tele?
