Dear forum I have found what's almost my perfect tele --- and I need your help Deciding. It's fiesta red, alder body, texas special pickups, C-shaped neck with 9.5 radius and 1.69" nut width, vintage bridge and tuners. Weight is 7.5lb. All those things are great but..... The difference between the one I found and a dream "perfect tele" would be same as above except: - rather have a "tummy cut" on the body - MUCH prefer 1.65 nut width and "D" neck shape (like the James Burton model). - don't care about body wood but weight has to be 7.0-7.5 lb. You guessed correctly if you spotted that the one I found is the telecaster "special" model. Price is about $800 and change. I cannot afford custom shop prices, and wouldn't pay that much even if I could afford it. What would you do? Should I buy the almost perfect Tele? Is there some way to get the neck I prefer (1.65 nut, 9.5 radius, D-shape) in the aftermarket? Your thoughts appreciated.
