    I'd start with a Tele pup at the bridge to fill that hole.

    If it's not too late to play, I've got three teles.

    First, my MIM thinline '69 tele reissue:

    Squier Affinity BSB tele:

    And finally, my partscaster tele in a poor man's blue sparkle finish:

    Have posted elsewhere, and this finish with its matching headstock certainly has its detractors, but I sure do loves me my Green Machine...

    I generally dislike this kind of color on a guitar--but I think it totally works for this one. :)

    Nuthin’ wrong with the look of this one.
    I love a matching headstock on a Fender.
     
  7. Of course . . . and it is a true Tele hollow body - with a curly maple neck ?
    Who knew ?

    Half of the Telly-tone lives in the neck thickness, the neck joint and the body wood.

    Agreed, though would trade the back binding for a waist cut. Same for a LP...

  13. This Telecaster (from pg. 1, @englishman) could make a "light" oar when up that creek, Dave . . .

    Makes them uncomfortable for me to play though, the square edge rubs my forearm raw.

    They're more comfy for me also with the belly cut :D
    For that reason I prefer the modern Tele's

    I forgot I still have this one, it has the belly cut and the arm contour. Really comfy!

    Here's mine:
    1. Snakehead replica with pine body, aged hardware, neck heel truss rod adjuster, brass nut, pickguard made from an old LP, and SD Broadcaster pickup.

    2. Farida CT-29 body with Squier Tele Deluxe big Strat headstock neck and GFS Lil Puncher XL pickups. Don't know the story on the body, but it never got as far as having strap button holes drilled.

    Waiting for strings and strap buttons, but this is what I've got so far.
