I'm thinking of building a tele with the neck I got from Eric. Since my Mex Tele already covers my classic Tele bases (with Lollar Vintage T's and a Wilkinson ashtray bridge), I'm thinking of something different.

I was messing around with USA Guitar's app and here's the configuration that speaks to me. It's kinda old school meets new. I love the looks of the 52 RI so I combined it with a hotter Tele bridge pup, a Strat middle, and a P90 neck. I'll likely order the body and then build 'er up.

Should be fun!

Shell pink with the mint guard would be beyond awesome!

That thought crossed my mind. I did model one up but, again, this one 'spoke to me'.

Edited to add: The shell pink looked better with a rosewood fretboard.

Sure - if you're man enough to play a pink Tele! Personally, I'd prefer Burgundy Mist...

Mike, I have the burgundy/maroon base covered with my other Tele.

FWIW, I showed the pink to the wife and she said, "Who are you? A Powerpuff Girl? It's not you." lol!

I’ve been toying with the idea of a burgundy guitar with cream plastics.

I like the shell pink and it would look uber cool if it had white binding

I like the concept, but Daphne Blue is the color for me.

You want something different? Stick a right-handed bridge on that.

It will give you mids-forward, growlier highs from the bridge pickup than you get from a typical Tele.

I’ve got it hung next to a standard Configured Tele and it looks like, between the two of them, they are smiling.
