The Raphsby tele
#1
I am going to make this, Bolt on mahogany/maple neck with 27ish frets, hoop pine body and hard tail. I want to do it in a seafoam green or light blue.  Gibson style headstock and high output direct mounted pups to boot. Cheers

What do you guys think?

Interesting take on a "tele". I kind of like it.

Evo's?

I think you ought to consider a B-Bender and Keith tuner. For those power metal pedal steel licks. huge grin

Tele designation requires tele bridge, at the very least

No one told GE Smith that.  huge grin

He whacked his bridge like Lorena Bobbitt whacked John.

That's still technically a tele bridge in my eyes.

Those 3 barrel bridges are a pile of shit. I was thinking gotoh hardtail.

This will have a flat fingerboard and 27 frets it wont matter what bridge it uses.

A Babicz Tele humbucker bridge will make you very happy ! I wouldn't lie to you and ask Bruce he will back me up on this one. It always matters what hardware you put on a guitar the better it is built the better the guitar will play and sound.

Yeah i don't use shit hardware anyway. But  i seek out affordable good hardware like gotoh or schaller. I don't have the spare money to throw on a babicz. So jsut a plain old gotoh hardtail will do.
