  • telecaster mod

    I was wondering, could I take my fender telecaster and replace the neck with a strat neck, have a floyd rose installed, also have all the electronics scrapped and put 1 emg (ez-h4) passive humbucker in the bridge position but with having the same types of controls as the early telecaster with 1 pickup ??? ( so I could get diffrent tones from the 3 way toggle switch)

    Unless your Tele is a real peezasheet, it's probably be a lot simpler to leave it as is and construct a partsocaster to your rather nightmarish specification.

      The heel on telecasters are straight and the ones on the strats are rounded. I wanted to put a tele neck on my old frankenstrat but it was going to be quite the undertaking.

      But its all made out of wood so anything is possible.

        Anythings possible, but this amount of work would probably be mucho dollar-eros..best bet is find one with those specs you want, or build it from Warmoth parts(again, mucho dollar-eros!)

          as mentioned,
          start with a workable pallet and go from there, anything is possible.
