I have been playing with the idea of buying a tele kit just for the body, flipping it on its front, and then treating the wood so I can use it as a cheese board.
A bit expensive just to throw the majority of the kit away, but I think it would make a nice gift.
I know, but that's a cutting board, not a cheese board, cut into the shape of a guitar body, which is stupid.
Also with a huge neck - really quite unique to the Nocaster I believe. You know when you're playing it. Then when you switch back to your other electrics the necks feel tinyAbsolutely. Would love a Nocaster. I know, it's just a Tele with the transfer trimmed, but still...
Actually, it's not.Absolutely. Would love a Nocaster. I know, it's just a Tele with the transfer trimmed, but still...
Interestingly, mine (2008 NOS) was factory setup with standard tele wiring. An additional 3-way switch, with vintage spec wiring, is in a sealed bag in the case compartment.Actually, it's not.
Besides the ultra fat neck, there's a proprietary wiring scheme:
the 3 switch positions are 'deep bass' (extreme treble rolloff),
blend of neck and bridge (controlled by the tone knob in the
middle switch position),
and 'no-load' bridge (tone knob disabled in the rearmost switch
That's not the usual Tele setup of neck/both/bridge.
