    When the forum is down for a couple of days and you come back to this...

    ...you just understand how much you missed it...

    Thanks for making my day brighter

    I seem to recall, maybe a couple or three years ago, there was a complete range of Teles with contour bodies. Divided opinion, like these things do. Did I imagine it?

    This is so subtle it's barely visible but makes all the difference.

    Except for my wife. I will tell her that you said she is mixed up. Should go over well.

    I definitely prefer the shape of a strat but I like how the volume knob isn’t in the way on a tele. I have a few of each and a warmoth contoured tele for something in between.
