Already having a nice compliment of "typical" Teles and Strats... I've been exploring some relatively uncommon variations - just for the fun of it. A month ago I wondered what a Tele BRIDGE pickup would be like in the neck position... and in the middle position! That led me to acquiring a scarce copy of Fender's Triple Tele. Turns out, I love the Triple Tele tones! And, I've upgraded the pickups & switch plate/switch knob. I also swapped the maple neck for rosewood. So THEN... that led me to wondering what a Triple Tele in a Strat body would be like? And I set-out to find out. Today, I found out! And I LOVE it! Sounds very much like the Triple Tele sounds, but with the feel and attributes of a Strat body - and perhaps a tiny bit of that Strat sparkle tone. The body came from Stratosphere - it's a 2019 Fender Player "Plus Top" Strat, routed HSH. Alder with a flamed-maple cap, aged cherry burst finish. The neck is a 2018 Fender '60s Classic Player Strat neck. It's fantastic how nice the Fender products are coming out of the Ensenada plant. And they're priced well. I wired the 5-way switch so that the neck and bridge pickups could be combined (like a Tele). It's got a full, rich, bright, sparkly tone in that position. Definitely sounds quite Tele-ish, not like a Strat. At present, I'm running Fender CS Nocaster bridge pickups (7.0k) in both the neck and bridge positions, with a Fender CS Broadcaster bridge pickup (7.3k) in the middle position. Volume pot is CTS 480k, with a CTS No-Load tone pot, and .022uF Orange drop cap. I have some "boutique" Tele BRIDGE pickups inbound, which will kick things up a notch from the Fender pickups. Sort of a Tele, for a Strat lover? Or, could be a Strat, for a Tele lover? In any event - it's a unique instrument that plays great and sounds great. Very pleasing, FUN project!
