bah, a real man doesn't need a pointy headstock and a bridge humbucker to feel secure about his sexuality.

thats why the true alpha-male telecaster connoisseur would play one of these:

As a guitar shape, if a strat is a hot bird, a les paul a wise grandfathery type, an explorer a 6 foot 5 17 stone prop foward, it sort of puts me in mind of a senile old drunk that cant stop shiteting himself.

Or something someone made from a table and bits of a robin reliant.

I hate teles. And I'm not gonna be silent any more!

No no no, the Tele is the wise grandfathery type. 

The Les Paul is a fat curly-haired middle-aged bloke like Gary Rossington or Warren Haynes.  :P

 :D "Build" is far too grand a term, I just bought a lot of parts, modified them a little bit here and there and put them all together.  That's the two solidbodies, the Thinline is pretty much stock.
