Aside from the headstock, the "stratified" version looks much better, although asymmetric top and bottom horns would be a bonus! ;)

Roo
Anyone who read the 12 pages that is this hilarious thread would know Roo couldn't possibly like that tele with its tele top horn(mound?), tele controls, and tele pickguard.  My Paint skills are only good enough to copy the bottom horn and paste it where the swollen section of the tele was(asymmetric wins for me too) and about halfway through the process I realized I was trying to make a white and extra stringed version of my SLSMG. :lol:

I know I'm out-numbered here but I've gotta say teles do absolutely nothing for me.  I mean if they would do my taxes for me like their owners seem to be good at I wouldn't mind keeping one around.;)

Keith Richards is good at doing taxes?

Paying them, maybe.

His drugged out rock star image is his disguise.  By day he is Richard Keeferson: Super Accountant!



...Just got done watching Iron Man so I have super heros on my mind.  Anybody else spot Tom Morello's cameo?  He plays a tele so no this is NOT a thread derail! :lol:

He was the first Afghanistani(Afghanistanian?) to get punched by Robert Downey Jr. in the iron suit in the cave.  He might have been in a few more scenes before that but I only just realized it was him when they did a close up of his face before getting smashed into a wall. :lol:

THEN SOME C0CK DECIDES TO FURTHER DESTROY THE EARTH'S BEAUTY BY USING A PIECE OF KOA FOR A TELECASTER???  WHAT IS THIS WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

are you all talking about my wood!!

no, the Warmoth tele.




EDIT: this topic is epic and ridiculous and i hope it never ends because it gets more ridiculous as the pages go on (and thus awesome).

Hey Roo-o... ;)

Fernando, you know very well that I'm not going to click on that OH MY GOD HE COLLECTS TELECASTERS???? What a knob-jockey!

I was thinking about this the other day - how would one go about de-homoifying the telecaster? clearly some people like the sound/feel of the guitars, but they should have to look like ... you know what..., should they? Well, maybe they should. Penance. I said 'penance', read it more carefully.
If only had even 5 minutes to spare, I'd draw out my designs for the 'Roocaster" - a telecaster-ish guitar that has had the really cr@ppy looking bits removed, so that it doesn't make its player look like a sausage-hider.
You've been warned! :)

One-guitar man here, Andy ;) It was deeply satisfying that most people seemed to like my guitar :) I was just waiting for Philly to slag it off when I posted about it (and I think Philly was waiting for that, too!). :D [/smug mode]

 :D I'm far too nice and polite to slag it off, but I was expecting to hate it.  I was very surprised to find I didn't.... not my kind of thing at all, but it does look good.

i was expecting it to offend more peoples sensibilities than it did - partly with it being a little odd to look at but also because i know everyone who likes teles wanted to find something not to like in roo's guitar taste

Think everybody that didn't like the design was very respecfull to it due to you've build it... If it were a Fender, you would see a flood of hate bigger than Roo gives on Teles (just to make fun of him :lol:)
