    It has the tummy cut so it probably has a heel contour as well \m/ The maple fretboard one is orgasmic.

    Never been a Tele fan. Don't hate them, just don't like them. Kinda funny, too. File it under "least metal guitar" whilst appearing onstage with Slipknot.

    LOL

    emgs are not meant to be in a tele. i personally don't think tele's look good outside of the traditional layout except maybe the custom.
