Hey guys,

I'm going to get some guitar bodies made up. They'll be something that can fit a standard tele or strat neck.

Instead of going for a straight tele, jazzmaster, strat, super strat shape - are there any guitars that you can think of that are sort of based on these shapes but a bit different? Or something that is just a bit different, but would work well with a bolt-on tele or strat neck.

Here's one of the shapes I've chosen:

I also like this shape, but would do with normal pickups

A firebird with a jazzmaster trem is definitely on my gas list.

I like the Deimel shapes too- kind of a slimmed down non-reverse Firebird.

Reverend shapes?

Some cool old teisco and harmony shapes too

I've looked at the non-reverse firebird/tele's and they look a bit 'off,' so I'll check out the Deimel ones :-)

I 'just about' like the RD's - I'm going to look into them a bit more.

That's shape number two locked in.
