Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?

Bob,
It's amazing how much different the Tele is from the Strat. The density of the thick Ash body on a Tele creates a distinct sound. I wired the one I built with a four position switch which allows the pickups to be hooked in series as a fourth sound option, although it increases hum, which is always an issue with these. I lined all the cavities with lead sheathing to cut hum down to a minimum.
