    StVincent with a different neck?

    Hi Guys

    what do you think of a st vincent style guitar but with a tele ( kinda thin) style neck??
    I was looking to do it with the EX style body but i dont think it would work as the neck has the angled back look and quite long banana style head.

    it would look totally groovy with the Explorers bridge

    or would it be easier to just ask for a tele style neck to fit the ex style body and i can cut the body back to kinda match the st Vincent??

    Maybe also have a look at MaxAxe's Stealth Caster - you could use some of the offcuts from the EX to get closer to the St Vincent style if you're up for a bit more of a challenge....

    While you're there, you may want to look at the Pinball Wizard to see how far you can push guitar building...

    You could ask for an EX with a paddle headstock so you can cut it into a Tele shape.

    I kind of think only Annie can get away with playing one of those. They look weird when anyone else has one. Very good guitars I understand though. Brett Kingman quite likes his.

    Best bet would be to check with Adam - email adamboyle at pitbullguitars dot com - would be able to provide the best feedback.

    thanks Stan, you gave me your 5thousand and oneth post.
