ive always liked the feel of a neck, and i think it looks amazing. my only prob is i dont like single coils. would it be murder to replace them with some humbuckers?would it still sound like a tele, cept with a harder sound?
Hey, some custom Teles come with a dual humbucker setup, e.g., the Custom Telecaster FMT HH. These have a coil-tap so you can switch back to single-coil if you want.

I haven't played an ordinary Tele enough to be able to tell if the single coil is sufficiently similar to the classic Tele sound, but the humbuckers on my custom Tele make for a nice fat sound, more like a Les Paul, if you want that option.
