Anybody have experience or thoughts to share about maple cap Teles? Pros/cons to regular maple necks?

My friend built me a telecaster with a maple capped neck, and I absolutely love it! Plays like a dream and sounds great as well, no issues.

It's not easy to load a modern double-action trussrod into the "skunk" rout of a traditional 1-piece maple neck. Several companies now offering 2-piece maple are also using the modern rod design. Keep an eye on that: they hold relief really well, but they weigh twice as much as a single-action rod.
