I like Tele neck pickups to be mounted into the body, instead of the pickguard.

It just looks like a traditional Tele should look.

I would have thought that body-mounted pickups would give an advantage for transfering vibrations and some such. But having recently entered the world of strats, I'm now convinced you can hear the pick-guard. It flavors the tone in its own way.

so this opens a new market of toneful pickguards?

Im going to be selling some vintage mahogany "extra tone packed in" pickguards soon lol...

Maybe... To me, it's sort of like switching picks. You know how different picks bring out different tone? I'm sure Fender CS and upscale builders keep the pickguard in mind.
