So, MIM Fender Blacktop Telecaster Baritone. Took the guard off, and there's this strange thumbsized indentation under around where the middle pickup is. Just curious why it would be there. I'd think that Fender wouldn't cut a hole if it didn't serve some purpose, even if it's only a manufacturing reason.

These are just lousy cell pics, but hopefully you can get the idea.

Anyone know why it's there?

That's a tone secret a lot of tele players miss. It gives it just the slightest amount of semi hollow tone for a very sweet sweet sound. Roy, Danny, Beck...they NEVER revealed this to anybody because it is very easy to copy. I'm surprised this thread has not been removed.

Looking at those pics gave me a flashback to Penthouse magazine, circa 1981....same style, but different kind of porn!
