I'm starting a new Tele build and I've received some interesting offers for Tele body's. I also always watch ebay for stuff especially old Peavey guitars. I have had really good luck with my Peavey Predator strat partscaster (poplar body). It's definitely light weight, but it's VERY resonant plugged in or unplugged and just sounds great with the Dimazrio area's in there now. It seems I can get a Peavey Reactor for a decent price which I understand is just about the exact same guitar as the Predator in T style. The body is also poplar and I'm wondering if this might not be a good wood for a Tele. I do really like the thick, heavier dense wood on my Fender James Burton Tele (not sure if it's Alder or Ash or Swamp Ash) but it's woody feeling AND woody sounding. The offers on bodies for my project have been MIJ guitars, not sure of the wood type. Anyone know what they would probably have been made out of? Thoughts?
