Talking ash/maple teles here. And i'm wondering if the tone of my classic 50's is due to the weight or just the variation of it's particular wood. It's quite heavy at i would say 8 Lbs, and the tone seems rather subdued in the high end unlike you's expect from a tele. I've tried several saddles including 3 brass sets and one steel and a few different pickups. Right now it has a nocaster set. Seems too soft in the high end for a tele unlike others i've had which have all caused me to fight a overly bright tone. Not this one. I suppose i should be happy about that, but i feel it needs more cut and it's not a matter of pickups, pots or treble bleeds so please lets not go there. It's the guitar, the wood. All i wanna know is if anyone who's had a lot of experience with many ash\maple vintage style teles has noted this kind of tone with heavier ones?
