what can I do to get a Gretsch-o-caster?

I like the sound of a strat/tele; clean, wet, and a big bottom.

But the neck of a Gretsch is where I want to spend my days; super flat and wide and low.

How can I put together a guitar with the Fender single coil sound and that 12" radius neck that I like? It's something about the Gretsch neck; I'm not talking about a Les Paul kind of neck -- maybe the Gretsch is even wider (?).

What would I get with a strat-type single coil in a Gretsch? Unsatisfying?

Thoughts appreciated. Sounds (links to vids) more appreciated.

I think the closest sound to single-coil you can get from a Gretsch guitar is by using TV Jones T-Armond pickup.

Just custom order a neck. Take your neck to a luthier and have them shape it for the strat you want. You might like Godin electrics as well. Excellent guitars
