Do you guys know of any guitars that sound very similar to teles but dont have that painful body shape?

Well, I'm very skinny and bony and the tele always finds a way to bang against my hips or when i jump it hits the bottom of my rib cage.

Depending on your playing style and how low you sling them, Telecasters can be murderous on wrists.

The answer is: TELECASTER.
I don't think there's a guitar with a tone and sound similar to the Tele. Well, the Mustang has a great variety of pickups' combinations.

You can try a "TELEMASTER", an hybrid guitar.

maybe you guys are telecastering wrong. never felt mine was uncomfortable. if I wasn't broke and didn't get happy with a soldering iron I'd be playing that shit right now. love slab bodies. and the Tele necks are the best.

Gibson Melody Maker, though it has sharp body edges too. If you want some twangy sound you can try modern Danelectro replicas with lipsticks. If you want more barking sound especially overdriven try Juniors with p90. I think the area between lipsticks and p90's is occupied by mini himbuckers, try some guitar with them, maybe cheap Epiphone Wilshire(not really great pickups though) or more expensive Gibson SG/Firebird/Les Paul 70's tribute.
