    Good luck getting a 1 3/4" or wider width nut on any Fender Tele or Strat without being SERIOUSLY depantsed by the Custom Shop.

    From the web:
    "Fender used to use letter designations, "A", "B", "C" and "D". These were stamped on the end of the necks from the early 1960s to about 1973 and refer to the neck width at the nut. Here's what they represented:
    - A = 1½"
    - B = 1⅝"
    - C = 1¾"
    - D = 1⅞"
    In general, the current production necks have a B nut width; The American Standard is slightly wider, somewhere in between the B and C measurements at around 11116"."
    I've seen that A, B, C, D comment many times but it offers up false hopes!

    My T-style has a 1 3/4" nut and I kept my pants on! Because it's a MIA G&L and you get to choose the neck profile.

    Or you can go Warmoth or USACG. Wait for a sale neck or get an unfinished neck and finish it yourself.

    I have an MIM Strat also, and I agree about the price; a student gave it to me for free.

    I'm doing a show for the next two months, and on the guitar book they have 'Telecaster' written on it.

    WLAJ, enjoy the experience and make sure you try many Teles until you find 'The One'.
    I'll do just that. I am PRAYING that the neck will feel great in my hand.

    Speaking of tele necks, are they any different in feel when compared to the Stratocaster?
    Or do they have a different contour so to speak?

    "My T-style has a 1 3/4" nut and I kept my pants on! Because it's a MIA G&L and you get to choose the neck profile."

    True about the G&L.

    I believe the #4 neck is a 1 3/4... and the up charge is about 25% compared to a Fender neck upcharge.

    Were I to buy another "Tele" it would be a G&L..

    Because I fingerpick, nut width and string spacing are critical.

    You live you learn. My tele knowledge is tremendously shallow but thankfully it's looking up now.

    G&L is very diggble.

    Loaded? You could buy a Telecaster, say a MIM or CV (new or used), then sell the original neck and swap on your wider one.

    What would be the best value-for-money Telecaster Fender in the price range: 800-1500$?

  19. #518

    User Info Menu

    With $1500 you could probably build a Tele out of Fender licensed parts and other high quality parts that would be on par with a Tele built by a boutique builder that would sell for over $3000. Custom made to your specs. The downside is that you may be waiting a while to get a custom body and/or custom neck.

    I wanted to do a country album so obviously I needed a tele. I went to the big music store here and literally played every tele they had. Didn't like any of them. From the new Squier's on up to the whatever anniversary $3500 jobbie.

    Saw the blue punched out one hanging on the wall in the rental department. A salesman who knows me well tried to talk me out of it. Said it was junk. I played it and bought it.
    $120 with a hardshell and a pack of strings.

    I did that country album and I love this shitbox tele.

    Sounds like this.

    I am going to try out an ESP LTD TE-202. The one I am looking at is the flat black. I usually eschew black guitars because of my borderline OCD hatred of fingerprints, (plus I prefer the look of sunburst) but this one is at a super good price.

    I am also not a fan of factory relics but the ESP LTD Strat I have is a really great guitar and the relic is not bad. The neck feels fantastic! If this feels as good as the strat, I may upgrade the electronics and pickups, depending on how the original ones turn out.

    Here's a representation of one:

    I would go for a Classic Player Baja 50s telecaster instead. USA new price is $800 for a Baja tele (849 euros Thomann price). Similar specs to the Highway One Texas tele and a fabulous fat neck. Or you could go for the Classic Player Baja 60s tele if you like a 60s style C-shape neck with rosewood fingerboard.

    Ed responds himself to the question of recognition by Fender with a signature model, noting. "They wouldn't bother with a few people playing jazz." While that may change eventually, IMO he's right.
