Strap button position

March 4th, 2004, 05:38 PM
Hi Guys,
About to assemble my first partscaster (waiting impatiently for the nitro to harden so I can do the sand and polish on the body)
Anyhows, I have no other tele available to measure so is there a standard measurement to the strap button (from the side of the neck?)
Can someone measure this for me please?

I generally just eyeball them, as I'm sure was done in the past.

my eyeballs are not really calibrated for teles as this is my first.
Going by pics they seem to be mounted a bit back towards the neck from the peak of the Horn?

Yeah. Come in to about the spot that the curve kind of stops and the flat part starts. That general area should be fine.

I do measure to get it in the center of the body, though....

All the above & just use a 3 finger distance to the button from the neck
as a general rule.
