    I've come across a nice looking local partscaster Strat that has an N9 American Traditional series Tele neck. Not much info out there on this model other than a lot of uninformed folks slagging the series without knowing much about it. Anyone have an definitive info? Seems to be yet another joint Corona/Ensenada venture. The guitar has the Tele neck, Warmoth body and SD Everything Axe pickups for $400. Not sure if the neck is properly set as it looks like there's a gap between the neck and body.

    Unless you're a "tweaker", I'd walk away.

    With original parts, you know they'll work together; with Partscaster's, well, you never know.

    Lonn, you make a good point that even those of us who spend too much time trying every model of used Tele in every store we can........

    We couldn't possibly know anything about the guitars we choose not to buy.

    Anyway, the mismatch of the T style heel and the S style neck pocket is surely something you've encountered 100 times. You know how this works.

    If you can talk them down to 300 you could resell the parts for a profit.

    Tele necks cost that much and you get a free loaded body. Just check to see if there's major fret wear.

    Play it and if it all works and speaks to you then the rest does no matter.
