Hello Tele-Fellas from Germany after a lot of google'ing I'm more and more confused. I bought a used Shiflett Tele Deluxe as a backup for live. The Guitar is great but I don't feel like at home with my Jim Root Tele. After a bit of chating I found out, that Fender uses two different string spacings. :-/ And I'm kinda sure that it's the fact I don't like. All my other guitars have the modern spacing. Did I mention that it isn't that easy to get a conversion hardtail?! Modern Fender Hardtails don't match in terms of mounting & position as I read. The only thing that looks ok to me is the Hipshot Hardtail with modern Spacing. Can anyone confirm that this matches vintage mounting holes and works as a conversion? It's not that easy 'cause in Germany we calculate in metric sizes not inches. So one more issue to confuse me. Hipshot isn't that easy to get in Germany. So I have to order in the States. Would be great to have an alternative. Thanks, Markus.
