    Ah, I see, and know what you mean.
    a knot in the wood, right?
    I was having a hard time understanding the nut reference. :)

    I got the Stagg Tele...and it's ok for the money. Satin finish on neck feels pretty good. Not a string through body type of design..if that is important to you. The p90 in the neck is decent, and the bridge pickup will get you by...but I am inclined to find a replacement. Tuners seem ok, but also candidate for replacement. When I picked it up at my local shop (Guitar Haven, Indian Harbor Beach FL), the selector switch was bad.. So be warned that the electronics may be sketchy. The proprieter, Howie Kats replaced the switch on the spot, so no harm no foul, and muchos kudos to Howie for taking care of it right then and there. The pickup combination is neat, taking you from telecaster bridge twang to a beefy p90 growl with the flick of a switch. If I were in your spot though, I'd look at the Harley Benton black paisley model. Lot of good word of mouth on that one and it looks amazing.

    sorry, I thought NUT was the correct word. Hey we have a few official languages here, and English is really not one of them... ;-)
