    I think that both the Fender and Squier early 1990s used a similar neck. Here is my 1993 Fender labeled one. Note that if you want to change to vintage tuners, the low E one overhangs the back side of the head stock.

    I know some of the Affinitys had a bigger, goofy shape, at least in some years. Both mine did but I cut them both down to regulation shape.

    I've only ever seen one Korean Squier Tele.. it's on a chambered mahogany HH short scale I bought here in oz second hand a decade ago ...

    it has a KC prefix though...

    I don't think anyone would fake a Korean Squier logo .....:rolleyes::D

    Most people always seem to look at the headstock of vintage Fenders for "the real shape". Those were cut by hand, using bandsaws, so inevitably they'll all vary a little when it comes to shape. As long as the headstock has the right ballpark shape, it's alright with me.
