    I have a China Tele Affinity with a neck chunky like a MIM built around 2010, I have an Indonesian Standard Tele that has the typical Squier Strat thin carve built around 2011. So they can be all over. If you can find pictures see if the carve starts at the fretboard leading edge (thin Squier Strats) or behind the glue line so the fretboard edge is 'square' (chunky carve). Nut width and neck depth will be within 1mm on any of them and offers no clues, it is purely the shape of the shoulder carve.

    The neck on my Squier Cabronita is somewhat chunky. Fatter than any of my classic vibes but not as fat as my Baja.

    Never considered a Cab, didn't even know Squier had a Cab model. Gonna have to look into it. Thanks for the heads-up. How are the pups, and weight?

    My thickest Squire is my Vintage Mod 70s Strat. CV50's Tele is close.

    My CV50'S P bass is a whole maple tree. It's a club for sure.

    Weights is awesome probably in the low seven pound range. Pickups are a little dark for my taste but I believe the put. 250 k pot in the Squier version and I might change it to 500 k. This guitar is discontinued so you'd need to look for a used one.

    I have a Squier Tele from 94 and the neck is pretty thick on that one.

    Squier 51 necks can be formidable clubs. I think there's one in the classified section. I played a 72 reissue that also had some real girth.

    I agree.

    Of course people who play mostly real 1950s guitars would probably think it's thin, so it's all relative.

    It is IMO far easier to convert a Squier 51 into a functioning Telecaster (that would record just like one) than it is to make a thin neck into a thicker neck.

    A long time ago, I submitted images of one on a guitar board and got a call from none other than Mr. Bill Lawrence! :^)
