    I thought that this may be a fun and interesting little exercise…

    I'm going to post a picture of the three guitars that I own - all Telecasters. I'm also going to post three different weights and three different measures of neck thicknesses (I was excited to try my new digital calipers!). Anyhow, let's see if anyone can match the correct Tele to the correct weight and neck thickness.

    Who wants to play?


    Weight A - 7 lbs 6.8 oz

    Weight B - 8 lbs 3.3 oz

    Weight C - 6 lbs 13.8 oz


    Neck Thickness X - 1st .8860 - 12th .9385

    Neck Thickness Y - 1st .8190 - 12th .8825

    Neck Thickness Z - 1st .8165 - 12th .8770


    Tele #1 - Fender American Special Telecaster (2017)

    I know the .886 inch neck (X) is the HR 52.

    Everything else is guessing. American Specials are normally more like .83-.84 so I have no idea.

    The American Professional spec is modern deep 'C' .820" and .920"

    Y and Z could both be the Special which is 'slim' modern 'C' 820" and 870"
