    Between stupid and clever.

    Does anyone know what would be the correct specs for a 1959 Telecaster? Here's what I need to know:

    1- Jack plate (chrome or nickel)
    2- Tuners (inline on a single plate or individual inline machines)
    3- Bridge (nickel or chrome finish)
    4- Saddles (brass or other)
    5- Control plate (nickel or chrome)
    6- Volume/Tone knobs (dome or flat tops)
    7- Strap buttons (nickel or chrome)
    8- Width at nut
    9- Nut type (bone or other)

    Basically, I need to know which parts were nickel and which were chrome.
