I good friend called me and told me that the new Tele he bought was not to spec, the nut was way too wide, as was the neck. I told him to check another guitar that he recently purchased, he did and the 1.65 nut width spec measured 1.77 . I advised him that as far as I know, Fender does not have any 1.77 NUTS on guitars , especially on 7.25 radius guitars. Its not the guitar ! I'm gonna go visit him with my tools and see what's up. If things don't seem right when measuring, its probably because "THEY AREN'T " LOL I have a cheap digital Caliper from Lowes and its common that the zeroing moves a few digits ( 100ths) every now and then . I keep checking it and measure 3 or 4 times. When we are only measuring 1.65, that 2nd digit is extremely important. Guitar companies like Fender and Gibson do not have erratic parts for production guitars. If 1 is bad, they're ALL bad. If a guitar is made with a 1.65 nut, and 1000 of them are 1.65, someone doesn't get one that's 1.77 , maybe 1.66 which is probably in spec. Same with the neck, nobody gets a production guitar with a very odd sized or shaped neck different from the other exact same production guitars. My friend also told me that his NEW guitar doesn't' feel like mine ( same production guitar ) . I reminded him that mine has different strings ( a tad lighter) and I spent gobs of time working on the setup. I reminded him that even I noticed a big difference from the factory setup which was pretty good, to the fine tuned setup. We all need a good Caliper and patience !
