    I recently bought an Affinity Tele after they switched over to Crafted in Indonesia. One of the first things I noticed was that my fingers weren't cramped playing an open 3 finger A chord as they always were on the CIC model. I measured the nut and it was a full 1 5/8" which I believe is wider than the CIC model I had in the past but sold due to the narrow nut.

    Has anyone else noticed this?
    I put in some OV pups and CTS pots and I'm loving this Tele.

    Yep, but the Indonesian string through Affinity (2012-2017) was full width as well. Only the Chinese version was more narrow.

    But since I replaced the nut on my Chinese toploader, I chose one with standard E-e spacing, which solved the problem anyway. The high and low e were closer to the edge of the fretboard, but for my style of playing, that doesn't really make any difference.

    I was surprised with the new Indonesian top load Affinity too...
