    Anybody know where I can get a gold neckplate for an Indio Tele? It's an odd size, slightly smaller than Squier or standard Tele specs. The distance center to center of the screws are about 1/8" less than the other standard ones.

    its an ebay tele. Not a bad tele to practice doing fretwork on. Op, try ebay for "Asian pattern neck plate."

    Indios are actually sold by MonoPrice and as TX_Slinger said their entry level guitars can be very good guitars to learn to do stuff on like fret leveling, setup, electronics overhaul. MonoPrice now sells a newer better version of their Tele styles that are very good. Somewhere between a Squier Bullet and a CV series in terms of quality.

    To answer the OP, you will probably need to make your own neck plate.

    You should try painting the one it came with and polishing it should come out nice if you do it right I got the same indio i scrapped the paint off the body spray painted it and put a maple neck playing amazing was thinking about putting new pickups but i kinda like the crunchy sound they came with sounds real grungy
