I'm a 9s guy with Fenders. Will the nut be filed for 10s now?
I'd think so. The assumption is that it's properly set up, including the nut, before it leaves the building. You'll likely need to touch up the intonation when using a set of different gauges, but the nut shouldn't need any changes going one size smaller on all strings.
BTW welcome to TDPRI. What guiter do you have? We'd love to see pictures of it.
Thanks. Yes I would expect to have to adjust the TR and intonation but was worried about the nut.
My new one is a '52 tele but with a roasted maple neck.
That’s a beautiful guitar. My favourite colour. What neck shape did you go with?
I *love* that white blonde. Nice guitar.
I always cut my nuts with .010 file set, whether I use 9s or 10s. No issues whatsoever.
Dude, that guitar is sweet. And so is that G&G center pocket case.
I may change to brass saddles at some point. Can't be a white blonde telecaster. Here's mine in it's center pocket case, but it's the Fender, not a G&G. It's a little tougher to find the center pocket G&G's.
Beautiful guitar. White blonde looks great with maple or rosewood. Fender should always have a white blonde in one of their model series!
I put 12-52 on my new Performer...Looks like strings fit nut fine to me. I had to do a little adjusting around
It's a '52 U profile.
Ever try hybrids on a Fender (9-46's)? That way you won't lose the bass and can still bend easy, especially with vintage voiced pups...
Nice White Blonde Telecaster, congrats!
Doesn't G&G make all the Fender CS cases?
Tens? You're gonna need to send that back.
There are some Fender-branded, center pocket, tweed cases not made by G&G. Cheaper, pretty sure they’re made in China.
I've gone back and forth between 9s and 10s without any adjustments. I didn't notice any difference in relief. You should be good, you may or may not need to adjust--depending on how picky you are. With the 3 saddle bridge, how accurate is innotation anyway?
my gawd, that is beautiful. I'm not even a maple guy.. but I can live with this!
1.Do not touch the nut.
2.String the guitar with your favorite gauge.
3.Check relief,intonation and action and adjust accordingly, I don't think that the super rigid and fat neck will even move but checking is always a good idea.
