    Pulled the neck off the 'When is a Tele not a Fender' guitar and just as I had guessed, the neck & body are Warmoth. Questions ..... one, what is a 'Warmoth radius' as stamped ? The fretboard feels 9.5. The neck does feels a bit 20210126_062810.jpg more beefy than my Nashville Tele. And two, it is stamped '59' so I assume it is a copy of a 59 Fender Tele neck, right? Thanx 4 your feedback:D

    Why not shoot them an email? Read them the serial numbers or show them pix and they can probably tell you every spec on the neck. You may want to also consider getting some cheap radius gauges. They can come in handy! You likely have a progressive neck radius.

    Thanx, going to write a letter to Warmoth and order a Warmoth headstock decal. I will include a photo of the pic here. I will probably include $10 for shipping it.:D

    IMO, decals aren't worth the effort.
