    I am new the desire to purchase a tele.....long time player...Grosh Retro Classic Strat and a R8 Custom Shop Les Paul.....i have been picking up some very good country and see the utility of acquiring one....The issue i have are the specs....NECK RADIUS..WHOLE STEP BENDING AND FRET WIRE FOR THE FEEL OF THE GUITAR.... THE TONE AND VIBRATO...NECK SIZE AND SHAPE....THINGS I AM EXTRAORDINARILY PICKY ABOUT.....THERE ARE SO MANY VARIANTS OF COMPOUND NECK RADIUS AND FRET WIRE.....I DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN...ALSO THE BARREL SADDLES VS INDIVIDUAL ADJUSTABLE SADDLES FOR INTONATION...I STILL WANT CLASSIC TONE AND VIBE I JUST HAVE NO TERMS OF REFERENCE REGARDING NECK THICKNESS..I CONSIDER MYSELF TO HAVE SMALL HANDS AND DO NOT LIKE HUGE NECKS...MOST FENDER NECKS ON STRATS ARE OK. KNOWING WHAT TO BUY IS OFTEN MORE THAN HALF THE BATTLE.....I HAVE LOOKED A BIT AT RON KIRN TELES.. AS I LIVE IN FLORIDA....ANY GUIDANCE CONCERNING THESE ISSUES ...AS A PRACTICAL MATTER....WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL AS I ATTEMPT TO SORT IT ALL OUT....QUALITY IS A MUST...
