Just came across this post and whoa!Yes, the Wilko I had, the neck profile was closer to my '64 AVRI - 60's shape, slimmer at the nut broadening and thickening toward the heel. It was very nice. Mine had a lovely quality rosewood board too, was a nice medium weight and resonated nicely.
Aside form the Poly finish and the slightly lacking bridge Mex pickup, it was a very nice model well put together.
I replaced the bridge pickup with a Bare Knuckles Yardbird and put a tort guard on it and compensating saddles. Tell me it doesn't look cool...
Returned it to stock when I sold it.

Just sold mine for £750 to a collectorHi this is my first time on any forum. I have a simple question to ask. I have a Wilko Johnson tele it is in excellent condition and has all the relevant photographs ETC that came with it. I am thinking of selling it but would like to know what it is worth could anybody help me.
Yes, I don't know how big the second run was but they did do more.Didn't Fender do two runs ? So more than 200 were produced, but still limited.
Interesting comparison, @rze99 , I've never seen a side-by-side of the two models.
I must admit I thought the neck was pretty skinny, but very playable. But the Classic 60's is thinner ?
It looks like the Wilko has more rounded shoulders on the neck profile.
