FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Telecasters / Chris Shiflett Telecaster



Aug 23rd, 2016 02:49 PM   Edit   Profile   Print Topic   Search Topic

Can anybody tell me if CS Telecaster has a MODERN "C" neck profile? The specs simply say "C" which gives me pause when "modern" is mentioned on all the other "C" profile guitars. Is it modern, 60's or some hybrid "C"? Thanks in advance to those that respond.

First of all, I think you're right to be dubious of Fender specs, because they aren't always that clear or consistent. I think they're getting better at this, though.

I'm not totally sure what Modern means when it comes to Tele necks, but my guess is this mainly means a wider nut profile as compared to the thinner vintage nut width. The Shiflett nut width is listed as 42mm, which would make it thinner than the 42.8mm that you'd get on an American Standard. So I guess that's what they mean.

So, IOW, I'd assume the neck carve is similar to a "Modern C"--the only difference being the nut width.
