Indeed.  That’s yummy.

I spent an hour playing my 1980s Japanese made Squier Tele the other night.  It has a 1 11/16″ nut, which I find a bit big, being a mandolin player.  The radius on the fingerboard is also a good match for my SCGC dread.  So it feels very acoustic-y in my left hand.

I couldn’t tell you what the saddle distances are.  Standard Fender I imagine (if there is such a thing).

After feel, you’re looking for sound.  As an acoustic player I am actually enjoying –after all these years– the stacked humbucker I put in the neck pocket back in the early 1990s.  Really fat sound.  Takes well to a little bit of break-up in the preamp and some tremolo.

Enjoy the search!
