    The one i noodled with today was lacking in fit and finish. I know that sometimes things get through, so i hope it was the exception.

    I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. And the color makes it even better.

    It came Monday, which was kinda shocking. Sweetwater generally takes an age. But it is sweet, and I love the color.

    Let the gouging begin! I just saw a listing for a Fender Tenor Telecaster on a popular instrument buy-sell-trade site for $100 over list price.
    This really is no fun at all.

    I readily admit I'm not paying much attention to electric tenor guitar discussions, nor have I read most of the posts other than to discern they're difficult to find. That said, isn't this one of them? And it was confirmed in stock, or was about 45 minutes ago: https://www.melodeemusic.com/shop/c/...-x44721523.htm

    Could somebody please tell me the exact string spacing at the nut and at the saddle. Just the total distance between the outer stings preferably in mms.
    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    Fender says 31.75mm nut width. So approximately 5.5mm in from the edge and 7mm spacing.

    Guitar Guitar here in Edinburgh, who has my deposit for a butterscotch one, tells me that a big shipment of stuff from Fender is coming in next week, and that it should be there! Twitchy to say the least! Hope it appears!
