Hi Forum Folke, I have what might be a strange question: is there a version of Squier strats that is smaller than "standard?" Reason I'm asking is the Squier Standard I just got is giving me fits; it seems like the neck is too narrow... I have a great deal of trouble producing clean notes in places (like fretting the second string at the first fret... I wind up muting either the first or third unless I take scrupulous pains to come straight down on it... and if I move even a little, the mute happens again.) I used to play a Strat Plus many years ago, and I absolutely cannot recall having this kind of issue with it. Using a vernier and measuring the fingerboard right at the nut, I get 1.596" or 1 19/32" (40.55 mm). My Epiphone "SG" measures 1.695" or 1 11/16" (43.07mm) measured at the same place. That's only a tenth of an inch difference... but it makes all the difference in the world in playability, at least for me. Bought it over the internet, so no chance to play it beforehand, and my knowledge of the full lineup of strats and wanna-be's is fairly sparse. So have my fingers become fatter with age, or am I indeed dealing with a smaller-than-"normal" neck? Thanks so much!!!
