What's the proper scale length for a Tele style guitar?And from what points is it to be measured?I'm building one and I think the bridge might be located incorrectly,because I can't get it to intonate:mad:
Any help with this would be appreciated.Pleasetry to keep the mockery to a minimum.

What "Nine" said is corect but you also have to add 1/8th from the 12th fret and the saddel measurement for compensation.
