Hi Low tones,

I am by no means an expert on Tele's or single radius necks, so please take this as a question and not as criticism.

David stated that his Tele frets out, but never mentioned bending. Could he not simply have a high 19th fret?

you could get the board re-radiused by a good luthier. costly though. fenders are notorious for having the neck poorly aligned when attached though hich often causes fret outs higher up the board, try this:
get a friend to loosen the screws while you hold the neck and body( loosen strings first of course). now pull the neck to where you want it and hold it tight as your friend screws it back on.
Hi Yerffej,

If you put a piece of metal srcreen (like from a window screen) in the neck cavity when you do this it will bite into both pieces of wood and it will stay put. Just don't let the ends of the screen poke out around the edges, or ouching will occur.
