I've always wanted a tele with a humbucker in the neck. I'm looking at two: a Mexican made Fender Telecaster Special and a US made California Fat Telecaster.

I wondering where I might get the specs on these like neck shape, pickups, etc.

Anyone know?

I would assume, as they aren't Vintage repro type models, they would be the Modern C Shape with a 9½" boards but I could be wrong.

The Mexican Tele Special would be an early nineties SH model.
That was a souped up Standard, so it should have the same 9.5" Modern "C" neck - as Mr. Sims already wrote.
