Greetings to all of you Strat Talkers! I am new here, and here's my first post. I've already gained some knowledge about Stratocasters from lurking here, but now I have a question that I could not find an answer to by searching threads, so here goes. I've only played guitar for about two and a half years, and have mostly played acoustic, but did get a low-end Gibson Les Paul "Special" sometime back. Well, recently a Squier Affinity Strat popped up on my local craigslist for 20 (yes, twenty) bucks. I snapped it up. Now here's the thing. I have loved messing around with this bargain strat, to the point that I'm wondering if maybe I'm a Fender guy, but it has a quite narrow nut, making me all fat-fingered. I have to be very careful to avoid the ol' "ding-ding-ding-thub-thub-ding" sort of effect on some chords. Maybe this will force me to improve my left hand accuracy? Anyhow, this has led me to do some still incomplete research (maybe one of you with more knowledge can weigh in and help me) that seems to say: Squier Affinity nut width: 1.6 inches. Most foreign-made strats (incl. Mexico), and older American ones: 1.65 in. More recent American strats: 1.685 in. This last spec, the more recent Americans at 1.685 puts the nut width right up there near Gibson Les Pauls (1.69, I think), and also closer to the acoustics I play. Hard to believe that less than 1/10 of an inch spread over six strings would make a noticeable difference, but it does. To me, anyway. I was having so much fun with this Squier Affinity strat that I've been thinking about selling it and getting a wider-nut strat. It would be great if there were such an animal as a Mexican (or other) relatively affordable strat with a 9.5 radius neck and wider nut width. Is there such a thing? I guess the other answer would be to just keep practicing with the Affinity until the narrowness ceases to be a problem. Maybe some of you have done exactly that. I imagine almost anything can be gotten used to (?). Thanks in advance for any feedback! TL/DR: Is there a Mexican (or other) relatively affordable strat with a 9.5 radius neck and wider than 1.65 inch nut width?
