Telecaster neck angle?

Telecaster neck angle?
Do Telecaster necks have a true 0 degree mount in relation to the body top surface, or is there a slight angle. It is obvious with a Les Paul, due to the bridge type, that there is some visible neck angle. I've read specs that say 3 - 4 degrees on the Les Paul. I can't see any angle on my Telecaster, and don't see an accurate way to measure without removing the neck. Fact is my eyes are not very good anymore. If there is any it seems it couldn't be more than a degree. I'm trying to determine if this is a factor in string height and action. The Fender website has other specifications, but nothing on neck angle.
