Yeah my birthday is coming up which means the barely supressable urge to buy guitars has risen to its frothy top! I played a lot of mediocre guitars at my local shops yesterday until I picked up, on a whim, a 52' vintage hot rod tele. Maybe it was only thing on the wall with fresh strings but it played so well. Phrases that were a struggle on other guitars seemed to just flow out of this one and I usually don't even like maple fretboards. I've always found strat necks to be difficult and stiff to play but this one played like a PRS strung with 9's! The tag said that the neck was a "U" shape and the fretboard was a 9.5 radius. I've never played a neck like that before so I am guessing that I might have stumbled upon something that fits in my hands well. I am off to San Francisco today with the wife and I'll see if I can find another 52' and see if my impressions are the same as before. However, this is the thing, I'm pouring over the Fender website looking at different guitars trying to find any other guitars that have a 9.5 U neck but there are about a hundred different solid bodied guitars made by Fender and it doesn't include discontinued models. Can anyone think of another Fender with the same neck. The only thing I didn't like was the neck pickup which is a humbucker. I don't want a humbucker in the neck position and I am hesitant to buy a guitar for nearly two grand and then turn around and tear it apart. What other Fenders, I prefer strats and teles, have a U shaped neck with the 9.5 radius?
