I tried using the search function with no luck I am seriously considering buying a new 51 Nocaster this weekend(most likely in the NOS format). But I have a few questions. -When did they change the neck from a big U to a soft V? And how do they compare?(ie is the V less chunky?) -Why do they label the color as Nocaster blonde and not butterscotch blonde? -Which would be more accurate to that time period, the Nocaster blonde color or the BSB from the AV 2012-2017 era? -Can it really even be called a proper Nocaster if it has 6105 frets, 9.5 radius, quartersawn neck, and soft v neck? I don't think any of the originals had those specs(but I could be wrong!) I had a 2016 AV 52, didn't like the rolled edges. I've considered a Wildwood Thin Skin 52( a LOT less money), but don't like the roasted maple neck. Even the new Nocasters have a double-A maple neck which I'm not a huge fan of. It seems no one wants to make the traditional "pale" maple neck anymore Any help would be appreciated!
