    on a brown truck somewhere en route! should hopefully have my hands on her by the end of the week.

    we'll see how I get along with the skinny neck. I do have a gorgeous birdseye 57' V 1-11/16" nut width neck from Musikraft waiting to be bolted to something....

    It is not that skinny, more like the modern C shape with shoulder pads. I love mine.

    Congrats! I got my eye on one of these, but I'm worried the neck isn't healthy enough for my tastes.

    This one is about .84 at the first fret so not too too bad but I'm used to thicker and I don't usually love a 1-5/8" nut width at all. I'm glad Fender is recreating vintage so closely at a good price, but if you like a different neck, a lightweight body, white blonde nitro, etc. you don't have many other options.

    Oh, this git weighs in at 6lbs 12ozs! My back is so excited!

    Here she is! Gorgeous! Too late to plug in so that'll have to wait until later unfortunately but at 6.5lbs she sure resonates like a dream!

    Neck is closer to 1 11/16 than to 1 5/8.... string spread and depth are good, so I'm debating what to do, but for the moment I'm just enjoying it in all it's stock glory!

    Very nice indeed

    (And the pictures suggest that my OH would never notice if I traded in my 50s Classic for one ;) ).
