    I'm looking at building a '52 HR partscaster. Anyone out there know what I'd have to order from Warmoth, USACG, Musikraft, etc to get basically the same neck profile?

    9.5 inch radius for starters. if you find out what profile Fenders uses, let us know.

    Here's the specs:
    U profile
    9.5" radius
    1.650" nut
    Medium-Jumbo frets

    USACG can get you there custom. I ordered the Allparts TMO-FAT since it fit all the specs except the frets for much less than the USACG. The dimensions online were too small for Med-Jumbo frets, but they might be ok. I imagine the TMO-FAT will need a little work (dress frets and ends, sand, possibly adjust back profile), but for the price and some elbow grease I'm there. Now to choose a finish...
