    the guitar's fingerboard boasts a wildly popular 9.5" to 14" compound-radius. The back of the neck sports a compound C to D profile....
    Shawbucker humbucker in the bridge. As if that weren't enough, the Fender S1 switch — conveniently located in the guitar's tone knob — opens up access to even more pickup combinations.

    Very nice. I see it has body cut.

    All the Elites have the tummy cut — this one has a forearm contour too (it’s the first unbound Elite I think).
    I haven’t been a huge Nashville fan but this looks very nice indeed!

    That is an odd position for a tele bridge pickup

    Many years ago, about 30 actually, I did the same thing.
    My logic was that, using a Strat style 5 way switch, the bridge and middle pickup should be the same.
    It sounded good, I just eventually quit liking Strat-esque sounds.

    The guitar looks cool!

    My first thought was not "Tele bridge" but strat bridge. I dig it!

    Is 9 1/2 - 14 radius 'wildly popular'? I must be missing out...

    Not sure how popular the compound radius neck is, but I have them on a couple of American Deluxe Strats and can't say it's a noticeable change from say a 9.5... I do like the neck on this Tele better than most. It could have a little fatter profile for my liking but very nice regardless. I personally do like the new no skunk stripe necks as I have a couple of guitars that the filler wood has sunk and allows me to feel it. I know a lot of folks feel it's more traditional but it doesn't seem like a good idea to mill out and refill the part of a guitar that I am most in contact with if it's avoidable.

    Actually the thread title name is wrong, it is:

    Fender Limited Edition Parallel Universe American Professional Elite Deluxe Nashville Telecaster

    I've used it as a password, as there would be know way anyone would think of it..............................then I forgot it.
