Well, people may say perhaps but for myself, the two I had in my hands had excellent fretwork. I desperately tried to make them buzz, rattle, fret out but to no avail. No fret sprout or sharp ends in sight either. As to the 7’25’’… will ya people leave us vintage spec Indians a little place of our own in the Fender line-up? The “plain Vintera" is their only line offering full vintage-spec. Good citizens who prefer flatter radii have plenty to choose from in other Fender lines, starting from the Vintera modified.
