    Please let me know, I want it lol.

    Been looking for one for a few years and they are pretty tough to find.

    Would much prefer the 7.25 radius board.

    I had a line on one but it had some alarm bells due to some weird mods that didn’t sit well with me.

    Anyone know if any for sale? I check eBay and reverb now and then but don’t live on the sites so I’m sure I’ve missed a few over the past couple of years.

    Thanks!

    I have a feeling at least one Nocaster CS iteration had 9.5" or even 11" radius and medium-jumbo frets - check to be sure.

    Thanks for the tips. I should mention looking for a CS not an original. Also not Masterbuilt.

    Some of these on Reverb are promising but most all have a 9.5 radius.

    I’ve been looking for years so I expect to keep looking!

    Thanks!

    Look at the Fender catalog. There you can create your NoCaster from scratch.. You place the order at the Fender dealer and you wait for some time and there it is... YOUR PERFECT NOCASTER.

    Wildwood Thin Skins = 9.5" radius & 6105 frets

    Wildwood '10s' = 10" radius & 6105 frets

    Both runs had black '50s Teles in varying degrees of non relic and relic.
