    Sold my 51 reissue and replacing it with this. A CS 50's 2007. The 51's neck was just too big for me. This one has a custom profile, a 65 C shape, should have it tomorrow. Really like the white blonde with blackguard. Has the broadcaster/twisted tele combo.

    Beautiful! Congrats. That is a classic look.
    White Blondes look great with rosewood or maple fretboards.

    guitar now in my hands. It is perfection!! The neck is to die for. Medium C with a great taper. Almost identical to my PV 64 but just a little bigger overall. Lovely light relic with checking. Came without a switch tip but I had an old one in the parts bin. I love that the finish is on the back of the neck. I prefer that feel. Sounds like a big fat tele should. That broadcaster pickup is fat and clear. This was a really lucky find.

    Schwing Schwing the white blonde is killer. I understand the whole 51', 52' neck thing, they're bloody huge. I will persist with mine cause it's just so damn awsome in every other respect & rare.......oh, except for the Bigsby love the look ,HATE HATE HATE restringing the stupid things.

    Congrats. Looks killer. I also couldn’t bond with the nocaster neck. Tad too big. Love the 52pv u-shape profile.

    thanks, I really tried to make it work because it sounded sooooo good, but I found myself thinking about the neck to much as a played along with some pain at the base of my thumb, made it a definite no go.

    Lovely!

    Fit and feel are top priority when you actually PLAY these things. :)
