    Pics later when camera charges :)

    Bought guitar unseen...well unplayed I suppose. Private sale through muso forum

    2016 CS special spec for Coda store UK

    Anyone tried the 65 C Strat 10" radius Tele neck?

    I was expecting a thicker neck TBH but the shape of the neck has won me over...it's great

    7.5 lbs and looks like it was made yesterday

    A question for the enlightened folk.....were all the original 52s necks big thick U shaped jobs?

    PS One thing I have come to realise is there are a few versions of BSB

    :)

    Disclaimer: I'm not an expert and I don't have a reference for you, right now, but from measured examples the original necks varied a lot. About half were U-profile, about half were V-profile, with an occasional C-profile. It's only with the various Fender reissues that a U-profile became consistent.

    Sweet! I have one too with a Chunky U neck. But it's a little more broken in. :rolleyes:

    On the subject of necks, mine is a big "C" so there's another data point.
