    telecaster deluxe- the ones with two wide range humbuckers. 1983 top loader strats have a 12 radius so I think the teles from that year do too- might be others

    The current (mid-2016 to present) MIM Deluxe Nashville and Deluxe Thinline have a 12" radius as well.

    Deluxe Strats have 12" also. Or some do anyway.

    The contemporary telecaster (Squier?) is also 12” radius.

    I recently bought a '92 American Standard US made tele - it has a 12" radius on a rosewood fretboard. I was a little surprised and wanted a 9.5" R (I also would have preferred a maple neck) but the guitar is in mint condition and I'm getting used to the flatter profile. I am also interested to know more about the tele radius history.
