Does anyone know exactly how that router hump came to be and what caused it? I've seen it written many, many times that it was a limitation of the pin routers that Fender used to cut the bodies, but that just doesn't make sense. Pin routers follow a template outline and are fully capable of cutting a curve that intersects the neck pocket without that goofy hump. I've seen two actual early 50s bodies that didn't have the hump, and Ron Kirn's templates (which he says he copied from a '54 body) don't have the hump either. So now I'm curious to know what really happened. I don't think it was some pinko left-coast commie plot, but I suppose it could be.
