Do all Deluxe Strats & Telecasters come equipped with compound radius fretboards, and if not which years do not? also are they all 9.5 > 14" typically? Thanks.

Do you mean American Deluxe and MIM Deluxe Players?

The current model of AmDlx have compound radius, the previous models don't (I'm sure they have 12" radius).

MIM Deluxe Players have a 12" radius.

Previous AmDlx before the last update had 9.5", not 12".

Anyway, the current AmDlx since the latest update are the only Fender guitars with compound radius afaik.

I'm looking to buy an American Deluxe Telecaster. I have a 2010 amdlx strat w/ cmp radius and I love it. I'm looking at a 2008 Tele on eBay that says it has a cmp radius but I'm also trying to spend as little as possible. So when y'all say current vs. previous, what years are we talking about? 2010 and before? thx.

My bad, you are correct.

Not completely sure, when they updated, but I thought it was either last NAMM (2012) or the one before (2011). I am quite sure 2010 still had 9.5" and I am absolutely sure regarding any 2008 model.
Did you actually buy your AmDlx Strat in 2010? When exactly? Or do you judge the year by serial number?

After a quick search, I am quite sure they introduced the compound radius with modelyear 2011.
And there has been the new "Select Series" that seems to feature compound as well.
