FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Classic player 50s vs 60s

From the very first post: "...I like the V neck and 9.5 radius on my Baja Tele and want the Strat to be the same."

I have played a couple of Baja Teles. Their necks are a shape/thickness unto their own. I would not expect ANY other guitar to be in the same league.

You need to play them first to really find out. Just because something says "V" neck doesn't mean a thing if you're trying to match the neck shape and thickness.

"If you can find a used one, Fender put out a special edition of the CP 50s Strat in 2012. Came with a black G and G case, nitro finish, and the 4th position had the neck and middle. Pups wired in parallel for a thicker sound. Ca me in 2 tone burst only. Only made about 327 or something like that, so they are a pretty rare beast. Highly recommended.k"

I managed to buy one of these back then. It is an incredible guitar. I had the pick out of two - the other was unremarkable. Flame maple neck. All nitro. That 4 th position in the selector sounds pure Tele. I've been playing strats 38 years and this is one of the best I've ever had.
