    Congrats! Isn't this the same mfr that made MIJ Fenders back in the day? A guy I knew back in the 80's had one with a very narrow neck.

    Well, she’s all cleaned, polished and set up with new 10’s. She sounds amazing, plays great and is very well built. The neck profile is middle of the road. Not as thin as my MIM but not as fat as my SE. Not crazy about the narrow nut and the tuners are kinda stiff. The radius is way different from anything I’ve played before. Looks to be 7.5”. Also not crazy about the black plastics with the burst but I’m going to keep her all stock.

    Guy I grew up with lives in BMT (Central High grad). I keep telling him to hit CL and all those little pawn shops there....I10 east(La.) to west(Tx). Nice grab!

  15. Yup ... It's 7¼" radius. Also looks as if the body contour (gut cut) may be aggressive like the early 70's Fender Stratocasters.
    That and others, can be attributed to the Squier line of guitars being born.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    You jammy bastich.

    As we say around here...
    Tokais were the reason Fender launched the Squiers in 1982. The quality was much better than anything Fender turned out after 1974 .
