    Sounds like the one I was looking at with the 10" radius. I went for an SRO FAT in the end...it's an inch thick at the first and twelfth frets. Took a bit of sorting out the sharp fret ends, but it's really nice now. Just waiting for some more parts to arrive so I can start assembling it. I'm used to skinny vintage frets as my 1982 JV Squier Strat has them. I built a fat neck Esquire with a MIM neck that has the vintage tall frets, so I think I'll be OK with this one.

    It's getting hard to find shops with parts in stock at the moment: I ordered a set of Fender vintage tuners from Gear4music and even though they said 'in stock' 2 weeks ago, they keep moving the expected delivery date. :(

    Congrats on both builds. I admire those who assemble their own amps. I'd love to do one but am to old and shaky to try anymore.
    Great way to spend time and get something very worthwhile in the process.
    Enjoy them.

    Not so different from the Fender and Gibson factories...:)
