: Rosewood necks?
: DetroitBlues August 25, 2015, 11:04:55 AM
My quest for the perfect strat has yet to end.... In the past six weeks, I've gone through a couple Strats...

Fender Classic Players 50's Strat
Fender Classic Series 60's Strat Lacquer
Fender USA Standard FSR.

Settled on the FSR as it had a unique 3TSB in a "Mystic" metallic finish with aluminum pickguard and rear control plate.  Also has a V neck profile with a rosewood board (first ever for a non-Custom Shop Fender) and compound radius.  (Also a first for a non-Deluxe USA model).

But after a month of playing my Reverend and my LP Jr., I am still in love with fatter necks.  I found a Warmoth Rosewood neck I can replace the American Standard for basically no cost if I sell the American neck...

I don't know what the profile is called. Boat? It's pretty fat.
