I remember reading that Stevie Ray Vaughan, who played a 1960's strat with a (7.5'?) radius had fender spec his signature model with a 12" radius for easier bending. I've wanted one of these for a while. (PSST.... Santa, I've been good!!!)

Fender built it to match Stevie's #1, which had been refretted and reworked so frequently that it had flattened out to a 12 or 14" radius.

I have a tele, not sure what radius is, but it chokes on the widdly widdly frets without raising the strings higher than i like.
