The Vintera '50s Telecaster, or the Vintera '50s Modified? I know the Modified has a V neck (which I like) , but the Vintera '50s Modified has a 7.25" radius (which I also like).

Has anybody their hands on both? What can you tell me about the necks?

Thanks for those neck dimensions...gives me an idea of what it's like. Looks like something I could deal with. Now I just have to find one.

My own crude measurements on my Vintera '50s are .875" at the 1st and 1.0" at the 12th or very slightly less.
I picked the '50s over the Modified because I wanted all '50s features, including the 7.25 radius.
