    HI,
    For the fender Historians, I was just wondering, on the American model precisions and Jazz basses, what year did fender change form the old radius (7.25) up to the moern radius (9.5)
    I've found a couple of P'basses but want to know which one would have the more modern radius.
    Thanks,
    Thump3r

    I can't give you proper years but from what I believe it was 9.5 radius in the 50's and 60's then cbs changed it to 7.25" in the 70's. It went back to 9.5" somewhere in the early 80's when cbs sold fender.

    If anyone knows better than me or has precise years then by all means post it :)
