    Do you know of any other Fender guitar besides the EJ strat, Deluxe Roadhouse and Player Plus that has a 12" radius fingerboard?

    Of the models mentioned above I have owned

    72 Tele Deluxe reissue,
    Older Kenny Wayne Shepherd,
    60's Classic Player,
    American Deluxe Nashville Tele.

    The 60's Classic Player is my favorite 12" radius neck and if you like the smaller necks I highly recommend.

    If you like larger necks, then try out K.W.S.

    The other necks I've tried fall in between those two profile wise, but all are/were nice.

    Some other ones:
    • 1983-84 Elites (same neck as the 1983-84 2-knob standard)
    • All the mid-2016-mid 2021 MIM Deluxe models
    • All the new MIM Player Plus models
    Several models have compound radius necks so for most of them they cross the 12" radius about half-way down the neck, but of course they start out rounder than 12": Fender used 9.5"-14" on American Deluxes from 2010-2015 and on the American Elites from 2016-2019 (plus it shows up on some of the Fender Selects and on limited editions from time to time since being introduced in 2010); and they use 10"-14" on the American Ultras/Ultra Luxes. Those short-lived Vintage Hot Rod models of 2013-2014 (they were made for about 13 months from late 2013 until they were discontinued around Thanksgiving 2014) had a 7.25"-12" compound radius.

    These may not have the Fender logo but are Fender products:
    Squier SE
    Squier Contemporary Series (and older Fender Contemporary Series from Japan)

    Your guitar has active pickups right?

    No, the pickups are passive Vintage Noiseless pickups, which I have noticed give this guitar a slightly higher voice than my other Strats. Its big difference is that it has a push button to add the bridge pickup to the neck pickup and neck-mid pickups.

    The only Strat I own with an active circuit is one where I did the Clapton mods - TBX tone control and mid-boost circuit.
