I measured mine which is a 9.5 radius, and it indeed measures 2 1/16".

So it's beginning to look like Fender might have changed the 9.5" Am Pro bridge to narrower E-E spacing, without telling anyone.

I just ordered a replacement for my American Pro Jazzmaster . It is indeed 2 1/16” / 52 mm.

Looks like Fender recognized the problem and changed their specs.

Where did you order from if you don’t mind me asking? I think so far the only confirmed supplier of the new spacing was Darren Riley.

I found mine on eBay. The seller is Guitarpartsfactory , formerly Guitar Parts Resource. You can order directly from their website also.
