7.5 fret radius

Did hendrix and clapton used strats with 7.5 fret radius? I heard it was hard to do bends with them, but when i hear them on records, they can be heard doing 2 step string bends sometimes. I know John Frusciante, and Mike McCready uses vintage strats, so do theirs also have 7.5 radius on their strats?

its not hard to do bends with, its just a different feel. playing lead can get a little awkward, you jut gotta be used to the feel. its very very pleasant feeling when playing chords though, good lord. your fingers dont get tired half as fast, its as if your hand wraps perfectly around the neck.
