    Neck shape question

    Hello all! I had a 1997 CE24 with the wide/thin neck and while I loved everything about the guitar, the neck always made my fretting hand cramp after a short while so I sold it. This was with classical hand positions, thumb over, soft touch, didn’t matter. I don’t squeeze the neck or fret...

    PRS S2 neck profile not written in tag

    After spending sometime playing my core custom 22, I found its neck profile (wide fat) to be the best for my hands and needs. Having also a S2 Custom 22 with a pattern regular neck, which is a bit thiner than the core model but round and big enough for my liking, I decided to pull the trigger...

    PRS Wide Thin

    Hi guys. So i’m thinking about to get me a PRS with a wide thin neck. Right now I’m playin on a Gibson with a asymmetrical slim taper neck. My question is how much thiner is the wide thin neck then the slim taper? I can’t test it at my local music store because they don’t have any PRS.

    SE Neck Recarve

    I have a 2018 SE Chris Robertson. It's a great guitar, in fact one of the best sounding electrics that I have. The color is perfect. It is sort of heavy, but that does not bother me. What does bother me is the neck. It has the chunkiest wide-fat neck I have ever played.....it is baseball bat...

    Total Beginner: Neck Profile

    Looking to tap your collective wisdom about the impact of neck profile for a beginner. I'm a total beginner to guitar, starting at age 39. (I tell my wife, there are worse mid-life crises.) I've been goofing around with my kid's 3/4 scale Squier for a few months now. After a lot of reading...

    Anyone know a list of Wide Thin neck guitars?

    Hi, There is information scattered all over the place but I haven't found a list that shows which models feature wide thin necks. I ask because when you look at reverb/ebay listings they often omit that info. I played a core at GC the other day and noticed the neck was quite different than...
