    Shipping delayed until 12-04. Disappointed.

    For those that own this guitar can you describe how the neck feels. I am familiar with the Fender soft v and deep c but not anything LP. SW has 2 in stock but I don’t want to pay shipping to and back if I need to return because of the neck.
    I have smallish hands and slightly arthritic so a good fit is important.
    Thanks

    It is very close to the 50's necks on two of my LPs. Not gigantic, but thick and full. It is a C shape. It is also a little wider than Fender necks. It is easily fuller than most of the Strat necks I've ever played... But, it's far from gigantic or huge. It's a nice handfull.

    There isn't a lot of taper, depth-wise. But it's not straight, either.

    It is a nice rounded C, near the nut. Not enough shoulders to call it a D. But, the profile is slightly flatter up around the 12th fret to the body joint.

    It also has nicely rolled fretboard edges.

    Full disclosure, I have big hands, long fingers and prefer big, thick, wide necks. I love my SE Santana, it is far from my largest neck, but, it is on the wider side of the median.

    Ah, but there have been at least two generations of that.

    Previous - 22 frets, Layout like a Custom 22/24

    Current, 24 frets, layout like a Santana

    I'm pulling your leg a little here, but just wanted to make the point that SE Santana can mean a lot of things.

    I was trying to be funny, it may have sounded like I was being condescending. Its a new, my guess Indonesian model.

    I had one of the 22 fret yellow ones a few years back and it was an amazing guitar. I don't have any idea why I sold it but I would love to have it back.
