That's true, and it seems to me the 10/56 has grown over the recent years, at least the ones I've tried in the stores. The only thing is Fender is making such a big deal about the close tolerances of the EJ I wonder if they will vary much, at least at first.Originally posted by buddastrat
I have played some '56 relics that had thinnish necks too. Maybe they'll vary like every other Fender.
I feel the same way. My Suhrs have 10-14, which is a nice blend of easy chording low and clean bending up high. I also like the straight 10" on my PRSs. I have a Anderson with 12-14, and it feels a little flat to me for chords, although it's not terrible.Originally posted by OWENMUSTANG
the only thing i'm not crazy about is 12 radius. a little flat if you ask me..
Hey bro', I just read a review by a guy who got his black EJ strat. He said you better like fat necks. Says it's as fat as his R8! That's fat.Originally posted by fjs1962
I was pretty excited about them until I heard the neck carve is slimmer like the 57RI instead of the fat 10/56 Fender neck I like.
That sounds promising! The couple of guys I talked to who got to play the EJ at NAMM said they had the 57RI V neck carve. I have a friend who writes a gear column for one of the trade papers and he's supposed to have a EJ coming to review, so I'll get to try one in the next month or so.Originally posted by buddastrat

That's what I've found as well. I like the PRS wide/fats on my McCartys, but I also like the SUhr 56 Big V, which is deeper but not as wide at the nut, and also has a nice soft V shape. I tried a Suhr with the Even C Huge neck, which is the same depth as the Big V but in a C shape, and it was too clubby for me. I also have a R7 Les Paul and the neck on it is pretty clubby to me, but it sounds so good I don't mind fighting it a littleOriginally posted by KLB
if the nut width is 1.63-1.65" and the sides are tapered enough, you don't notice the bigness.
I was thinking the other colors had already been gobbled up by pre-orders? I know Sweetwater has (or did have) a sunburst and a CAR in stock.Originally posted by KLB
Maybe that's why Black ones are available first?
