    So, I read this post here about Jimi Hendrix black 68 strat
    http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showpost.php?p=5903160&postcount=31

    when you order a custom shop 68 strat, you get the standard 69 U neck shape

    now is this neck shape different from the one on jimis famous guitar?

    because I was able to test some 66-69 CS strats today, and they had VERY thick necks, they weren't slim at all and even thicker than the C necks

    was jimis 68 a slim U or a thick U?

    Who says Jimi's strat had a thin neck? Jimi had enormous hands. Any neck would look small in those hands. I wouldn't worry about the size of the neck. Play the guitar which has a neck that is comfortable to you.
