Was it always stock or did he have it changes (radius,fret size back contour) ?
I read somewhere that it was not a huge fat neck. But larger than say a 60s and had a V shape, more like a 57 neck shape.
Brownie was '56 so probably not that big. I've played many and owned a couple, very comfortable necks, for me anyway.
i had one of the Fender Masterbuilt Brownie replicas - the neck was fat v-neck. clapton is on record as saying that brownie was quite a chunky 'industrial' profile neck (one of the reasons he ended up preferring Blackie and using that guitar more).
other thing about the neck is it had very little taper - i think when i measured the replica neck it was around .920 at the first (but ill double check the number, if you like)
OT but.....Clapton did not have much imagination naming his guitars, right?
