    I dig Gibson Flying V's, but they seem to have such thin/flat neck profiles. I dig baseball bats like on the historics. Anyone know of any past or present V's with big neck profiles?

    If you don't mind the looks - the gothic's, to me, seem to have a fatter neck profile. YMMV Might be hard to find one to try out though

    I thought I'd heard the '59s or the '59 replicas were the ones with the big necks. I've never seen a replica go for less than around $5-6k and I never see the real '59s up for sale.

    I have a Flying V Custom (02, I think) and the neck is huge. I like big necks and this is the biggest of all my dozen or so electrics. The Custom is based on the 59 V so I would expect the neck to be similar. They can be found for less money than the 59 Korinna, between 2500 and 3K used.
