I know this info is available somewhere in this forum, but a quick search didn't provide the information. I like most the things about the regular production Beck Strat, at least on paper, so I'm wondering about the neck dimensions. I like chunky!

Can someone help me out, either with measurements or at least a description?

Up until 2000 the neck was 1" thick with no taper,9.5 radius with a 1.68" nut.
After 2000 they had a heel contour,LSR nut and a thinner neck. Not sure on neck dimensions. Check these as i may not be totally correct.

My CS JB neck is definitely not chunky. .81 at the 1st fret, .9 at the 12th.

Interesting. The first Beck I remember seeing in the early 90's had the biggest neck I have ever seen. Period. Bigger than my Nocaster and my Nocaster is .95 at 1st fret. So the mention of a 1" neck above sounds right for those earlier Becks.

I wonder if Fender or Beck initiated the change to a smaller neck???

The current JB neck is easily my favorite neck shape that Fender makes today. It's noticeably bigger than their modern "C" shape, but isn't what I would call chunky. It's just the right size.

I lost out on getting one of the early versions before prices started getting nutso. 1" top to bottom would be awesome! My 2 Warmoth Strats have their fatback carve, which I believe is the same 1."
