Hi,
Does anyone know what type of neck is on a 60s Hofner Galaxie? I recall that they are pretty thick, maybe a fat C?
Thanks,
Coal

The '60s Hofner necks I've played were quite thin, especially for the time, but I haven't played a Galaxie specifically.

I loved that neck. In fact, the neck was the best thing about that guitar next to the jangly sparkly goodness of the pickups. Not too thick, not too thin, Just RIGHT! Try to Break it, it won't die

My own experience with Hofner necks on the Galaxie/176/172/173 from the early-to-mid-sixties is fat C. I've owned/repaired/handled over 50 of them. I think later ones may have gotten shallower. YMMV.
