I am getting obsessed with guitars and building guitars and feel and tone and all of it!!!! I bought a nice digital caliper and started measuring necks and was very suprised. I thought I liked nice full necks and I thought there was a huge difference in size from one to the other, but I guess I was wrong based on #'s. Its the small things that make a huge difference. I will give you a few. Guitar/1st fret/12th fret Nocaster/.95/1.04 Squire CV 50/.85/.92 R8/.9/1.07 Les Paul Plus 60s neck/.82/.95 65 Fender relic strat/.86/1.0 Now what surprised me was the 12th fret sizes. The R8 was the biggest but the nocaster felt way bigger to me. I am also surpirsed that the 65 strat was at 1.0 and was close to those fat necks but it was a lot more comfortable. The nocaster has a fat U and the others are all C based. The R8 I guess is a LP based profile but is closer to a C than a U. Also, the CV 50s tele neck feels paper thin, especially after playing the nocaster. But it was comfortable to me. I guess a nice C shape and a tapered profile to a larger 12th fret size is what I want. I still cant see how the CV tele was .85 and the LP and 65 strat were close but the neck as a whole felt different. It must be the 12th fret size that has a lot to do with it. I just thought this would be interesting to post and for discussion. What shape is a CV tele neck?
