That neck is one of the best ones I’ve held. I’m thinking I might go just a little thicker for a Truxton, so the medium C .850 neck sounds like a good idea!Your silver special is a .830". I remember who that was originally built for. HE always like me to knock off a few from the regular .850"C. If is says med-c, usually that is a .850".
Funny... that's exactly what I meant. Seriously. What I find outrageous beyond description is that Fender can't copy itself decently unless you go to the Custom Shop and overpay in a major way (and appreciably more than other makers charger for better work!) I have all kinds of Fender stuff I like, even a MIM Strat and an Affinity Tele (made god knows where, by robots) and they play and sound (with different PUs) quite fine. But they do not measure up at all to a really finely made iteration of the "same" guitar. And K-lines and others exceed the quality of everything but (maybe) some of the so-called "Master" CS stuff, which is stupidly expensive.lol. Funny how my k line is simply better sounding and feeling than most custom shop fenders I’ve held and played. But at the heart of it youre right. They are “copies,” but built to a higher standard. Ymmv of course
my apologies for misinterpreting what you meant man! I agree. Even the custom shop examples don’t feel or sound like the other builders I’ve played. K line, whitfill, etc. I have a novo on order too. I won’t spend custom shop money for fender. I’d rather support small builders. I end up with a better guitarI did see that... I went with the Extra Light distressing, so just wondering if I should've gone with the Light or Medium option. I think I'll be happy with it though!
