    The Fender is 1.687 nut width- what is the width on the Suhr you ordered? If it's 1.65, you'll like it, as it's a tad narrower than the Strat. As far as thickness, i think the Suhr neck will be a little thinner, but not by too much. I could be wrong on that, it's been a while since i sold my AmDlx...
    From what you say though, i think you'll find the Suhr neck nice and comfy.

    the width will be partly due to nut width. The fender deluxe is 1 11/16ths. What nut width did you order on the suhr?
    The suhr even C slim is pretty thin. I think if you find the fender too thin you might prefer the suhr medium or 60's standard - not real beefy necks but just a touch more meat.

    Good news on the nut width then...coz the Suhr is 1.650....just worried about the thickness now, the guitar has already been purchased,not on order,so cant really change anything now,but yes,from the site specs i would have loved the even c medium...apparently Andy Timmons checked out my bud's Standard Pro S3 and loved the neck...its just so personal...welll...maybe i'll get a custom neck from Suhr someday to replace on this guitar,but its a heavy aged fiesta red antique,will be tough to match finish...thanx for the inputs guys

    when did you order it? if it has not been long they might not have even cut the neck yet and could change the spec.
