big fat D nocaster
1.70 -1.75 wide D or U-ish no more than .830 thick.
Like an overgrown Charvel type.
Shoulders add support and guidance.
MM guitars feel shockingly scrawny.
vintage U- 1 inch through and through!
Your neck sounds like what I did with my parts-o-Nocaster. I got an Allparts Tele Fat and took down the shoulders a bit, so no change in depth, but more of a C-bordering-on-V profile. Love it.
My other favorites are my ‘46 J-45, which is just smaller than a Banner J-45’s baseball bat, and my new ‘66 Harmony Little Sovereign, aka Queenie - it’s just between my Tele and J-45. Perfect.
I know many, many players are Neck Agnostic - you like and want variety. I am Neck Monotheistic - I only want guitars that have a full chunky/comfy neck. Since I know this, it’s what I focus on and I love the guitars I have as a result. It’s all good.
Ibanez Super Wizard flat and thin.
Suhr Even C Medium, 1 11/16 nut width, 10”-14” compound radius.
Chunky D - most of my axes have it. Feels like home.
I have smaller hands, so thinner is generally better. I'm fine with the Ibanez Wizard profile, most C profiles, somewhat slim D profiles. Definitely can't do V profiles.
not that fussy but i'll say ……….
Warmoth Fatback is nice
Ibanez Wizard (RG). Thin, wide, super easy to play fast and bend on.
I really notice there are so many strat and LP players on TGP so it kind of skews it to the thicker neck answers. I have a strat and an LP actually but the RG is my home.
Fender "C" profile.
PRS S2! pattern regular.
I prefer bigger necks; my EJ has probably the skinniest neck that I’m comfortable with. My favourite is the Warmoth 59 Roundback on my VG Strat: it’s big enough to be comfortable with but I can still get around quickly on.
Easy. A big V
My favorite that I have played is the medium C that I got from Musikraft.
I can play just about any neck except the harder shaped v necks.
I like thin ones and thicker ones, strangely.
I REALLY like the neck on my revstar rs502t. It has a pretty radical taper, but my hand feels good at any place on the neck.
My preference is c shape with lots of taper fat on the bottom skinny up top, I also like taper on the width skinner nut not to much but a little, feels more refined and less clumsy. Vintage radius on a Strat but .104 wide frets and medium high action, completes the dream specs. I found out I don't care as much about the depth of the neck as I do about the taper.
I like a thicker C.
I'm most comfortable in the .9+ to 1.0 range with C/D profile. !0 years ago when I was 100 pounds heavier it was more like .86 to .96 with less shoulder.
