Which Current Tele has the Fattest Neck?

I'm looking for some girth! The '52 RI? Baja?

Also, I prefer no S-1 switching and a 3-barrel bridge, but I can fix those if need be. Suggestions?

I'd get one built if I was you. You can get the exact specs you want that way. I had a Tele put together by TGP member Superlead that turned out great. It has an nitro finished All Parts fat maple neck on it. It's 1" from the nut to the 12th fret!

Is there a good way to try out neck profiles/nut widths at somewhere like Guitar Center (I'm in Atlanta if it helps)?

Custom Shop Broadcaster.

Of the productions, the Baja Tele.

Aftermarket, both the Boatneck and Fatback Warmoth necks are huge 1" all the way down.

The Gatton Tele has the biggest neck I have played on a Tele. I believe you have a body and are just looking for a neck? Y ou will never get one from Fender so you can either go the Warmoth route or have one built.

Thanks, guys. It sounds like those boatnecks are what I'm after. Maybe I'll buy a loaded body and bolt one on.

'52 RI with its big U felt much thicker to me than the Baja's V. I prefer the Baja's profile all the way, but it's a very personal thing and there are legions of '52 RI fans that would burn me at the stake as a heretic for saying that ;)
