A few of the small builders that I’m a fan of offer the full range of neck shapes and sizes but only seem to send medium C necks out to retailers. Is this just the easiest neck shape to sell? It seems like the industry decided it was at some point but I wonder if it’s a situation where that’s just the shape you come across the most so it sells the easiest. I’m a fan of the chunky soft v myself, about a .9 - 1“ being on a 1.650 nut being ideal, and I have smallish hands but it took me a long time to realize this because it wasn’t a shape I came across for years. Obviously companies are gonna do what benefits their bottom line but I really wish there were some other shapes to try from some of the smaller boutique guys in the stores because when placing a custom order it’s not always easy to nail down what specs of a neck you want without having a real-world example in hand. Also, has the “U” gone the way of the dodo? I don’t really see it anymore.
