    Which neck thickness tends to be your favorite or most comfortable? I played a neck yesterday that was .870 to .940, and it was very nice.

    Big.

    .9" to 1.0" feels just fine, to me...

    Thickness isn't the issue, it's playability. I've played some sticky Nocaster necks or guitars that just didn't flow for whatever reason. I like my Vinetto's, Vince has a way of making the guitars feel broken in. My strat and tele are different sized but both are really nice to play. If you had a gun too my head I guess i would say NoCaster sized.

    Depends on the guitar for me... but generally on the bigger side. I just can't get into the huge Gibson necks of the 50's.

    Tele's - 51-54 u shaped big..
    Strats - 55-56 boat neck big
    Les Paul - 59 medium
    PRS - wide fat

    I just love the soft V shape of my Clapton Strat.
