26 Windsordave 10 months ago I'll be financing the guitar, so I don't wanna waste their time up at street sounds as I won't be just plunking down $2000+. I would love to check them out though! I have a 57 silver jet which has, I guess, a medium C shape? I love that, but could use a little more girth. The 59 6120 specs claim a V shape, and the others all day "standard U." what is the standard U, thick, thin, medium etc? Right now I'm really aiming at the Vintage Select smoke green annie, with the TV HiloTrons, I kinda like the unbound fretboard, and I love the green!!! That model is $2399 By the very nature of the U-profile, in order to create sides of the U, the neck can generally be a bit thicker/deeper than a C but the actual difference with a C or D profile will create 'shoulders' to the profile, creating more mass - square centimeters/inches - to the cross section of the neck. The other active thread shows this perfectly and it's this total mass that your hand will feel, as opposed to the neck's width. My sanded down Super Chet's wide neck - 1.80" - is a shallow C and easier to wrap my hand around to thumb fret than my '41 Synchro which is the standard 1.685" wide but a deep asymmetric U-shape.
