Classic vibe necks

Is there much difference between them size/profile wise, the rosewood on the custom and the maple on the 50's ?
Cheers

As far as the Tele's go in my experience the CV and the CVC are the same thickness, more or less.

Hardly worth worrying about. I have the option of either to purchase so it's now it's purely a cosmetic choice.
Decisions, decisions.
Cheers all.

I just put a rosewood neck from a Squier CV custom onto my Squier CV50, and they are almost exactly identical. I couldn't tell any difference in profile or thickness.

Not directly answering your question, but I put a '60s Classic neck on my CVC, and I like it a lot better - the '60s Classic isn't super-thick, but it's a lot beefier than the CVC neck.

60's Classics are around .866 @ the first fret.

Wider nut as well, feels substantially more...substantial.

The CV's are 1.625 wide @ the nut same as the 50's Classic Esquire the 60's Classic is 1.650 which is wider but its a small difference.

Good info piling up here for future searchers.

I'll have to get the caliper out and post my CV Thinline dimensions. I would think it's that same neck (maple) as one of the others.

Easy: cv neck is playable, cvc neck gave me pain in the wrist. I kept the neck on my cv, changed it on the cvc.

This is what I found to be true. Although the rw neck that came on my CVC was immaculately finished, one of the best "'out of the box" necks I've ever had, I did end up swapping it with the slightly (but noticeable) chunkier neck from my old CV50 BSB. Got right at $100 for it on eBay.

I did the exact same thing with the same result. Feels identical to me.

The Butterscotch Blonde 50's I played at the store had a much thicker neck than the CVC I picked up used off craigslist. Which sucked, because I really like the 50's neck and I hoped thed CVC would be the same. I got such a steal on the CVC I couldn't pass it up. I sold the neck/tuners for about half the price of a custom build Musikraft chunky C-2 neck (no frills or finish). Now if it would just hurry up and get here.....

Those are around .860-870 deep at the first fret.

Perfect feel.

The CVC neck I have on my partscaster actually feels chunkier than I expected, given it's only .835 deep at the first fret - might be something to do with the fact the nut width is 1.68 for some reason.

I know we're talking hundredths of an inch, but the slight increase on the various dimensions adds up to a palpable difference, to me anyway.

I can feel the difference.

As long as I can do an E7th like when you play a regular E and add the 7th with your pinky Im ok.
