I've had people tell me "Bubba, you seem to be happy enough, playing this store CV. What's up?" I just get the feeling we get when we're going to too many parties and getting no rest and eating too much of the wrong thing. That is, I can feel my hand sort of breaking down as the thin neck is providing me with no support. Think about how when you were a kid, you could stand on the pavement in your Chuck Taylors all day long, but decades later, you try to do that and your feet will just ache. Aleve, please. So, ask yourself if better footwear as a youngster would've maybe been a better choice. Some people THINK they can play a slim neck now and for decades ahead - I'm skeptical. I think stuff like this catches up with you.
