My biggest disappointment neck wise was the bajaI think the thickest R7 is even thicker than the thickest R8. An 50's AO must feel like a toothpick.
I’d heard here and many places how chunky it is
So I thought, woe! A fender that might be as big as a r7?! Awesome!
Then I got one and it immediately felt familiar, and very much like a guitar I already owned, a 79 lead ii, I got some calipers a little while after that and low and behold it was the same depth as the Baja
So I guess I always had been playing a chunky fender and didn’t know it
So it’s all about point of reference, my dads tele I grew up learning on (a 72) is also the same measurements as my lead ii, to me that’s just what fender necks felt like
