What type of necks do you prefer? Do you love fat necks? Do you love thin necks? Can you transition from one neck shape to another without taking much notice of the differences? What neck shape is perfect for you? What necks shapes do you hate? Share your story. I would say that I gear more toward fat necks. I am 6ft3 with larger than average hands and I would say my favorite neck shape is in the 59 Les Paul ball park. Most of the guitars I own have a fat necks. The thinnest neck I own is on a 1960 Les Paul reissue which is probably my favorite guitar, even though I usually prefer fatter necks. The slimmest neck I own on a Fender is a Strat with a "Large C" neck shape, which I tend to feel is on the slimmer side, even though it is marketed as "large". I own a 1954 reissue Strat with a "54 Strat U shape neck" which is the biggest Strat neck I have played and very comfortable. I love it. I also have a Tele with a big Nocaster neck which I grew to love. At first it was almost a tad too fat. Mostly the huge shoulders took some time getting used to but now I really love it.
