    step 1 - get out yer calculator
    step 2 - re-read post #1, the part that says:
    Neck Thickness: 1st 22.2mm, 6th 23.4mm, 12th 23.9mm

    1 mm = .0393701 inches

    Very cool. The black pickguard is a different touch. Really nice.

    .87 -> .94 not too chunky.

    Nice git, happy NGD.

    I dig it. Some of those heavy relics just feel and sound too good to pass up. Even if your not in love with the look. (I like them)

    I never understood the appeal of heavy relic until I tried a similar CS ‘51 Nocaster at Emerald City Guitars in Seattle yesterday.

    It was the fat neck that got me coupled with how light the guitar was. And it played and sounded awesome. Now I get it. The whole experience of that guitar was out of this world. Worth every penny I’m going to save to own it.

    Big Mew fan. Is that "the actual guitar" being used to play that confounding intro ?

    That is a bitchin' guitar - I love the black nocasters, and I love heavy relics. I have the blackguard version, but if I were starting over, I would find one of those black ones. Too lazy to switch now though, especially since I love mine so much as it is.

    Very cool. I'm a sucker for black relics, just love that look of aged black nitro finish especially with a black guard.
