    Hi guys,

    how's winter treating you all?


    I bought a MIM sunburst thinline cabronita off reverb a couple months ago, and the neck is hands down my favorite so far.
    Not saying it's the best fender neck ever, but rather that it fits my girlish hands the best so far.
    The specs I could find online were very simple and limited, and I'd love to have this neck shape/name/digits down so I can try and find more models equipped with it.

    I was wondering whether you cabronita owners might be able to give me some lead on other telecasters that have the same neck shape, and also on whether other thinline cabronita models have the same neck (ie. MIM non-thinline, other release years, and maybe one day MIA cabronitas).

    thanks and a great day to all of ya!

    Get some of that moldable plastic & make forms of the back of the neck in the favorite frets areas. Take measurements of the width/thickness too. You can then compare it to specs close to what you're looking for.

    Or, you can get someone to make a 3D image of it & save the specs.

    Pretty sure it's just the fender modern C shape.

    Cabronita neck measurements.

    Fender lists it as a Modern C, but a lot of Cabronita owners seem to think that it’s just a bit beefier than a Modern C.

    Whatever it is, you’re not the only one who likes it.

    The thread linked above has more info.

    thanks guys!

    yeah I have a couple other "modern C shapes" that don't feel at all like this one.

    Yes, slightly chunkier than typical modern C.

    Yup, all my Fenders have a Modern C, but my Cabronita is a bit chunkier than the rest. IMO it's the best feeling neck of the bunch.
