    Pretty much why I’m not getting one of these necks. Granted, I haven’t seriously considered asking/seeking out a clubby neck profile. Probably would be super neck divey lol.

    Wow, crazy thin!

    just curious, how many guitars from electrical guitar company do you own?

    thought you had a couple at least, but maybe I’m wrong...

    Amazing I have had a few this one I ordered to get the mastery! The neck takes some getting used too as it feels alien or weird at first but once you get used to it its awesome!

    Maybe I am weird but I like thick necks too just for different reasons and on different guitars of course. No neck dive on this but it's heavy almost 12lbs

    I've owned a few aluminum-neck guitars (Travis Bean 1000, a few Kramers, and a Vaccaro); the only one remaining is the Kramer 450G. The coldness of the aluminum had a weird feel to it. I kept the Kramer because it sounds so good.

    I have played quite a few and those and the guitars that got me started. I will say at this point and the newer ones are much more precisely built. Maybe it's the machine they have now but if you get a chance to play one I would go for it!

    I wouldn't have the faintest idea what to do with a creature like that...

    Like the brushed finish on that DC Tele body or is a Coronet shape? Both are similar.

    I like shallow necks myself. My fave neck is a soft v on my fave guitar a 57 reissue strat

    Yours is a good looking guitar too. Tremelo has become mandatory for me ,why i`m only playing the strat these days.Are those p90s or humbuckers in it?

    I'd like to play it. However thin necks make my hand cramp and D shape is usually uncomfortable so i probably wouldn't buy one.

    This neck really deserves a double cut in my opinion.

    Yeah me too even when I play a hardtail I reach for the trem! They are what they call their big box single coils kind of P90 ish but definitely single coils.

    SG's were always known for thin necks and I find that they can help for fast playing and slide. Chunky necks can be comfortable, but they can also hinder in some aspects.

    Gotta know how to adapt to whatever you have in your hands at the time and use it when you need it.

    Agreed I still like my boat necks I actually think switching up is a good thing!
