It looks like the Vintera has a more traditional headstock cut near the nut, deeper carve so that it doesn't have the pointed walnut plug of so many "modern" necks. Personally I dislike the elongated, pointed plug. Find it to be a turnoff. Picky I know, but that's me.
I hear ya. I became a compound radius fan when i got my 2014 Deluxe Tele's. Those Corona necks are a thing of beauty, and won me over, for the comfort i felt. They are not thin, more modern c shape. Past a certain point, thin is not for me.Weirdly I’m not a fan of the compound radius thing. This is my second neck with it, and I’m pretty sure it’ll be my last. I get the appeal in theory, just doesn’t feel right to me.
The profile is crazy thin, feels even thinner than the spec. I know it’s only a 10th of an inch thinner than the Vintera V but it feels like it’s 2/3rds the width of it or less.
