The Neck Profile is the coutour or grip shape of the neck, and is important for optimum playability and hand comfort. To determine which works best for you compare the dimensions below (measured from the face of the fretboard to the back of the neck) to those of your favorite neck.
NOTE: Some neck types have limited back neck profile options.
Available at no extra cost
The Standard Thin is our most popular neck profile, very similar to modern Fender® necks. Its medium "C" shape will feel comfortable to most players.
The Fatback is our thickest, roundest neck profile, made for players who love a fat vintage feel.
The Boatneck is the same thickness as the Fatback, with smaller shoulders. This results in the same fat feel in the palm, but easier access for the fingers and thumb.
Available for $35 extra
The 59 Roundback is based on early Les Paul® neck dimensions. It is also our neck profile most similar to the PRS® neck shape.
The Clapton features the soft "V" shape popularized by Eric Clapton.
The SRV is based on an asymmetric shape popularized by Stevie Ray Vaughn. It is rounder on the thumb side and slimmer on the finger side, which gives it a nice full feel in the palm while providing easy finger access. Compared to the Wolfgang it is slightly thicker and less off-center.
The Wizard is a thin, flat shape that became popular in the 80's and remains so today. Easy access and speedy fretting define this shape.
The Wolfgang is based on an asymmetric shape popularized by Eddie Van Halen. It is rounder on the thumb side and slimmer on the finger side - a very comfortable shape that feels both quick and substantial. Compared to the SRV it is thinner and more off-center.
