  • So what other guitars have that Nocaster neck?

    You know, the gloriously huge "baseball bat" one?







    I like big necks- and I cannot lie! The bigger the better in my books and a 51 Nocaster is by far the biggest neck Ive ever played, even bigger than at Gibson 50s profile



    Obviously, custom shop Nocasters are prohibitively expensive so I was wondering what other alternatives (dont have to be Teles) also have enormous necks? Would a 52 tele cut it? There seems to be plenty of those available online?

    Peavey Wolfgang and similar VanHalenesque models have very husky necks.

        My G&L has a really chunky v-neck.



        Not sure how how it stacks up to the nocaster but it's real fat!

          I've played a Nash Tele which had a very beefy neck.

              Biggest neck I've played was on a Rick Kelly (NYC boutique builder) Tele. I think he builds some guitars with an over 1" neck and no truss rod. Long wait for his stuff though.



              I've played some Nashes with big necks too...I think he's just using Warmouth/Allparts necks, so his necks will vary depending on what neck carve he decides to put on.



              I think the Gibson R8 is kind of the "standard" for big necks, isn't it?

                    A friend of mine has a partscaster with a Mighty Mite neck that feels pretty chunky too.

                      The actual dimensions are too close to call between a pukka Gibson 50s which is around 0.960 (1" - 1mm) or the full 1" necks that Fender use, and the Gibson profile means in cross section you're actually holding more wood.



                      The reason why Fender necks are thus is that they all start life as a 1" thick board, with width differing depending on whether they plan to us it for a Strat or Tele neck

                        52 Tele neck is pretty thick.



                        Check out the Warmoth boat neck. I've never played one but I believe they're very thick.

                          Warmoth Boatneck is a stock 1" with a soft V, the Warmoth Fatback has more cross sectional meat due to it's profile

                            Actually, they are considerably smaller.

                              the new 52RI are supposedly almost as big as Nocasters. the older ones (97-2011) are not nearly as big.
