I'm a beefy neck guy. I have a bunch of Musikraft custom ordered necks with fat profiles. Since I already loved them when I started getting the LP itch (after 30 years of playing) I went with 50's profile on a 2012 Trad +. I have 2 57 RI's that have great necks, BB7 and R7, both are very similar but the R7 may have a little more fillness if any.
My 2010 Traditional LP has a very comfortable 50s style neck. When I was trying a few out before buying it I immediately preferred it to the asymmetrical profile of the Standards or the thinness of one of the SG models I tried. The '52 reissue Tele that the LP replaced also had a baseball bat neck which I loved (just not as much as the Les Paul). Of distant relevance, my Japanese Strat has a hard V profile which makes it the most comfortable of the five that I've owned. I dig bigger guitar necks
Thank you. That has been standard knowledge I thought. Of course they all vary some. And later year R8s (2013 and later) are not as fat as previous years. My 2005 is huge..need to measure it some time.
