Thanks BigJim, the link isn't working. I did a search for it and nothing is popping up.There is a "HotRod 62" on there now, probably the best production neck Fender has ever released...

I appreciate any guidance that could be given. I have turned to the wildwoods, because I have owned or tried out a few (a MIM, an American Standard, an AVRI 62 and currently have a MIJ 62 w/ 57/62 pickups and a 920D 50s wiring harness) and I have loved/liked many aspects of them and really enjoy the tone of my current strat with those pickups and harness. I just can't come to terms with the neck. I started on an epi LP with a thick neck and when I have moved to an LP with a thinner neck, I don't really connect with them. Currently I have an R8 and an R0 LP Special which has a '58 style neck and I just love them. I have tried one thicker necked strat and it felt more natural to me. SO I am hoping that my be the right sauce for me. From my research, those wildwood thin skins are the most consistently fatter necked strats, without going custom shop. So really what I am looking for is a thicker necked strat model. I do have the preference for a rosewood fretboard, but otherwise I am opened minded to other models I may not be aware of, so any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks for replying to my post.Just an FYI comment: I've had many Strats, including a Wildwood 54 AVRI thin skin. It was a really, really nice piece. For me though, it wasn't the end all Strat. I'd suggest you broaden your search a little. I think there's a lot of em out there that are great pieces.
Yeah, like a nice, light early Eric Johnson. yum!Just an FYI comment: I've had many Strats, including a Wildwood 54 AVRI thin skin. It was a really, really nice piece.
