This is the type of ads l get on here...lol
Mine measures about 8 1/2". I prefer fat necks on LP's but Im ok with Fender and Jackson necks. Never like wizard necks unfortunately though the 80's RG I had was terrific otherwise.
My measurement is almost 9-1/4".
I like smaller, thinner towards midsize necks.
I like the 60's Gibson Les Paul Necks but i can play anything!
You know what "they" say! Big hands... big... gloves. Ahem.
I love thin, sanded/oiled necks ala Wayne or Charvels.
I'm a 9.5". Oh, you mean my hand? Um...9.5".
I'm startin to think maybe it's all in how far you like your thumb to hang over the top.
Seems like the majority of us have a stretch of 9.5"!
It's not the size of the hand...it's what you can do with it.
fingering is important
Twice the fun and good for playing double necks
Seriously though, 9.5". I don't have a favorite neck, I just adapt to the guitar.
yeah, people tout ergonomics all the time. I think that you'll ergonomically adjust to any shape.
People say that about cameras too. "Whatever fits best in your hands"...
I say get the best tool for the job & your hands will adjust to fit best.
Woooo buddy I let my thumb hang out all over the place. Sure comes in handy for spicing up guitar parts
Lots of guys have remarked about my bizzare chord fingering. I never took guitar lessons so I made it up as I went. Main things I do different from most is the way I finger open D, open A and scales covering three or more strings
I would mostly agree, being a long time Jackson guy.
But every time I pick up my Ibanez my fingers become a jumbled mess. Sure, I can play it, but it's not ideal at all.
And then I'll grab a bat neck and everything is just....more comfortable. Haven't really played any of my Jackson guitars in over a year now either, but I do get along with them way better than that damned Ibanez I have!
I guess the point I'm making is that for me, there is such a thing as too thin/narrow/small to be efficient. But that has less to do with the shape and more to do with mass, or lack thereof, I think.
For me its not the neck its how my pick hand fits and feels against the tail piece like the difference between a Gibson LPS and a Fender Strat!
Today at 61 with a hell of a lot of "Arthur-Idus"..lol Thin wide for me please...
I deal with that same thing too. My FR guitars are all set up floating, flush with the body. But my Explorer and V's are not! Going back and forth between the two types messes with me for a bit, and then I'll adapt/adjust
I bet you wear big gloves! Lol
