I've read that they're kind of thin. Naturally i'm gassing for one hard, but am afraid of the thinness of their necks. I'm a long time sg/tele player and generally prefer fat c necks. How thin are they really? Like Jackson metal thin? Or like normal strat thin?

The T-60 neck is closer to a modern íCí than anything else. I have a USA built Strat Plus and the T-60 neck feels thinner but I canít say for certain without checking both necks with a micrometer. I actually prefer the T-60ís neck over the Stratocasterís. Donít think itís a thin as an Ibanez Wizard neck.

I've seen necks a lot chunkier (my Epi LP Jr and Epi Ace Frehley LP come to mind) and I've seen necks a lot thinner (shredder Jacksons and Ibanez) than the T-60 neck.

I've never gotten familiar with the Fender neck profiles so I really don't know about them. The neck on my '78 or '79 Gibson 'The Paul' was really close to the necks on all my T-60s. Hope this helps.

Good to hear, I was just afraid it'd be a shredder neck (i mean it was made in the late 70s early 80s, when shread was king). Now to unload my tele. Maybe.

If you've got some big mitts, it may not work for ya. I bought one but the neck....to me, was thin and hard for me to play. I'm used to an acoustic when I play a 6 string and chording on a T-60 was difficult. BUT, the guitar sounded killer!!!

The neck is thinner than most out there to me its easy to play but it is for sure a thin neck i have several teles and a strat and it is way thinner than either of themk I am also pretty sure Chip did not design it as a shredder I think he just tryed to cover all the basses and make the best guitar he could
