Hi!

I´ve played
- Yamaha Pacifica 112 (Nut: 41 mm)
- Gibson Les Paul Studio (Nut: 42,8mm)
- Fender American Strat Deluxe 2011 (Nut: 42,8mm)

But yesterday I´ve played a Music Man USA Silhouette Special HSS (BFR Ball Family Reserve Roasted Neck Special Edition)
I fall in love with this neck (Nut: 42 mm, compensated).

I play a lot with my thumb and the Gibson and the Fender are a litte bit to wide for me.

The music I play
- Blues
- Rock
- Pop
- Funk

The problem is, that the Music Man is to expensive (2.400 EUR).
So my question is, is there a simily guitar with this kind of neck.
The neck should have a C-Shape. I dont like the Ibanez kind of metal shape. I´m not a shredder or metal player wink.gif

Many Thanks
Frankster

Ibanez and Jackson has the thinner necks. Have you checked the Ibanez Art? The shape is similar to Les Paul guitars so it's not only a shred guitar.

Check it out:

There is a smaller/boutique vendor called MINARIK That makes the Les Paul shape guitar that I have in my collection that has a neck close to what you are talking about. It's a modified C shape like a traditional less paul, but a bit thinner. The model is called the LOTUS and they are very reasonable on price.
Here is a pic.

Also, as was mentioned do look at the Ibanez Artist series. Also, maybe try some SHECTER guitars as they sort of blur the line between moder and classic necks.

I don't know the exact specs on my Parker Nitefly off the top of my head, but Parker guitars have a pretty thin neck that you may fall in love with. Great tone for any style. Pretty affordable, for the quality. Mine's a 97, so before they were bought out by the big guys in '04 I think.

Hi!

Thanks for the guitars biggrin.gif

@derper
The look of the Parker Nitefly guitar isn´t very beautiful for me, but I will test it

@Todd Simpson
I haven't found an austrian or german dealer
But I will look further

@Slavenko Erazer
I will test it, maybe with Seymour Duncan

@Gabriel Leopardi
I tested a Ibanez, I dont know the model, but this guitar had a U-shape I think.
But i will test your guitar

Thanks
Frankster

I like these ones. I would get one because it has 24 frets. My two guitars only have 22, so I can't play some Petrucci's and Loureiro's stuff because of it!

Hagstrom guitars are supposed to have the thinest necks available due to their patented truss rod design, their vintage guitars look cool as.
