This partscaster has a vintage style neck with a a modern C shape. I can't say that I have found one (C or U) to be better than the other but I do like a chunkier neck for this style to fill up my hand a bit. The ultra thin profiles found on more shredder friendly guitars just seem a little small for this style in my opinion.
Love it Chris! As for the different neck profiles, I found that they inspire me to do different things. So I can't say I prefer one over the other. When I have been playing a really thin neck for a while, it's awesome to grab my tele (with a soft V) profile - as that will give birth to different ideas.
