It's interesting though. Some companies will give you the exact spec of the neck, down to the thickness in thousandths of inches... but I can't say I'm too bothered about that. If you can't play before buying, how do you make a judgement on whether it's right for you or not, based on those numbers alone?

Yeah I know that's the fretboard radius, I just don't know any other way of spec-ing out the neck since Fender gives somewhat limited information, at least from what I've seen. I've played one a few weeks back at a local used shop. Went to buy it a week later and it sold that morning, so I've been on the lookout ever since.

Felt a tad chunkier than my current Fender, but not so much as to render is unplayable. Significantly chunkier than the Cort's standard neck, though I can't compare it to a Manson (I assume they're at least similar).

As an aside, just bought my Biffy Ticket. Pittsburgh will assuredly be one of the shittier stops on their current tour.

There are details and then there are D.E.T.A.I.L.S.

But I don't see the point in knowing the neck measurements unless you're actually building the guitar to a precise spec.

Most manufacturers only give out basic information like that. Have you played a '65 reissue before? I was surprised how large the necks on those are. Definitely more than a U.S. standard for example.

I forgot when biffy are playing here. It's sold out and I have a ticket, but I can't go

I'm pretty sure the body outline has been cut out and that's it at the moment. Sorry, I've been busy for the last week and now I'm going away tonight for most of the next week too, haha! Should have messaged you before to save time, but I'll drop you a PM now.

I thought they would've had a bit more done with it. After all, it's been nearly a year since the brexit caused you to crack and order a new custom. It's ok though. I did the same.

Also, Jaicen

Somehow I don't think it originally cost anywhere near that much

Not a chance. My MA 007 didn't cost that much as a custom build.
