Neck thickness of Teles.

I'm a guy looking to get my first Telecaster and I prefer baseball bat necks (in the sense of thickness rather than wideness). Between an Agile TC-630, an G&L ASAT, and a Fender Tele (MIM or MIA), which one have the thickest stock neck? (I know there are variations, but let's go with what necks you've encountered).

My tele has a fairly thick neck. Standard MIM Telecaster.

Never tried the others, but I can safely say that the MIM Standard Tele has a fairly thick neck

My custom shop Tele is about 3/4" thick.

I think he wants to buy a brand new tele. At least that's what I'm gathering from the first post.

Ordering from Warmoth would run him far more than just buying one off the shelf.

But you have a valid point.

i have gone through a few MIM teles. i remember a slightly older one (mid 90's) to be probably the one i liked most. the necks are not thick like a gibson's 50's neck profile, but you got some meat on them.
