I'm curious to see what everyone's favorite neck shape is. Feel free to discuss/bash/etc to your heart's desire! I lumped these together to their general shape, not a specific brand

D shaped.

And, you forgot asymetrical; some are quite comfy, albeit not if you have your thumb in the middle of the neck like you should.

I thought about adding it, but I decided against it. Instead I threw in the "Other option" haha

C or D.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I love the hard V shap neck profile I have never felt a more comfortable neck in my hands. The guitars I have with V profiles are so easy to play I wish they made every guitar with it.

C or a thicker D. I hate Ibanez Wizards, but I played an ESP Tiger, which had a neck that was like a Strat, but with a flatter back, which I found surprisingly comfortable.
I think it was called a "Thin U", though.

I prefer a thin U.

D and U

i'm not a huge fan of the super thin wizards, but if its that shape with a bit of meat on them i find them very comfortable.

I like thick C on the '57 VOS or the medium V on my Dean.

I've never played a V. It looks uncomfortable.

yeah i was fiddling with a hard V yesterday and got it felt awkward and uncomfortable to play.
#31
Definitely the V shape of Deans, especially the V to C shaped neck on the Dean From Hell. It feels awesome. I'm not sure what type of neck Washburns are, but they feel great too.

Quote by Lumiere Rouge
A reviewer on Amazon.com reviewing an album by the band "HiM", said that HiM is "fag metal".
Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.
