Title says it all, I'm curious as to what companies make thin and/or very comfortable necks in your opinion. My local shops don't carry much, so I figured you guys would be helpful.

The search bar availed nothing.

Ibanez, ESP, and Jackson are the big-names that make the thinnest necks, in my experience. PRS necks are also exceedingly comfortable.

I have a Peavey T-15 neck on this new guitar I bought, it's really slick.

PRS for sure. When I first picked up their new Mira model I was just amazed at how fast the neck was.

I know which company isn't, Dean or Gibson, I wish I had a fast Dean neck


Agh, and I was thinking about a Dean VMNT too...

Ibanez, Jackson, Vigier, Caparison, etc.


You can only get a hold of Vigier stuff in France if I recall correctly.

Dean VMNT is different, it's plays almost exactly like a Jackson King V, there's only one small differnce between the two, but it's so small that it's hardly noticed, if you like the way a King V feels, chances are you'll like the VMNT.

They're made in France, but available all over Europe, America and probably some other countries.

Well Ibanez is the undispuited king of necks when it comes to "thinness" but the Schecter Classic necks are quite thin; not anything like the Hellraisers. I was also surprised when my agile Al-3100 neck was just about as thin as my Classic. Jackson makes some multi-radius necks or something like that that are also quite thin.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

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.

Guess I'll try and find a King V. What exactly is the difference, though?

^ what's that, an indus?

those vigiers are awesome, i've tried several of them now... just not the exact spec i want (width of the neck is the main one, which is annoying)...

Beat me to it. Hagstrom have been making super-thin necks for decades now. I want a Viking, because I love semihollows, but my hands are small, and my Ibanez AS-73 feels a bit thick around the higher frets.

Well, if you get the pro VMNT it has active pickups compared to the King V's passive pickups. The livewires in the VMNT have a better punch in my opinion.
#37
The Dean [V] shaped neck mostly found on the razorbacks is the fastest most comfy neck I have ever played In my 20 years of guitar, I have owned Gibson, Fender, Ibanez, BC Rich, ESP, Schecter and none can compare.
#39
That is amazing. Where did you find that?
