i have a mexican standard strat, and i have trouble playing on it because i have really big hands


can anyone recommend me some good replacement necks?

id go on warmoth but i have no idea what to look for

I suggest a 7 string neck with a custom spaced bridge, nut, and pickups...

Or perhaps you could look into baritone necks.

As far as guitar necks go, they are all similar in "siz" like width of the fretboard.

The can very in length and back contour though.

What part is too small, in particular?

hmmmm.
Well, I'm sorry to say, dude, but you're outta luck. For a strat, there's strat necks, strat necks, or strat necks, and you can take your pick. I'm sure you could make/have someone make you a neck that's longer and compensates as such in fretboard length...
what about it is hard? fret width? or is it the thickness of the neck?

I don't know how big your hands are, but Alex Lifeson from Rush has some of the biggest hands I've ever seen... and he can play on strats and teles

the frets are too small, do they make strat necks with anything larger than medium jumbo?

also the thickness of the neck sucks


also soloing on a strat is no problem, its playing barre chords and chord voicings past the 10th position that give me hard times

well, if the problem is the fret size, then you can refret it so the frets are bigger. But I know what you mean: I have the same problem with my strat. I just kinda deal with it.
But, hell, that's what made jimi great. he had /huge/ hands, if I'm not mistaken. And, of course, he also played a strat.

Play a sustitution chord... instead of playing D minor on the 10th fret barred, play it on the the 5th.... simple as that, Usually I never play barchords past the 10th, because after the 11th fret things become tighter and tighter each time more
