I have an Ibanez atm, and i just HATE the neck.
I have small hands, but still can do some crazy stretches and the String spacing just kills every bend i make.
I need a neck (or a guitar with the neck)
that is wide, not too fat and should be comfortable when doing crazy chords.

I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Also, I like black.

Ibanez necks are wider as are Jackson. If you want easier bending, you should look into profiles that aren't as wide such as a C instead of a U.

No ibanez necks are thin. I would recommend either a Jackson or an ESP for TS.

I mean wide as is tall not wide as in fat.

Ugh I understand where you;re coming from. Ibanez necks are way way too flat and thin. Try getting a fender profile neck, or maybe an old kramer neck. Those are perfect IMO

We are talking about Width, not neck profile.

Ibanez have a 43mm nut width and jackson/esp have a 42mm.

Try out a Gibson/Epiphone. They have a 43mm nut width and nice round fat necks.

I find Schecters to have a rounder neck compared to the more 'metal' orientated companies like Jackson and Ibanez.

Schecter necks are rounder, Think ibanez but slightly fatter. They are very glossy and hard to play on. They probably get better on the higher end models.

Ibanez necks usually have a 43 mm nut width, which is pretty wide. What do you mean when you say the string spacing kills every bend you make? Are you hitting the other strings? You could try raising the action on your guitar.

If you want a guitar to do crazy chords you could look into one with a compound radius fretboard, that should make chording easier on the lower frets. Jackson is one company that comes to mind.

I thought we were talking about width, not neck profiles?

None the less, I've found Schecter to be a bit rounder than an ibanez, though I've played some ibanez that had a tad bit thicker neck than the usual, and it felt pretty good.

Go to a guitar shop and try out guitars till you find a neck that feels more comfortable to you.

Its all preference. Your hands are different than mine, and everybody elses on this forum, so you might not like the same necks that I do. Go to a guitar center and just try a few models, and see what suits you best.
