I'm starting to look at other guitars to replace my main - a Dean MLXM. However, i realized i really like the neck profile of my dean. if u will, please tell me what the neck profile is on a Dean MLXM. I'm rather uninformed on being able to detect which profile is which, so if anybody could help out it would be greatly appreciated.

no results. not even funny.

I think most deans have a D profile. However, profiles are not industry standards. A thin U from ESP could be the same as a Wizard II or as a Dean, or very similar. I reccomend you to just go to stores and play lots of guitars. Find one with a similar or a better neck and you can begin there. You could also just meassure your neck and go to Ibanez's, jackson's or warmoth's website. They offer their neck's dimmensions and warmoth makes custom necks so they give quite a lot of info on contours and such.

EDIT: fender has some info on their necks too, but it's kinda difficult to find on their website's actual design. For jacksons go to the model's specs, and for ibanez too.

EDIT:

1st Fret: .735", 12th Fret: .810"
or
